Mykki Blanco has shared a new single called ‘Summer Fling’ featuring Kari Faux – you can listen to it below.
Produced by FaltyDL, the bouncy new track is taken from the rapper’s upcoming new mini-album ‘Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep’, due out June 18 via Transgressive Recordings.
“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,” Blanco said of the new track.
“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.”
They continued: “‘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.”
