Tkay Maidza drops new track ‘Carry On’

Tkay MaidzaTkay Maidza has a brand new tune.

‘Carry On’ features Killer Mike from Run The Jewels and has been described as an “absolute banger”.

The track is the first official single from Tkay’s debut album which will be out in October.

The former OUTinPerth cover star has consistently been putting out killer tunes since she first caught our attention by stomping her feet like a Brontosaurus.

“The song is about people trying to stop my stride,” Tkay said, “but I guess what I’m trying to say is I have bigger issues that only matter to me as a youngin at this point in my career and Killer Mike is reinforcing that.

“I’ve loved Run the Jewels for ages as they were the first act I saw at my favourite touring festival Laneway Festival. It was super inspiring to see them.  We had the idea of having him on a song and reached out to his team, they were totally down. It turned out to be ‘Carry On’”

“It was really cool that Mike listened to what I was saying in my verse as his verse is a conversation to mine… to him I must sound like I need guidance, and what he said was really reassuring and relevant for me. I think it’s super important to have support from someone who has so much knowledge and experience in life and music… He is the first person who is a respected and loved rapper to have said they approve of what I do so having him on the song is super special.”

The popular music star will be back in Perth on Saturday 5 November for a show at Metro City to promote the album. Tickets are available from OzTix
