Listen to Tennies, a new cut from Tkay Maidza's upcoming album
The SALVA-produced track joins Carry On her debut album, out October 28th.
After announcing her long-awaited debut album with the release of Carry On (boasting none other than Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike with a guest feature), the hype for young Australian MC Tkay Maidza has been rising at an exponential level. The route to TKAY is well on its way (it out October 28th), she’s dropped details on an outrageously big album tour with Pilerats Records golden boy Sable and Midas.Gold, just wrapped up a quick couple of shows in the US supporting What So Not and even been nominated for a MTV EMA.
Not quite content with the level of world-domination she’s already drummed up thus far, Tkay has just released the second cut from the album – a bouncy, SALVA-produced number called Tennies. The track takes everything we love from Tkay Maidza and crams it into one three-minute track, with breezy and casual vocals from the quickly-rising MC flying across a dancehall-infused production that is reminiscent of early Major Lazer work. The track pulsates with an uplifting and fun energy, sourced from a combination of the casual lyrics and the quick-firing beat, that just make you want to chuck on a pair of $4 Kmart tennis shoes on and absolutely kill the day ahead.
Listen to the track below, which arrives on October 28th with Tkay Maidza’s hyped debut album TKAY and is sure to go down a treat on her upcoming album tour – dates below.
