Tinashe Readies New Album For November
Tinashe, who released ‘Aquarius’ last year has begun working on her new album. The singer spoke with ‘Billboard,’ on her touring experience with Nicki Minaj, producers she’s working with, and her passion for performing.
Tinashe reveals she’ll be collaborating with Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Nic Nac, Hit-Boy, Travis Scott, Boi-1da and indie producer Dev Hynes.
I really like Tinashe’s drive. I just wish her record label would’ve supported her more. I had listened to ‘Aquarius’ months after its release, and it was a decent album. Songs I liked from ‘Aquarius,’ were Far Side Of The Moon, Aquarius, Cold Sweat, and How Many Times. I would prefer that RCA Records back Tinashe, because a singer shouldn’t have to fund their own videos. She clearly had a direction, that RCA Records weren’t willing to back her up on. Also, I didn’t think her label was alert. ‘2 On’ was a moderate success, though the singer promoted the single months after its release. ‘Aquarius’ was such a slept-on album, and consisted of many unique sounds, which is why I look forward to hearing the singer’s follow-up. Tinashe has potential, so I’m hoping RCA Records supports her fairly.
Tinashe’s sophomore album is tentatively due for November. The new record will consist of different genres, from dance-pop to Hip-Hop. I’m interested to see how Tinashe balances each sound. Wishing her success on album #2.
Random: Which song from 'Aquarius' do you think should've been a single? I think 'Far Side Of The Moon.'
