In the past few years, singer/rapper Tkay Maidza has risen out of the underground to emerge as one of Australia’s most electrifying artists. With her rapid-fire flow, frenetic beats, and fiercely inventive lyrics, the Zimbabwe-born 20-year-old is now set to shake up audiences worldwide with her unstoppably magnetic debut album TKAY.
Maidza brings that dance-ready yet reflective dynamic to each track on TKAY, an album that endlessly warps genres and shows her intense affinity for UK garage, grime, throwback hip-hop, and trap. Joining forces with producers like Salva (Young Thug, A$AP Ferg) and Dre Skull (Major Lazer, Snoop Dogg), Maidza continually pushes to the edge of chaos but keeps grounded in her pop-perfect melodies and masterfully heavy grooves. And in her lyrics, Maidza strikes a rare balance of boldness and vulnerability that gives TKAY a potent emotional charge.
