After teasing two upcoming projects, the first since their self-titled debut album in 2016, rapper Mykki Blanco has shared plans to release a brand new mini-album later this year via Transgressive Records. Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep, set to drop on June 18, is a nine-track project that boasts features from Big Freedia, Kari Faux, Blood Orange, and more.
Alongside the announcement, Blanco also shared a new track, "Love Me," featuring Jamila Woods and Blanco's brother Jay Cue. The song serves as the official follow-up to the previously released "Free Ride."
“‘Love Me’ is essentially about so many forms of love, patience, trust, time,” Blanco said of the track in a statement. “It is about the potion that is created when you sift through the ingredients that create ‘love,’ the alchemy we as human beings take part in to convey these feelings deep inside of us.”
