Tinashe cuts a striking figure a-front of NYLON magazine’s October issue.
The month is symbolic in that it’ll bring with it the release of the starlet’s sophomore album ‘Joyride.’ This despite the underperformance of its latest lead single ‘Superlove.’
Inside her feature, it’s revealed that the singer’s team are still pinning down a definitive date for the LP, although the frame remains within the length and breadth of next month.
Time will tell how that goes.
For now, NYLON nabbed a number of interesting quotes and non-verbal articulations.
See what we mean below…
Speaking on why she doesn’t want to leak tracks, she offered…
“But how is that going to help me? It’s just going to come out and then it’s gone, and then I don’t have the support. No one’s going to be booking me for TV performances, [the label is] certainly not going to help me with my next one,” she says with a chuckle, possibly trying to downplay her exasperation over the delay.
She added on the downside of fame…
“I’ve always been so confident in myself, but there’s so much doubt now in my mind because of what I’ve gone through—so many setbacks, push-backs, album delays,” she says. “It’s just kind of shaken my belief system. But I still believe, at the end of the day, I’m going to find some way to succeed and be happy. So yes, absolutely. This year is going to be a great year.”
The feature adds that the 23-year-old didn’t want the Chris Brown assisted ‘Player’ – which will now not appear on the album – to be available as a duet exclusively. She adamantly pushed through the idea of a solo rendition being serviced. For what it’s worth, the song only managed a #3 peak on the Billboard Bubbling Under Chart and Brown subsequently took aim at Tinashe on social media after she unfollowed him.
In other ‘Joyride’ news, confirmed track titles now include ‘Stay The Night’ and ‘Contest,’ both of which join ‘Superlove’ and the recently released ‘Company.’
