Tinashe Teams With Chris Brown For New Single ‘Player’

Published: Tuesday 22nd Sep 2015 by Sam

Tinashe isn’t playing any games with her second studio album.

Indeed, another major name has jumped aboard her ‘Joyride’ project — R&B bad boy Chris Brown.

Details below…

Speaking during an interview on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio today, the 22-year-old revealed that she has a new single with C. Breezy titled ‘Player.’

Described by Billboard as a Dance-Pop number, Tinashe told host Travis Mills that the Max Martin production is due imminently.

The news comes shortly after the debut of buzz cut ‘Party Favors’ and following confirmation that industry all-stars such as Dr. Luke and Dev Hynes have contributed to ‘Joyride’ which arrives in stores in November.


It goes without saying that there is clearly a major industry push behind Tinashe, a fact which when paired with her talent and obvious drive makes her future prospects that much more exciting.

‘Party Favors’ didn’t snatch us though, so here’s hoping it ‘Player’ does!

    Yasss Party Favors snatched me I love it and I’m sure the lead single PLAYER will slay too, I Can’t Wait for JOYRIDE I hope she does her own tour after she’s done touring with Katy Perry! I love all Tinashe music and she’s amazing live!

  3. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 22, 2015

    I can’t wait to listen. She is the newest industry star that I’m looking forward to seeing blow up. If Kesha and Katy Perry can blow up from a Dr. Luke jam then I know Tinashe can too!

  4. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 22, 2015

    Yes, Tinashe! I’m here for it! But what happened to making sure that “Party Favors” gets radio support and proper promotion before working on releasing the next single. This is her sophomore album, and I need her to be a little more commercially-successful because she deserves to be one of the top urban-pop girls right now. I have faith in her and I know she’ll do great this era.

    I want to but I still do not see it for her….

  6. Barb-wire September 22, 2015

    I’ll have to listen to this, but anything with Fist in it is guaranteed to be a mess if you don’t believe me ask Oral.

    Mya’s little clone is such a bore 17kinashe is 2014

    • #TeamTinashe Stan September 22, 2015

      Tinashe’s OBSESSED trolly stan 😀
      And I hope you know the Mya comparisons began with me stating that she reminds me of Mya a bit. So you can get a frying pan and CLOCK yourself across your head with it.

      Continue being a STAN for Tinashe as your on every TGJ post about her and YOU WILL NOT allow yourself to miss one! Lol.
      And Mya has never made anything creative or sounded great like this boo boo..

      • BeyRihLiyah September 22, 2015

        Go fuckkk off you maggot infested hoee i can tell that you are a unloved hoee who craves attention but nobody checks for you

  8. Hey Mrs Carter September 22, 2015

    Ciara’s replacement!!!!

  9. #TeamTinashe Stan September 22, 2015

    I am excited. But I am annoyed with these features with guys that I do not necessarily like such as ASAP Rocky, Young Nugget and no TIRED and OVERUSED Brisk Brown. Chris’ music has sounded the same since 2010. He hasn’t had a evolution in his music since then, it has stayed the same. And plus, he is annoying as hell to me. But anyways, I will try to deal! Smh.

    • RihYonce September 22, 2015

      Everyone does over use them, but don’t try to shade Chris just because he’s annoying to you don’t mean you have to play him to the left like that he’s the most talented male artist since Usher & can make a hit in his sleep, he was ahead of his time in 2010 so yes a lot things he’s already done is starting to get hot in urban music

  10. What now September 22, 2015

    Chris haz been an eh 4 muah since Fame, but I’m here 4 lil Tinashe.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan September 22, 2015

      Glad I am not the only one.

    • Jamie September 22, 2015

      He still outsells her so….

    • RihYonce September 22, 2015

      And he still remains the hottest male artist of this decade so…

      • BEY>RIH September 22, 2015

        Well in commercial success i’d say Bruno Mars but Chris is definitely in top 5

  11. StrawberryMuffin24 September 22, 2015

    Tinashe is the whole package do you research bitter ass haters this she has done it all and can do it all JOYRIDE will be the best Female album released this year along with Tamar!

    Tinashe has a good ear for music I love all her music!

  12. Rihboy September 22, 2015

    Riding Chris brown for exposure! Party favor are no strides in the charts. Poor thing.

    • Rihboy September 22, 2015


  13. StrawberryMuffin24 September 22, 2015

    And Rihanna big forehead can’t even release her wack ass album cause she know that sh.it is garbage! Atleast Tinashe writes her music,stay booked,give her fans music and has a release month for her album!

    TINASHE can sing and perform she’s a real artist!

  14. StrawberryMuffin24 September 22, 2015

    I didn’t like that Ciara album her first 2 were better and plus why would Ciara wear her hair braided back when everyone already think she a man?!lol

    Anyway buy JOYRIDE by Tinashe in November it’s gonna be a dope ass album like all her albums I love her!

  15. bbb September 23, 2015

    It seems like Tinashe was frustrated with RCA on debut CD promo.
    They waited LONG TME BEFORE tv appearances and didnt work any of her of her songs on top 40 radio. There were also no TV appearances in EUROPE PRIOR TO ALBUM RELEASE.
    I still would not have given up on that CD.
    Aquarius was only released a year ago.
    Imagine Erykah Badu only working Baduizm for a year and not going to the UK like she did to do TV,
    Imagine Jill Scott only promoting her debut CD for a year……

    Lol Ed, Justin & Bruno are far successful. Sit down with the crap.
