Mykki Blanco and Blood Orange Come Together for “It’s Not My Choice” Video

Blanco’s mini-album Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep is out now.

Last month, Mykki Blanco shared their great mini-album—the first of two coming this year—Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep. It featured many talented collaborators, including producer/singer/dancer Dev Hynes, who makes music as Blood Orange. They came together for the lovelorn track “It’s Not My Choice,” which showcases Blanco pleading for a loved one to come back after taking accountability for their mistakes. Today, we get the gorgeous music video shot on 16mm film.

“Creating with Dev Hynes as director of this video was as effortless as creating the song together. I have long admired that Dev has never compromised along his musical trajectory, offering us songs that play between disciplines and genres at the wave of a hand. This video was carefree and captured what I feel to be some quintessential summer moments — being with friends, being in nature, and having a sense of poise no matter your own personal thunderstorm,” Blanco said in a statement.
