So on April 13 Tinashe will finally, finally, finally release the album that we have been waiting for since 2015! No joke, it’s almost been 3 years since the first announcement. So look Tinashe, we really don’t want no drama-ma-a but why did it take you so long? Remember in school when you had to turn in a group project and the other kids in your group were lazy af so you missed the deadline? Yeah that’s probably what happened here because there are quite a few features on this album; “Faded Love” with Future, “No Drama” with Offset and the upcoming (probably this Friday) “Me So Bad” with French Montana & Ty Dolla $ign. All jokes aside though, here’s the tracklist and some reasons why this album will live up to its expectations:
- The album includes a collaboration with the Swedish band “Little Dragon”!!! Now I know what you’re thinking… Who the hell is Little Dragon? But I can almost guarantee you that you all know them from their epic song “Wildfire” with SBTRKT. Just google it you’ll be like “Oooh that one!”. The song titled “Stuck With Me” just screams super vibey creative overflow sound!
- Tinashe has matured a lot since her first 2012 mixtape “In Case We Die“, which is an incredible piece of art and sadly most of you have probably never heard it. Also Fun Fact: It features a bonus track called “Chainless” which was the inspiration behind…you already know!
- The fact that the first singles from her new album are very danceable fun chunes is quiet a promise that there will be some deeper tracks in the mix as well. Those of you who have been with Tinashe for some time will remember songs like “The Last Night On Earth” from her first mixtape “In Case We Die”, “Another Me” from 2012 mixtape “Reverie”, and “Bated Breath” from her 2014 debut album “Aquarius”. But even her last project “Nightride” included gems like “Spacetime” and “Lucid Dreaming”.
I will stop right here and leave you with some homework to catch up on this brilliant artist. Enjoy.
