Devonté Hynes re-teams with Friends lead-singer Samantha Urbani.
Earlier this month, Dev Hynes and Samantha Urbani collaborated on a Casio-toned cover of Babyface & Toni Braxton’s ‘Hurt U’. Unlike that decidedly lo-fi affair, ‘You’re Not Good Enough’ has the lush, 80s R&B sheen of Hynes’ recent work, both as Blood Orange and as a producer for the likes of Solange and Sky Ferreira. The bittersweet ballad song certainly sits nicely next to Solange’s ‘Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work’ and Ferreira’s ‘Everything Is Embarrassing’.
Watch the Michael Jackson-indebted lyric video for ‘You’re Not Good Enough’ below. The song appears on Cupid Deluxe, due out on November 18 via Domino. The guest-heavy album also features David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors, Chairlift‘s Caroline Polachek, Clams Casino, Despot, Adam Bainbridge from Kindness, and Skepta.
