This Friday, June 18th 2021, Mykki Blanco will drop their highly anticipated mini-album, Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep. Today they share another taste of the mini-album by way of new single It’s Not My Choice (feat. Blood Orange) - a soft mid-tempo soul jam that narrates the tug of war that is a dysfunctional relationship.
The track sees Mykki Blanco navigating the painful realities of a potential breakup, reflecting then pleading to save their romance and keep the love alive. With production from executive producer FaltyDL reminiscent of the early eighties musical stylings of Steely Dan, Michael McDonald and Anita Baker, It’s Not My Choice finds Blood Orange’s Devonteé Hynes crooning melancholically over a lush synth and saxophone laden baseline.
Today’s single follows the recently released Summer Fling which Flood Magazine labeled "a prime contender for summer anthem 2k21." Previous to that Mykki shared Free Ride and Love Me (feat. Jamila Woods and Jay Cue).
