One of the first projects that revealed Dev Hynes as a mastermind producer/collaborator was Solange’s 2012 True EP. About a year after that EP came out, though, the two had a very public falling out. We don’t really know the details — and probably never will — but the good news is they seem to have officially patched things up.
Last night at FYF Fest in LA, Solange brought Hynes out to perform True’s strongest cut — “Losing You” — along with another song from that EP, “Bad Girls,” and a cover of Nina Simone/Aretha Franklin’s stunning Civil Rights anthem “To Be Young, Gifted And Black.” Watch videos of Hynes and Solange performing together below; there’s not even a hint of bad blood in that choreography.
UPDATE: Now, as Pitchfork points out, footage has emerged of Solange, Dev Hynes, Moses Sumney, and KING rehearsing their cover of “To Be Young, Gifted And Black” before the performance. Watch that below.
