Oftentimes the Pop landscape can be potently political. Indeed, it’s common-practice for acts to avoid collaborations with “rivals” and rarely acknowledge each other’s releases.
Tinashe ditches that “rulebook” with a rousing rendition of Rihanna‘s ‘Sex With Me.’
The newcomer’s cover of the ‘ANTI’ album track arrives ahead of the release of her own sophomore effort ‘Joyride.’
How did she fare with the racy cut? Listen below and let us know…
Granted the original song skews a tad overrated, this was a commendable effort.
More broadly, it’s smart of Tinashe to hop on a track of an act whose audience she can borrow from. Additionally, in saluting Rih, it helps dispel any manufactured rivalry folk may try and cook up later down the line.
That said, we’re more buzzed to hear Tinashe’s own material.
‘Joyride’ is supposedly set for an October release. But given that lead single ‘Superlove’ isn’t catching on as intended, we imagine there may be more waiting yet.
