Watch Blood Orange’s “Hope” Video, Featuring P. Diddy, Tei Shi and Empress OfImages via Domino Record Co. Music News Blood Orange
Shades of red, orange and brown melt and mend together on street corners, curbs and parking lots in Blood Orange’s newly released music video for “Hope.”
Taken from Dev Hynes’ newest Blood Orange project Negro Swan, the “Hope” video features Empress Of dressed in a full-vinyl outfit and dancing in a parking lot, a two-shot of P. Diddy and Tei Shi performing in the studio (where Diddy glistens in the low light and looks entirely at home), and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameos from Tyler, The Creator and A$AP Rocky.
The Hynes-directed video was released as an Apple Music exclusive on April 2, but was made public on Blood Orange’s YouTube channel on Monday night.
Hynes is currently rounding out the final dates of his North American tour in support of Negro Swan and will be performing at several European festivals later this summer.
