Blood Orange has released his new album
The album, called Negro Swan, features 16 new songs from Dev, all produced by the singer himself. On the album, Blood Orange gets features from Steve Lacy, Puff Daddy, A$AP Rocky, Project Pat, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and more.
One of the standouts on the album is “Vulture Baby,” where it seems like he’s taking shots at a certain pop star that rhymes with Ciley Myrus.
Speaking to Pitchfork about the song, Dev said:
I’m basically talking about an artist — who shall not be disclosed. But I read an interview with them talking about how they were done with hip-hop culture and wanted to go back to… actually, you know what, this could be applicable to a lot of artists last year, now that I think of it…It’s about white people who have got their cred by flirting with rap culture, and now they’re gonna show their country roots. [laughs] I thought it was kind of a funny trend. It was almost like, as PC culture was rising, white people were suddenly like, “Oh shit, maybe I shouldn’t be on this Migos track.”
