Tkay Maidza’s radio hits 'Brontosaurus' and ‘Handle My Ego’ took over dance-floors across Australia last year with their original take on dancehall infused hip-hop and her sassy and chatty rap style. Back with a new startling single ‘U-huh’ she’s ready to take on the world with the Dew Process family right behind her.
From teaming up with Swick and Lewis Cancut for the clubby bass-rattler 'Arm Up' to touring across the country with Nina Las Vegas with Wave Racer, Cosmo’s Midnight, Emoh Instead, and her producer Elk on ‘U-Huh’, Tkay Maidza has already been hailed as the hyper new face of hip-hop.
Her instantly infectious song writing, soulful voice, weightless rapping, and self-assured live shows at NLV tour and Bigsound, it’s hard to believe that Zimbabwe-born Tkay just turned eighteen. Already drawing comparisons with MIA and Azealia Banks, but with a style all her own, it’s no wonder she’s one of the most talked about new acts on the up coming Splendour in the Grass line up.
‘U-huh’ shows an incredibly fierce and fearless young woman, her lighting-fast flow and clever wordplay sparks with an insatiable hook that urges you to dance.
