For R&B starlet Tinashe, it’s a case of New Year new horizons.
Because, she’s officially no longer on the RCA Records roster.
The singer had been signed to the Sony Music imprint since 2012 and made a splash into mass consciousness with club jam ‘2 On’ in 2014.
Excitement about her potential remained in the years after, but she never quite managed to catch the same wave as her launch.
There also seemed to be ample confusion about the type of act she was being positioned as. Taking on an almost chameleon-like approach, she’d slide from Pop girl (‘Superlove,’ ‘Slumber Party,’ ‘Flame’) to mixtape maven, to Trap chanteuse (‘Party Favors,’ ‘No Drama’).
And while Nashe chalked it to “not wanting to be boxed in as an artist,” many interpreted it as being a musical manifestation of conflict at a higher level. Something she herself alluded to on several occasions.
Well, it seems said differences have reached their appex. Because as of today, the singer has been formally removed from the artist section RCA site.
It remains to be seen what the star’s next business move will be (indie vs major?), but in the here and now she’s turning her attention to TV. As reported, she’s starring in FOX‘s upcoming revival of ‘RENT’ – which airs January 27th.
