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.

Even with the EP's short runtime of 26 minutes, Tkay Maidza is able to effectively establish her rapping, songwriting, and vocal talents with a metric butt ton of insanely memorable ... read more
Tkay Maidza is one to look out for in the future.

Tkay Maidza is a Zimbabwean-born Australian singer and rapper, while this EP is not her first, this EP feels like a debut, despite being a “Vol. 2”. With bigger ambitions, the larger scope of attention, Tkay aims to burst into the female Hip-Hop scene, one that is gaining more and more steam lately.

Ms. Maidza refuses to comply with genre limitations, as in merely 8 tracks, Tkay finds herself at a musical buffet restaurant, ... read more
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!!
