Tkay Maidza has shared her new single 'Don't Call Again'.
The Zimbabwean-born multi-hyphenate recently signed to 4AD, promising new material in the process.
New EP 'Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2' lands on August 7th, and it's led by a bold new single.
Out now, 'Don't Call Again' is a revealing, highly personal return, one that finds Tkay Maidza linking with rapper Kari Faux.
She says: "'Don't Call Again' is the conversation I wish I could have had in my relationships over the past few years (both romantic and non-romantic). Standing up for yourself can be tough when you're so close to something. When we completed the track, I always felt Kari would be perfect for it because she keeps it so real when she’s talking relationships. Glad we got to do a track together mid pandemic.”
The video was constructed during lockdown, filmed by Tkay alongside animations from design studio Babekühl.
She continues: “It would have been cool to shoot the video with Kari but Covid has me stuck in Australia and her in Arkansas. So we invested in green screens and self-shot a 70s inspired video in our bedrooms."
