Aussie hip-hop artist Tkay Maidza embraces her athleticism in her new video “Flexin” ft. Duckwrth. It’s a taste of her upcmong new EP Last Year Was Weird Vol. 1, which will be out on August 31st via Downtown Records. Shot in London, “Flexin” shows Tkay’s rugby skills as her athletic squad and Duckwrth join her. Watch below:

“‘Flexin’ is an ode to being yourself and being unapologetic for it,” says Tkay. And what better way than to visually reinterpret that ideal than by featuring athletes who in the last few years have taken massive strides towards shrinking the equality gap between male and female athletes?”

Since breaking into the scene in 2014, Tkay has become one of the most notable hip-hop acts in Australia. Her debut album TKAY was nominated for an ARIA (Aussie equivalent of Grammy) and has worked with Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike, Roye Sivan, and Martin Solveig. She’ll start touring this fall:
