Report: Tinashe Signs With Roc Nation

Published: Thursday 12th Sep 2019 by Sam

With Tinashe reportedly severing ties with her longtime label and management earlier this year, the R&B belle appears to be lining up the key players for her comeback.

See what we mean below…

In an interview with HHNM, Hitmaka (who was formerly known as Yung Berg) opened up about his work with the singer. During the segment, he made an interesting revelation; he shared that Tinashe has signed with Roc Nation:

“I actually spoke to her just recently. She left RCA Records, I believe she’s managed by Roc Nation now. She reached out to me about the record. That was a project we did called Nashe. It was a lot of fun doing that because we really went into the studio for a week and banged out like 15 records that are just amazing. I’m excited for everybody to hear the records. You know we had a little bit of a start and stop with her switching labels but hopefully y’all will get to hear the music soon.”

The Roc is a full service company with multiple arms, hence it’s important to note that Hitmaka is referring to Nashe signing with them for management (rather than to their label).

With a roster that includes Rihanna, Mariah Carey, and Big Sean, Roc Nation seems more than equipped to steer the talented star to higher heights.

That said, any such reintroduction to the music market would need to see Tinashe paired with an equally capable label.

All involved are then tasked with establishing a laser focused blueprint for the artist she’s going to be. Because the “I sound like this today and like that tomorrow” approach from yesteryear clearly did not work.

Your thoughts?

    Ohh no I don’t see this working in her favor. Just look what they did to Rita Ora. She should have went independent.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 September 12, 2019

      Shes not big enough to go independent. Her biggest problem is that she cannot sing and when you are black you have to be a triple threat. She looks cute and she can dance but she lacks voice. Same goes for Normani. I like them both but unless they can find the right team of producers who can make their voices sound seductive, sexxy, and magnetic like Janet and Ashanti did in their primes i dont see it for Tinashe and Normani.

      Janet & Jimmy Jam – Terry Lewis / Teddy Riley. Ashanti & Irv Gotti.

      Tinashe & ?
      Normani & ? (Maybe Pharrell)

  2. I hate black n whyte all of you. Y’all just not s*** September 12, 2019

    She sàid blacks don’t buy records,… And blacks jealous of her cuz she bi racial…… when she looks 100-% black…and they buy Rihanna who has green eyes.. when they have brown eyes. Signing with roc is an okay move but watch ya mouth b****

    • LOL September 12, 2019

      Did she really say that? Mariah Carey is bi-racial and black people have supported her legendary career since the first note of Vision Of Love. Sit down Tinashe. Your albums didn’t sell because you are nothing new. You are not Aaliyah. ;p

      • #TeamTinashe Stan September 12, 2019

        She never said she wanted to be Aaliyah, lol.
        Commenter clearly can’t read which is why you settle in the dust underneath yo momma in her basement.

        Hold several toilet bowl seats, thanks! 😊
        Ps dont reply because I aint coming back to this post lol.

      • gina September 12, 2019

        She never said that.

  3. Meme September 12, 2019

    I’m afraid a label can’t save her. Tinashe had everything from budget for countless videos, the best producers and features, endless promo.

    Tinashe should be making the caliber artistry of FKA Twigs. To me, that’s the lane she should had been directed in. Instead they tried to make her mainstream and that ain’t it. FKA isn’t me a stream but she has a cult following and her underground realm adds to her appeal.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan September 12, 2019

      You make it seem like she had it well at RCA.
      They stifled her art to release Pop music after releasing a ALT-R&B album which lead to confusion from fanbase. She leaked Party Favors only because they wanted to push Player.

      Secondly, releasing good budgeted music videos without having promo on radio, spots in commercial ads/soundtracks isn’t going to do anything.
      Joyride singles were barely pushed on urban radio too

    • Clarkson September 12, 2019

      Fka twigs is talented. Tinashe is not

      Fka twigs doesnt want to be famous, tinashe wants to be famous so bad. Shes thirsty for fame.

      Fka twigs knows how to write and produce, tinashe cant write a hit to save her life.

      Going on dancing with the stars destroyed her credibility, she is done.

      • Keith September 12, 2019

        @Clarkson: I love Twigs (i buy her records), but you have got to be crazy if you think she is in the same league as either a singer or songwriter with Tinashe. Yes, Twigs is a visual innovator and displays a phenomenal athleticism with her dancing. She has that over Tinashe. Yes, Twigs seems to like her underground status but who realistically gets into the game to be a cult favorite forever? Of course, Tinashe wants to be famous. It’s how she handles it that determines how things play out.

      • Clarkson September 12, 2019


        There are so many musicians who are content with being underground and are happy with their small but loyal following/ fan base.

        There are so many musicians who dont wanna be mainstream at all. Being a celebrity is the last thing on their mind. Getting a radio hit is the last thing on their mind.

        Fka twigs blows tinashe out of the park with her vocals and song writing.
        Two weeks
        In time, I’m your doll
        Figure 8

        Tinashe was a fluke. She did a collaboration with britney and she still flopped. she’s hungry for fame and it’s the ones that are hungry for fame that never get it.

    • Keith September 12, 2019

      @Meme: I agree that she and Twigs should be in the same lane. Tinashe is very talented, she needs a label with faith in her original voice…we will see.

  4. #TeamTinashe Stan September 12, 2019

    Its most likely management.
    She did an interview in Japan saying she is working on her label imprint right now.

    Boss moves from Tee once again as she started her career being a DIY artist through producing/writing in her bedroom, directed & edited her music videos and etc.

    Not to sure if Roc Nation is good at breaking acts. Imo

  5. Only Facts September 12, 2019

    LOL! Rita Ora 2.0 here we go. Poor thing

  6. Clarkson September 12, 2019

    I’m sorry it will never happen for this girl

    2 on, was a fluke, she got lucky.

    Look at her, is there anything special about her? NO

    She’s the light skin normani. Lol

    • #TeamTinashe Stan September 12, 2019

      Yes, you’re still talking about her after that “fluke” tho.
      Lol hehe..

      • Clarkson September 12, 2019

        See still talk about vanilla ice today even tho he is flops.

        People talking about u dont make u less of a flop.

    • 2bad2bme September 12, 2019

      Why you keep bringing up Normani? It’s some racist hating gays on this site now.

      • Daisy September 12, 2019

        @Clarkson Vanilla Ice is not a flop, hun. His debut album sold millions of records way more than Tinashe

  7. Clarkson September 12, 2019

    Come to think of it, normani and tinashe were on dancing with the stars. Lol two flops

    Which respectable musician starts their career on dancing with the stars?

    Dancing with the has beens. Lol

    • Only Facts September 12, 2019

      It’s not where you start, it’s where you end. Normani and Tinashe and even Ally Brooke may be starting their solo careers on DWTS (we Tinashe isn’t exactly starting but), it’s only a bad look if you are hugely popular and THEN go to DWTS. Camila will be on the final season in about 10 years…probably dancing to her one hit, “Havana”. What goes up must come down. 😇

      • Clarkson September 12, 2019

        U wish

        Normani was on dancing with the stars. No respected musician starts their career on that show.

        And u guys love to hype normani and call her a good dancer, so why didnt she win dancing with the stars, a dancing competition. She placed 3rd. Lol a laughable flop

        Camila with her 1.2 billion streams and 2 number 1 songs will never be a contestant on that show.

        When Normani dirst album flops , she will end up on rnb Divas or love and hip hop that’s if she’s lucky

      • gina September 12, 2019

        u so mad at normani because camila’s solo singles flopped hard. thats not normani’s fault.

    • Oh plz September 12, 2019

      You’re QUITE the obsessed MF, aren’t you? Why don’t you just shut the f*** up and be QUIET. Your rants about our black beauty Normani are tired.

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate September 12, 2019

        Right???? It has some sort of racially charged vendetta against Normani and takes every opportunity to show us how ugly, bitter and busted it is inside. Mental Health is no joke people, Clarkson be in here waving it‘s illness in people’s faces like a stripper waving her na na to her clients to make it rain SMH 🤦🏾‍♂️

  8. I love big black c** September 12, 2019

    Then she gotta be jay-Z little side ho, just like Rihanna, if not she will end up like teairra mari, Karina Pasian or Amerie

  9. BlueDiamonds September 12, 2019

    Roc Nation does nothing for its artists. Tinashe is a one hit wonder from 2014. The GP moved on and so should she!

  10. High Price September 12, 2019

    Damn. Tinashe is a true fighter. The Joyride album was ok. It wasn’t as good as aquarius though. I really don’t know what to say for her anymore. She really has had a lot of backing from multiple positions. I will say… …. it seems like she’s inconsistent with sticking to a single. She’s had some very good singles in the past and it seem like if it didn’t chart, she just was on to the next project like asap! Now idk if that’s her fault or her teams fault. But in my theory, it’s still possible to WORK a single. She releases a single and or video, and then that’s it. Or she’ll get ghost. A lot of inconsistencies in her career is part of the fail imo. But I’m still checking for her. She makes good music, it’s just not getting out there for some reason. The masses is forced music all the time, I don’t see why she can’t do it.

  11. I hate black n whyte all of you. Y’all just not s*** September 12, 2019

    Tinnashe last album cover was bad, who made it black and white you are too pretty… the blonde wig in no drama… horrible. You should get braids like Alicia keys….like.. before she started smoking crack and no wearing make up…like people don’t know she is on drugs….wear conrows like Beyonce or keys…..nashe

  12. Sweetnothings78 September 12, 2019

    Take her back to her ‘2 on’ days where she kicked off in style. Throw in some hands on deck and take some shape from there!
    They did it with Rihanna. Yet Tinashe can sing so good luck to her.
