Blood Orange Releases ‘Better Than Me’ Video Feat. Carly Rae Jepsen
British artist Dev Hynes has released the music video for "Better Than Me," a track he recorded under his Blood Orange moniker with Carly Rae Jepsen. The song appears on his album Freetown Sound which was released in June of this year.
The video for "Better Than Me" takes place in an empty city loft where a group of dancers, led by Hynes, move to the rhythm and beats to the track. Each performer is wearing a professional business suit, a contrast to the easy-going, synthpop relaxing moods of the song itself. Hynes is also credited with directing the video.
"Better Than Me" is the second collaboration between Jepsen and Hynes; in 2015, he joined Jepsen on the track "All That" off her 2015 album Emotion.
The video's release ends what has been a good year for Freetown Sound. Hynes' third album was named one of Rolling Stone's top 50 albums of 2016.
