MICHELLE have shared their new single ‘FYO’, and a self-directed video
The follow-up to the NYC collective’s previous hits ‘UNBOUND’ and ‘SUNRISE’, which both arrived last year, the song talks about their experiences growing up with mixed race identities.
Jamee Lockard explains: “‘FYO’ is about belonging to different worlds but feeling rejected by both. Growing up as a mixed-race minority in the US, my self concept was warped by other people telling me what I am and am not, pushing and pulling me between identities. Although my feelings of cultural dissonance still ebb and flow, now I have the vocabulary, support system, and perspective to unpack that inner conflict on my own terms.
“We should never give others the authority to define who we are.”
