Fresh off his international "Stunt Queen Tour" with fellow queer artist Cakes Da Killa, Mykki Blanco teased today a new music video for his smooth, melodic single, "Hideaway." The track, which appears on his debut studio album, Mykki, was produced by Chicago-based Jeremiah Meece and sees Blanco playing with macho hip-hop tropes--selling drugs or working with drug lords--and queering them.

"So, you wanna know about my broken fairytale?" Blanco questions in a teaser for the tracks' video, which was created in collaboration with W Magazine. "My once upon a time that never was? The big shot that broke my heart? They're all the same," he concludes, softly laughing to himself. The brief preview is mysterious and dramatic, featuring various clips that recall classic old-Hollywood cinema and Blanco cast in a green glow.
Watch the teaser, below, ahead of the video's public premiere on Monday, April 10.
