Mykki Blanco will be releasing her debut album, Mykki, on September 16 via !K7 Records. With just a few days left for the drop Blanco popped on with Zane Lowe to Apple Radio to premiere Mykki track "My Nene." The FADER recently chatted with Blanco about each track on the new album. Concerning "My Nene" she said,
“My Nene” is one of those songs where I get to play with gender roles. As a queer artist, sometimes on a certain song I on purpose want to play with universal things. I on purpose want to make sure that I use wording that doesn’t gender what I do so that it can have a universal appeal. “My Nene” is one of those songs where I’m using words that could be applied affectionately to a man or a woman, and I’m doing it on purpose. For me I’m definitely talking about a guy, that’s my baby, that’s my nene, but through the wording and through not gendering it, also a straight guy or straight woman could listen to that song and completely identify with it.
