Adelaide MC Tkay Maidza has free reign in new rave-rap track ‘Ghost‘.
After playing pretty much every Australian music festival in the last year, sporting big deal numbers ‘MOB‘ and ‘Switch Lanes‘ and receiving some four SAM Awards just last week, you’d be hard pressed to have missed Tkay.
Co-written and produced by Sydney star George Maple, What So Not and ‘Harlem Shake’ hit maker Baauer, ‘Ghost’ is the product of “hanging out and vibing,” Maidza told triple j.
“George has random vocals she recorded over really cool, dark melodies and we worked together and expanded it. When we were in New York, Baauer came to hang out and we let him jam out with us and it all came together.”
And it shows: there’s a lot of grit and mess for Maidza to work with, giving her raps space to hit hard and go fast before a lighter, hook-filled chorus drops. Have a listen below.
‘Ghost’ is available now via Dew Process and UMA.
