Tkay Maidza‘s new album Last Year Was Weird Vol. 2 is the second installment in a trilogy that the Zimbabwean-born Australian-based musician committed to in 2018. It’s another chapter in the creative life of an artist who’s pushing the boundaries of popular music. The LP experiments with R&B and hip-hop and daringly marries her sound to modern pop.
And she remains versatile! Unlike in the singles “Shook” and “Awake” (featuring JPEGMAFIA), both in which she raps, the song “You Sad” sees Maidza singing all through, revealing her soft and playful side.
The soulful song is about the issue of un-returned texts/calls in modern dating and, for the video, the artist teamed up with UK filmmaker Jocelyn Anquetil. The colourful visual creatively places Tkay in a dreamscape which, in reality, represents our obsession with phones and digital communication.
