The Needle Drop
Tkay Maidza’s latest EP is hit after hit after hit after hit.

Loud and Quiet

It’s this independent mindset and unapologetic disposition that makes Maidza a magnetic personality, making Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2 an essential chapter in her musical career even as it still only begins to take proper shape.

NME
This may just be a mixtape, but it bodes well for the future, as if Maidza is cutting her loosies away from a major record, experimenting to see what sticks while garnering a wide audience.

DIY
Although the second outing carries with it the powerful urgency that current times inspire, it primarily embodies the might of Tkay’s continued musical self-discovery.

The Observer
This EP is the triumphant sound of someone’s groove – click! – finally locking into place.

Northern Transmissions
This is some of the best contemporary contributions to not only hip hop but to modern music to come out in quite some time. It’s so impressive that at only 23 years old Tkay Maizda has already produced such compelling work, it’s exciting to hear what she will come up with next.

Pitchfork

Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2, is an EP/mixtape that feels like a second debut at a moment when the world might be more ready to process an artist with her unique combination of ambition, pop aptitude, and quirkiness than it was when she released her actual debut four years ago.

This is some real good shit right here!!! no joke, Tkay it's an australian legend and I'm proud to have been a fan of her music since her debut, but now she sounds way more evolved than anything. There's a lot of bangers and some cool smooth pop songs which sets the perfect balance, go ahead and listen babes!!

I didn't expect to like this as much as I did.

Personally I'm not huge on pop music but this is great. Tkay does a great job at mixing pop with rap elements. Most of the hooks are catchy, infectious and memorable, especially the hook for the track my flowers. The only poor hook in my opinion is the one on the track,you sad. It's not bad but doesn't live up to the standard of the other hooks and as a track overall is quite mediocre

The production is so fun and interesting. Its funky, ... read more

This album was mad insane. Literally the first 5 tracks were rap bangers with Tkay spitting some crazy ass bars to some beats. I've never heard 4 tracks that go as hard as 24k, Shook, awake and Grasshopper. Then she chills it with the last three tracks with some RnB vibes. This really has super strong MIA influence, and outshines any other Australian rapper except maybe Sampa. Just Bangers. One of my favourite albums of the year. 24K has strong Noname vibes. Shook has strong Ski Mask vibes. ... read more
