Boomkat Product Review:
Zimbabwe-born Aussie vocalist concludes her epic trilogy with this jazzy set of R&B variations, featuring a particularly fab collab with Yung Baby Tate.
You'd be excused for assuming that the title of Tkay Maidza's EP trilogy - "Last Year Was Weird" - was a reference to COVID-19, but since the first installment was back in 2018 it's safe to say that the singer was just prophetic. So there's precious little talk of lockdown or isolation, instead Maidza gives a nod to Timbaland on the trunk-rattling 'Syrup' and impresses with the neon-blasted, harpsichord-led 'Kim', that finds her trading verses with the always impressive Yung Baby Tate.
Maidza has been a reliable fixture for years now (she was collaborating with Bok Bok way back), but has honed her skills over the last four years, quietly assembling a catalogue that's risky and unpredictable. "Last Year Was Weird Vol. 3" sounds as if it's a bejeweled period at the end of a sentence - now it's time for the next paragraph.
