Broken Hearts and Beauty Sleep by Mykki Blanco

Mykki Blanco

 

Mykki Blanco’s 5th studio album Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep pushes hip hop’s boundaries and norms all while enlisting an all-star lineup including Blood Orange, Jamila Woods, Kari Faux, and Big Freedia. With FaltyDL producing nearly the entire album and Mykki supplying the clever lyricism, Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep showcases Mykki & FaltyDL’s unique relationship and their incredible musical chemistry. While it is undeniably Mykki’s breakthrough record, Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep clearly demonstrates Mykki’s unwavering commitment to their identity and the Black LGBTQ+ community even as they start to ascend the charts.
