Taylor Bennett has released a new Pride track, "Be Yourself," a hopeful bop from the bisexual rapper about the intersections of sexuality, race, and personal identity.

Bennett, who is the younger brother of Chance the Rapper, told TIME:""I wanted to bring a round-table discussion about the insecurities we have. When I say be yourself, I don't mean be gay, be bi, be lesbian, be queer, be any of that. I mean: know who you are, love your body, love what you do, like what you like--express yourself openly."

The song comes as the debut single from his upcoming third EP, and premiered today with TIME.

He continued: "There are gay black artists who have publicly announced their sexual orientation, but never a bisexual African American artist who not only wants to speak his own truth, but also use his platform to raise a much larger conversation than likes and clicks to get to the root of the issue."
