MMYYKK has been on the come up since 2019’s ElectroSoul EP. The Minneapolis artist’s sound has only evolved in the past couple of years, a bubbling mixture of Thundercat and the likes of Herbie Hancock, as evidenced by his latest potent single, “Divine”. With gently tapping percussion and bassline so delectable that it’s practically sticky, the song presents MMYYKK at his very best.
As the title readily suggests, the song is dedicated to the divine feminine. MMYYKK elaborates, saying, “Black women taught me how to love. Women literally save the world every day. This track was a way for me to express appreciation and sing praises to the women in my life.“
It’s a stirring, beyond vibey tribute, and you can check it out below or on your preferred streamer. It’s also the first offering from his just announced Science EP, due this September from Rhythm Section INTL.
