Internationally acclaimed British production-and-DJ duo Snakehips have teamed up with award-winning, Pitchfork-approved artist Tkay Maidza for their newest offering: “Show Me the Money”. The latest single to be taken from Snakehips’ upcoming debut album, it ﬁnds Snakehips’ deep, propulsive production underscoring elastic, acrobatic ﬂows from Maidza. The two acts display a natural synergy that uniﬁes their talent into a bubbling hit, which received its ﬁrst spin by the revered radio DJ Clara Amfo on her BBC Radio 1 show on Thursday evening.
Tkay says of the single, “Recently I’ve been into manifesting and self-growth and I felt like it would be cool to make a song that is very pro ‘getting your bag’. I wanted it to be from a more positive outlook; it’s ﬁne if you want to achieve your goals and you don’t have time for other people to waste. I’ve been a huge fan of Snakehips for a long time now so I’m really glad we got to ﬁnally work on this together.”
Tkay Maidza has established herself as one of the most exciting voices in alternative hip-hop, R&B, and dance and has toured the world with renowned artists such as 2022 runs with Billie Eillish and Dua Lipa, as well as Mark Ronson, Charli XCX, Rita Ora, RL Grime and Troye Sivan, among others. Tkay has earned acclaim in the form of a BET Awards nomination, an MTV EMA win, and several collaborations with companies such as Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilﬁger, Nike, Pandora, and Coca-Cola. Her Last Year Was Weird EP trilogy saw her image splashed on billboards in New York’s Times Square, proﬁles written everywhere from Pitchfork to British Vogue, and her songs included on the 2020 FIFA Soundtrack. In 2022, Riot Games enlisted Tkay and BloodPop to pen the anthem “Never Stop Me” for League of Legends: Wild Rift Icons Global Championship.
