Blood Orange performs “Charcoal Baby” on ‘Fallon’

The standout from his fourth LP, ‘Negro Swan.’

Earlier this week, Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes) performed his Negro Swan standout “Charcoal Baby,” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Performing against a neon pink backdrop, the British singer-songwriter brought out his full band, two backup singers and a couple of friends to groove with him on stage. The performance was chilled-out and simple: Hynes led the group on his electric guitar while everyone else swayed to the jazz-inflected R&B melody. At one point, his bandmate even broke into an impressive flute solo.

Aside from his performance on Fallon this week, Hynes also dropped a remix for the album track, “Smoke.” The rework, which features Ian Isiah and Yves Tumor, pays tribute to Hynes’ late friend and rapper Mac Miller.
