Press Play: Doechii – MPH

Right on cue for this year’s Pride Month, the Swamp Princess Doechii returns with her new single “MPH,” delivering the perfect banger to get ready for the club. On “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake,” Doechii gave us an extensive introduction to herself and garnered applause from the queer community for addressing her bisexuality. On “MPH,” she keeps it short and sweet:

“Yeah, I could give you the conscious shit, but I’m too busy giving you cunt.”

In a recent discussion with Billboard magazine, she spoke about her queerness and its influence on her art:

“As a bisexual woman living in Tampa, Florida during the early 2000s, I stood out from the perceived norm. I felt marginalized by my Southern community until I found my sanctuary online. The LGBTQ+ community provided me with the support and encouragement to defy societal norms and embrace my true self unapologetically. I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to the LGBTQ+ community for embracing me so tightly and pushing not only my music, but also championing my personal growth. My creative work is heavily influenced by both my Florida roots and the vibrant LGBTQ+ community.”
