Zimbabwean-born Australian artist Tkay Maidza has been working hard and has been dropping banger after banger. She has worked with the likes of Martin Solvieg and Troye Sivan and makes her highly-anticipated return this month with her new single ‘Shook’.
The edgy pop track serves as the star’s first single since signing to international label 4AD, where she joins their roster of artists including Grimes, D.D. Dumbo, Purity Ring and more.
The track continues Tkay’s trajectory to stardom by remaining ahead of the curve at every turn. Finessed with razor-sharp production, Tkay oozes confidence with every spitfire rhyme as she dodges between eclectically layered beats while never faltering in her hook of infectious energy. The video, directed by Jenna Marsh, who has famously worked with the likes of Beyoncé, Dua Lipa and Nicki Minaj, is filled with Missy Elliot tributes, fiercely authentic aesthetics and innate flow on an abandoned car yard backdrop, in which Tkay effortlessly claims the centre of attention, highlighting the everlasting effect our Queen of Hip-Hop has in leaving fans worldwide shook.
