Tinashe is wasting no time setting the wheels in motion for her sophomore album.
The last year has seen the newcomer cement her name into the minds of the masses off the back club jams ‘2 On’ and ‘All Hands On Deck.’ She’s also enjoyed success with features on hits such as ‘Drop That Kitty’ and Kid Ink’s ‘Body Language.’
Speaking to That Grape Juice at the 2015 BET Awards, the the 22-year-old revealed the follow-up to debut album ‘Aquarius’ will be arriving this year.
Confirmed producers on the project include Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and now Diplo.
The latter sat down with TIME magazine recently and gushed about his involvement with the as yet untitled set.
See what he had to say below…
Also coming sooner rather than later is his work with R&B upstart Tinashe. Diplo says one song he recorded with the “2 On” singer will be out by the end of the summer before her banger-filled sophomore LP arrives later this year. “She’s also an international act—she tours all through Europe, she goes to Africa, she goes to Asia—and when she performs live, she wants to keep it uptempo,” he says. “We’re giving her records that feel good. She’s beautiful, she can sing really well, she can dance and she lives right by my studio in Burbank, so it’s not hard to track her down. I really want to do more with her—I really believe in her as an artist.”
We’re buzzed. Ms. Kachingwe is easily one of the most exciting new talents in the Urban-Pop arena. As such, it’ll be interesting to see if she can build on the solid foundation she set on her first swing of the bat.
