CRITIC’S PICK: There is an extra day on the calendar this year, and if you’re down to commemorate 2024’s leap day with some live music, you should know about Tkay Maidza’s upcoming show at the Masquerade. The Zimbabwean-born, Australian-raised, and Los Angeles-based multi-hyphenate has proven herself to be one of the music industry’s most promising global acts thanks to the success of her Last Year Was Weird EP trilogy, which released over the span of three years from 2018 to 2021. Last year, Tkay doubled down on her momentum and shared her sophomore studio album, Sweet Justice.

From the venue:

Sweet Justice, the long-anticipated second album by Tkay Maidza, arrives with a message etched into its face: “I’m never choosing compliance.” Uttered at the outset of “Ring-A-Ling,” the album’s fiery, bass-heavy lead single, that line is a mantra and warning from the Zimbabwean-born, Australian-raised, Los Angeles-based rapper, singer, and producer. An artist who’s been releasing iconoclastic music since her teen years, on Sweet Justice Tkay comes fully into her power, leaving behind toxic people and situations — and the crippling self-doubt she contended with as a result — in her dust. Bright, soulful and seductive, Sweet Justice shows off every facet of the irrepressible Tkay: her lacerating wit and infectiousness, her staunch self-belief and refusal to compromise. “It feels like, at some point, I became too serious. This album feels like a homecoming — a return to the energy I’ve always wanted to embody,” she says. “It’s warm, it’s fast, and if it’s sad, it still has a feeling of hope – I don’t feel defeated.”
