Blood Orange is one of the most talented producers in the game. Hailing from the UK, real name Dev Hynes is best known for his obscure yet magical blend of EDM, R&B, rock & hip-hop. Recently, he unleashed his fourth studio album titled Negro Swan, which focuses on depression from his perspective as a black male.
Stopping by Power 106 for our exclusive Now You Know series, he jokes, “I feel like I realized this music thing was for real about 5 minutes ago, when I met Bhad Bhabie in the halls of Power 106.”
Speaking on his friendship with A$AP Rocky, who is featured on Negro Swan, he states:
“Rocky is like a brother to me. We got close over the last couple years. I’ll stay at his place while I was in LA, and whenever he’s back in New York which is where I live, we link up. There’s a lot of songs that we just kind of get made.”
