Tkay Maidza has teamed up with Killer Mike for her new single ‘Carry On’

Adelaide’s Tkay Maidza has teamed up with none other than Killer Mike for her new single.

‘Carry On’, which features a guest verse from the Run The Jewels co-frontman, premiered on triple j this morning. The hip-hop legend has previously praised Maidza as being Australia’s “biggest rising star”.

‘Carry On’ is the first taste of Maidza’s just announced new debut album, TKAY, which is on October 28. “‘Carry On’ is kind of about me going through troubles and he acts as a big brother, which is really cool,” Maidza told triple j, referring to Killer Mike’s role in the track. “The song is me saying ‘there’s so many people coming round trying to steal something from me but I just want to have fun’.”

Maidza will head on on a run of headlining dates around the country, hitting up capital cities, as well as appearing at BIGSOUND, Falls Festival, and Yours & Owls Festival. Looks like her victory lap is only going to continue.

Listen to ‘Carry On’, and check out the full list of tour dates, below.
