The discography of Afro-Brit Dev Hynes, under the pseudonym Blood Orange, reveals one of the most important pop signatures of this decade. Delicacy, lust, androgyny, virility, finesse, sophistication, refinement, vision, all are qualities attributable to this brilliant artist. Blood Orange’s music is broad and generates a multi-genre, multicultural, multiracial avant-pop, with a European touch despite its R&B and soul jazz influences. In 2013, the album Cupid Deluxe revealed the full scope of his palette, but we might just as easily have chosen his Freetown Sound, another black pearl, revealed in 2016.
