Blood Orange And Carly Rae Jepsen Bring Their Dreamy Collab To Life

Watch the video for “Better Than Me”

Everything that Blood Orange puts out into the world is a work of art, and his latest music video is nothing short of brilliant. Self-directed by Dev Hynes and choreographed by Juri Onuki, "Better Than Me" opens with a clip of Ashlee Haze reciting her viral poem, "For Colored Girls (The Missy Elliott Poem)," as a group of dancers decked out in suits practically soar in a sunlit studio. 

A few minutes into it, Carly Rae Jepsen, wearing a marigold colored sweater with a trench coat, enters the frame from around the corner. The video has this warm feeling to it, with the warehouse practically sun-soaked in light from outside. It's got the same vibe as "I Know" and "Augustine," but something about this track is a little more uplifting. There's a sense of freedom as the dancers openly move throughout the space in sync with one another.

Once again, Blood Orange has created a gorgeous visual that we simply can't look away from. Freetown Sound made our 10 Best Albums of the Year list. Watch the video take on a life of its own, below.
