Tkay Maidza - Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2

Tkay Maidza announces the release of her assertive 8-song EP Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2. Released on streaming services in August 2020, the vinyl will be released on 7th May. 

Her first on 4AD, the release followed 2018’s Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 1, which established her as one of the most exciting voices in the new guard of hip-hop.  Vol. 2 will include 2019’s trap-infused, ARIA-nominated single ‘Awake’ featuring JPEGMAFIA, which earned a best of the decade nod from The Needle Drop, as well as praise from Pitchfork, The FADER, Dazed, Complex, and others.
