Following the release of his 2017 album 'Belly Of The Beast', CITIZEN KAY set out on an extensive Australian tour with Illy delivering another exciting episode in his rise as a major hip hop talent. With touring completed, CITIZEN KAY took time out to write and record new songs for release in 2019.
The first of these new songs is the new single ‘EGO’ released in April through his label Asphalt Records. ‘EGO' is every bit a vibe-starter with its funk-filled guitar and bassline, swirling keys and strings and maximum positivity in tow. Bursting with energetic attitude, CITIZEN KAY has returned better then ever!
CITIZEN KAY migrated from Ghana to Australia at six-years-old, from an early age he made it his mission to make music that blended traditional hip hop with the sounds of soul, jazz, blues and rock. This ambition has already seen him collect ARIA nominations for his ‘Demokracy’ mini-album (2014) and ‘With The People’ album (2015) in Australia and given him three Top10 placings in the US College Hip Hop charts with each of his albums, and also along the way, an appearance on triple j’s prestigious Like A Version.
A talented and charismatic performer, CITIZEN KAY has shared stages with some of the best: Ice Cube, Public Enemy, Run The Jewels, Danny Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Earl Sweatshirt plus major tours with Australian hip hop stars Tkay Maizda and Seth Sentry and appearances at the Falls and Groovin the Moo Festivals.
