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.
Tkay Maidza burst onto the electronic music scene back in 2014 with her debut EP Switch Tape, earning comparisons to established artists like MIA and Banks upon its release
The singles “Switch Lanes” and “MOB” both made strong impressions on the charts and featured in Triple J’s Hottest 100.
Maidza was only 17 when she released her debut single, “Brontosaurus,” after taking part in an artists’ development program in Adelaide.
