New Song: Tinashe – ‘Ride Of Your Life’

Published: Tuesday 2nd Feb 2016 by Sam

Tinashe serves up another titillating taste of new album ‘Joyride’ with the debut of new track ‘Ride Of Your Life.’

Produced by Metro Boomin, the moody mid-tempo channels the laid-back groove of the LP’s preceding cuts.

Take a listen below…

Enjoyable, but at this junction we’re ready for that undeniable rollercoaster of a track. That all-important song that just demands attention.

As smart as it’s been to warm the masses up with multiple morsels of the album, it’s important that she brings the hyper heat soon. For new artists in today’s crowded market, there’s a relatively small window to have that mainstream break-out moment, hence it’s imperative to strike while the iron is hot.

That said, it’s anyone’s guess if “Top 40” was ever the desired destination for Ms. Kachingwe. Perhaps, she’s content playing in this alt-R&B lane and wants to grow there.

We hope there’s a broader goal, because there are new names with as much potential as she has.

Your thoughts?

    She has yet to serve a fire track like she did last era with 2on and Hands on deck.. Don’t get me wrong the song is alright but doesn’t stand out and is very forgettable.

    • RihNaj February 3, 2016

      & she wants to be CiCi and RiRi so bad ? I can’t with her somtimes.

      Looking forward to her new album tho she better come harder!

    • BeyTheGr8 February 2, 2016

      Gurl just stop it! This is an album filler at best…U go overboard.

      • FC/JC February 2, 2016

    She’s yet to wow me and I’m yet to get the hype. I have the mixtapes and purchased the album but currently only listen to the track featuring Future.
    This song sounds like a leftover from the debut.

    I love it Tinashe has a great ear for music anything she puts out i love it can’t wait for her new album!

  5. Sam February 2, 2016

    No shade, but when you have an unremarkable voice your music needs to be on point and your beats popping.

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 2, 2016

      Yeah! Kinda like how FREEanna’s music USED to be

      • WINTZ February 2, 2016

        Rihanna Stay OWNING minds!! Lol this post isn’t even about her as per usual the SHOOK hive loves the taste of her name on their tongues!


        Like Marsha’s baby sis from The Brady Bunch, y’all stay forever bothered!! Kii Rihanna this! Rihanna that!

        Rihanna took my faves shine in the music, fashion and film industry.

        Why she got to be a triple threat when she ain’t from my country? It ain’t fair!

        Rihanna gave Coldplay and DRAKE a hit.. And I’m honestly just peeved that my fav didn’t do it first.. Hell she can’t even do it secondly. I’m just so upset at the KING: kiii

        Rihanna’s album rollout is More successful than my fav and her music from her albums actually charts! WHY??? ?

  7. #TeamTinashe Stan (#JOYRIDE…. Coming Soon) February 2, 2016

    When you feel the need to address me make sure you aren’t coming for my own opinion of “liking” something. It only makes you look stupid boo boo.

  9. Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth February 2, 2016

    Meh. It’s not bad, but it’s nothing special. I’ve been waiting for tinashe to drop her “breakout” song, but she’s still bringing these underwhelming songs that won’t last. I wouldn’t say I’m a fan, but I am rooting for her. Come harder tinashe, this ain’t it girl.

  10. Rihboy February 2, 2016

    I’m trying to root for her but this is last years sound. It’s cue. But that’s all I have. She’s playing it safe. But I understand. She hasn’t had her big break. But tracks like this will not help. She needs to get up with some better writers. I think with a massive team she can be the next big thing. She has the vocal capability, she can dance, and she isn’t hard to look at at all.

  11. 4everBrandy_Ci February 2, 2016

    Tinashe knows what she’s doing and I will defend her like I always have in a mature manner without throwing shade at other artists. She doesn’t need to do anything that will take off course with her sound. There are high expectations for this album to be a success and I understand but she knows what’s best for her as an artist. I know this new album will have more people get the opportunity to know who she is as an artist. Until the album arrives we will see what will be the next potential hit single. As of right now let Queen do her thing because regardless she SLAYS.

  13. LB February 2, 2016

  16. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 2, 2016

    This is ANOTHA ONE…Tinashe gon have me a smoked out feind when Joyride comes out. This is that snow-day, stuck in the dorm, blazing all day type vibe.

  17. WINTZ February 2, 2016

    The hive don’t want Tinashe to win! They are praying to THEIR DEVIL for everyone’s downfall in the name of Mrs. Camel.

  18. Ronnie February 2, 2016

    Give her a chance, a Rihanna wasn’t built in a day.

  19. FC/JC February 2, 2016

    Its a NOT for me….

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (#JOYRIDE…. Coming Soon) February 2, 2016

      You’re actually right……. Ci-TRASH is for you 🙂

      • FC/JC February 3, 2016

        To date, Ciara has sold over 25 million records worldwide and earned a Grammy award. Goodies was certified triple platinum by the RIAA, That album alone earned her four nominations at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards, and has outols your faves entire LIFE. The Evolution reached number one in the U.S. and was certified platinum…. Let me know when Tinman can actually chart a Hot 100 single.

  20. WINTZ February 2, 2016

    Oooops ?

  21. XYZ February 3, 2016

    That picture…the desperation Is real

  22. yesterday was Aaliyah 37birthday to the good music February 3, 2016

    Nice song

  23. ASHY February 3, 2016

    I can’t with that single cover.. Truly horrific.

  24. A&R February 3, 2016

    Tin…. Aye baby!!! Dear Sam, eff what you heard, this right here is fire. “Perhaps, she’s content playing in this alt-R&B lane and wants to grow there.”. I said the same exact thing last song and think she should do exactly that! Run away from building a monster house too fast bc.. 1). It rubs the true lovers / supoorters of musical performers the wrong way. 2). It rids the new artist the time it takes to building their performance identity and organics/ true audience. 3). It gives off a sense of entitlement. This song ft Chris brown (instead of player) could have been a door first single. It’s just right with sound, cool/ trend fitting lyrics, edgy, r&b, and movement worthy. Ahhhhh….! I think I may believe in her again. Tin, slow cook, baby. Don’t rush your star power. Do like Matthew said and build your cult like following. Let us see and enjoy your evolution while making sure you put out quality work. Note: Rihanna just dropped an album of mids and I promise I love 95% of the album. I am a lover of dance music and dancers but if you do what is true to you and do it well.. I’ll support. If Tin wants the oody mids but delivers quality I’m sure ppl will hop on board. I honestly think thus will be the wave. All we needed was for a mega start to endorse the trend… Rihanna just did. The moody melodic trenyd (just how it was in the 90s just with r&b) is on the way back. Jam this s***, Tin. Give us a fire video to it. A nice ft w/ a remix would be dope too!
