Tkay Maidza has shared the official video for her massive new song “Carry On”, featuring Killer Mike from Run The Jewels. “Carry On” is the first single of her forthcoming debut album titled TKAY, out October 28th via Downtown / Interscope Records.
The frenetic clip sees a blur of cuts and angles spliced together, capturing the energy and effervescence of Tkay’s astounding live show, as well as adding weight to her growing reputation as a modern style icon. The video was directed by Vicky Lawton, Creative Director of UK’s Hunger Magazine.
“‘Carry On’ is kind of about me going through troubles and he acts as a big brother, which is really cool,” she says of Killer Mike as the Run The Jewels rapper gives Tkay some sage advice about busting through the haters trying to stand in her way. “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’.”
