Tkay Maidza - Sweet Justice

Wait, I listen to this EP today with You Sad being my immediate highlight (alongside Shook) and it already has a video? Sometimes we do win!

I heard "You Sad" and "Don't Call Again" at random points of the year, but I'm finally getting around to hearing Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2 in full. I'm floored.

Every time I think the production is going to stay one way throughout the entire song, she manages to subvert my expectations and deliver something fresh. She's special, yup.

I'm in love with her Pixies cover, it treats the original with the respect it's earned while staying away from being a straightforward cover rendition.

I'm gonna get into her discography.

Is there any highlights in particular?
Listen to her last EP, it’s the harder hitting version of her album.

Simulation, Carry On, Monochrome, and Follow Me are great cuts from her album if you wanna check those out too.
 
Still think my favourite Tkay song is "U-Huh", it's so fizzy and enormous-sounding.



"24K", "Simulation" and "White Rose" are also wonderful, and in underrated / unknown corner, I liked her take on Kilter's track "They Say". But she's so reliably excellent in general that you can't really go wrong wherever you start.

LOVE "Syrup" and its menacing nonchalance.
 
I discovered Shook Last week and now I’m obsessed. Just sat and listened to 24K which might be my new favourite, Where Is My Mind is another standout to me.
