Everything is coming together for Tkay Maidza. In the spring, the Zimbabwean-born, Australian-raised singer-songwriter joined Billie Eilish for part of the pop star’s North American tour. And last month, she released a JPEGMAFIA remix of “High Beams,” a cut from her well-received 2021 EP, Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 3, before featuring alongside Sevyn Streeter on “G Wagon,” the penultimate track from legendary R&B producer Babyface’s new album, Girls Night Out.


With a tour of her adopted home country — where it’s now summer, for some reason — in support of Dua Lipa ending Wednesday (November 16), she’s shared a new song titled “Nights In December” just in time for holiday season. Over a downtempo electro-funk instrumental, Maidza delivers a slick, neo-soul vocal describing a romantic, classy winter trip to New York. “The smoke is filling up the room / It’s got me in some kinda mood,” she sings to start her second verse. “It’s an empire state / It’s a state of mind.”
