Blood Orange's Performance on A COLORS SHOW Is Dripping in Melancholy and Purple Flowers

Watch Dev Hynes give a somber rendition of "Dark & Handsome" from his latest project, "Angel's Pulse."

Dev Hynes of Blood Orange is the latest African artist to give a smashing performance on COLORS.

The Sierra Leonean-British artist gives a somber rendition of "Dark & Handsome"—a track from his latest album Angel's Pulse—with a bouquet of purple flowers in hand, says The FADER.

Watch below.


Angel's Pulse was released earlier this year in July and is an amalgamation of material, inspiration and one-offs from recording sessions that he would usually give away to friends and even strangers, Pitchfork says. Blood Orange gives commentary on what makes art purposeful—must it always be heavy and monumental in its messaging? Listen to the album on Spotify and Apple Music.

The remix for "Ke Star" is hopefully a move that kickstarts Pitori Maradona's continental dominance. Amapiano as a sound has proven popular in many parts of the continent and some parts of the world.
