Published Feb 28, 2020Just under a month out from releasing her new album Mythologies, Lex Leosis has shared another single ahead of time.
"Gemini" finds the former Sorority spitter teaming up with fellow Torontonian Benita, pairing music with a deeply personal message about bisexuality. You can hear it in the player below.
"The song stemmed from a conversation I had with a woman, who stated that, she 'didn't date bisexual woman because they always go back to men,'" Lex explained in a statement. "I had an ex-partner who is a Gemini, that had similar feelings, so when she said that, I just held on to this frustration, both past and present, until I got home, and then wrote both verses in like 45 minutes."
She continued: "The analogy of the two sides of a Gemini, and bisexuality just came naturally with the story. This song inspired me to live in my truth. To come out to my family, to the world. For so long I felt like I had to choose. I hope that this song makes someone feel heard, and understood."
"Gemini" follows previously released singles "I Don't Play That," "Mind Your Business" and the Patrik-assisted "MYB Pt. II."
Mythologies is set to arrive March 27.
