Australian artist announced the release of her self-titled album ‘TKAY’ for end of October.
Tkay Maidza is a Zimbabwe-born, Australia-raised musical superstar up-and-comer. Her debut album TKAY is set for release on October 28, 2016.
The artist teased the album with the drop of a promo single “Carry On” featuring half of Run The Jewels – Killer Mike. On “Carry On,” Maidza fires off on her haters and lets loose a whiplash delivery that deftly sets the stage for a head-turning guest verse from Killer Mike who publicly declared himself a Tkay fan multiple times throughout 2015 – first live on air in an interview on Australia’s triple j where he stated after seeing her performance; “I saw her perform at one of the festivals – she’s dope man, shout out to her. She’s a great human being and a dope performer too. Shout outs mama, you dope. She is dope!”
“The song is about people trying to stop my stride,” says Tkay, “but I guess what I’m trying to say is I have bigger issues that only matter to me as a youngin at this point in my career and Killer Mike is reinforcing that. I’ve loved Run the Jewels for ages as they were the first act I saw at my favorite touring festival Laneway Festival. It was super inspiring to see them. We had the idea of having him on a song and reached out to his team, they were totally down. It turned out to be ‘Carry On’ :)”
