Snakeships And Tkay Maidza Collaborated For A Genre-blending Track

MANILA, Philippines—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.”
