Ahead of the release of their new mini-album later this month, Mykki Blanco has shared another new track.
Landing at possibly the perfect time - shout out to the glorious weather right now - ‘Summer Fling’ features an appearance from Kari Faux and was “inspired by the millennium musical production of Missy Elliot and Timbaland”.
Speaking about the track, Mykki has said: “I wanted ‘Summer Fling’ to feel like a song I could have heard at my middle school dance, maybe it’s because those were the years in which I was coming of age. Y2K aesthetics still influence me heavily at some point in the creation of my songs. I always feel like the Y2K vibe haunts its way into the room and makes its presence felt on my records. “Summer Fling” is essentially about ghosting someone, it’s a playful song about the weird ups and downs of dating. I loved writing this song and it got even better when I recruited rapper and vocalist Kari Faux to be on the track. Kari’s delivery is slick and charged up, she takes no prisoners with her bars. She adds a layer of bravado and feminine mystique to the song. In addition to her verse that she wrote, she also contributed to the writing of the hook.”
The tracks get taken from Mykki’s forthcoming mini-album, ‘Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep’, which is due for release on 18th June via Transgressive.
