ItsNotYouItsMe "Come Thru Thursday Vocals" Features Saucy Electric Tune By Girl Power Group CHAI! & Stellar Australian Dance Rapper Named, Tkay Maidza!

ItsNotYouItsMe "Come Thru Thursday Vocals" features saucy electric tune by girl power group CHAI! And stellar Australian dance rapper named, Tkay Maidza!

“Rising Australian rapper Tkay Maidza has inked a deal with legendary British indie label 4AD, currently home to artists like Grimes, The National, and Big Thief. It’s not a common destination for fledgling rappers, but Maidza, who recently collaborated with Baltimore experimentalist JPEGMAFIA, is no ordinary hip-hop artist. For proof of her refreshing approach to the genre, fans won’t have to look beyond her banging new single “Shook”.

On the track, Maidza can be heard rapping with an elastic flow over a distinctly Missy Elliott-esque beat. The sonic parallel isn’t purely coincidental, either; “Shook” was actually produced by Dan Farber, who helmed the instrumental for Lizzo’s “Tempo” single featuring Elliott herself. Maidza’s cadence during the verse is also slightly reminiscent of Gwen Stefani’s 2004 hit “Hollaback Girl” — a favorite of hers — which further links Maidza with early 2000s pop and hip-hop aesthetics.
However, Maidza has a composed delivery that ramps up to a breathlessly intense surge by the song’s end, putting her in a lane that’s entirely her own. Watching her deliver the sleek hook — “I came, I don’t play by the book” — while shimmying between smoldering car wreckage in the song’s video is a total treat.

Watch the clip below, which was directed by Jenna Marsh, known for her work with Beyoncรฉ, The Weeknd, Dua Lipa, and Nicki Minaj. There are currently no plans for a new album, the follow-up to 2016’s Tkay, but this new record deal is a good indication that plenty more is to come from the 23-year-old up-and-comer."-

"Japanese four-piece CHAI make music to put the notion of kawaii to the test. Instead of letting the term feel limiting, they pushed it to be more inclusive, transforming Japan’s kitschy culture into one that emphasizes acceptance and personality. With two albums under their belt, 2017’s Pink and 2019’s Punk, CHAI are ready to keep that positivity rolling with a new single called “Ready Cheeky Pretty” and an accompanying music video.

Following their March single “No More Cake”, “Ready Cheeky Pretty” continues CHAI’s exploration of neo-kawaii by promoting self-love and finding confidence from within. Armed with their usual hybrid of uptempo percussion and peppy synth, CHAI sound like they’re ready to march onto a football field and preach their uplifting message to a packed stadium. Given their infectious enthusiasm and onstage cheer, it’s easy to imagine them doing so while listening to the track.
“KEEP IT REAL! Go back to the real you! It’s all about moving forward and living by instinct! To go forward with the voice of your heart!” the band said in a press release. “Nothing symbolizes this more for us than the carefree nature, strength, and purity of a monkey. We pay homage to this in Ready Cheeky Pretty because we feel that animals have the ability to be REAL more than humans.

In the song’s music video, co-directed by YUUKI and Hideto Hotta, all four members of the band can be seen dancing to the song through a digital drawing. CHAI groove atop stacks of fruit and on the wings of an airplane. They bust out moves while their faces are superimposed over painted flowers and cartoon monkeys. Throughout it all, they’re beaming, even when they march into a hand-painted sunset. Watch it below." -
