Solange, Dev Hynes + More Cover Nina Simone's "To Be Young Gifted and Black"

by Abby Schreiber

Over the weekend, Solange and Dev Hynes appeared to patch things up when they came onstage together at LA's FYF Fest. During the set, the duo performed a cover of Nina Simone's "To Be Young Gifted and Black" and last night Solange released a beautifully intimate video of the twosome rehearsing the song along with KING and Moses Sumney. It's a quietly stunning moment that Solange describes as "a really special and spiritual moment of solidarity and pride, in celebrating our blackness. I was so grateful to share that with such beautiful like minded artist[s]."
