Tinashe Sets November Release For New Album; Says She Doesn’t Care About The Charts

Published: Thursday 31st Oct 2019 by Sam

After parting ways with her longtime label and manager, Tinashe is back and doing things her way.

Last week brought with it the debut of new single ‘Die A Little Bit,’ which was paired with a high-octane dance-driven video.

And it looks as though fans won’t be waiting all that long for its parent project.

Details below…

Replying to a fan on Instagram, she confirmed that the “album” (which is said to be titled ‘Songs For You’) will be arriving in November.


As for charting hopes? She says she’s not fussed in the slightest:

Given how commercial success does often have a direct correlation with other lucrative opportunities, we struggle to see how any artist doesn’t care about the charts…to some degree.

But hey, if she’s happy.

Given how much we’ve been spinning ‘Die A Little Bit,’ here’s hoping she’s able to do “her” creatively while also yielding the results on the charts. Because her talent and tenacity are very deserving of reaping all the rewards.

    Of course she doesn’t care about the charts… she never been on them! I wouldn’t care neither 🤷🏽‍♂️

    • Glass house October 31, 2019

      She has with 2 On

  2. XYZ October 31, 2019

    Of course she doesnt care. Thats why she tried so desperately to get a hit. She simply knows that she wont get a hit anyway.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 October 31, 2019

      She is trying to capitalize off of blatantly stealing FA Twigs style and artistry and rushing to do so before the world knows who FA Twigs is. That style of music is believable / sellable / relateable from FA Twigs but NOT fake ass Tinacopy!

      Tinashe tried to copy Rihanna’s style and failed. She tried copying Janet’s ‘Janet’ era style and failed. She better get a real job like on the pole (before she gets too old) because being a music artist is not her strong suit.

      • ??? October 31, 2019

        who is fka twigs?

      • ??? October 31, 2019

        and how many albums has she sold since u wanna talk about tinashe flopping lmfaooooo

      • Paulo October 31, 2019

        YOU don’t even know who F K A is cause you can’t even spell it right. Shut the f*** up Jizzmine

      • Jasmine October 31, 2019

        @??? Tinashe KNOWS who FKA Twigs is. YOU know who FKA Twigs is! I have RECEIPTS.

        RECEIPTS:

        1. In my comment above I purposefully mispelled FKA Twigs name yet you spell ‘FKA Twigs’ name perfectly not once but twice! Thus, YOU know who FKA Twigs is.

        2. In 2016, after several fans called Tinashe out for blatantly copying FKA Twigs’ style, Tinashe responded:
        ‘”I’m sick of y’all pitting all us female artists against each other. You don’t get mad that 75 rappers look exactly alike, same hair/clothes everything, but you want me to be ‘copying’ the other girls so bad. Twigs and I have veryyy different vibes. Even if she were ever to wear a look like this, does that mean no one is ever allowed to wear a similar hairstyle? Because Beyoncé wears leotards a lot, and if I decide to wear a [leotard] one day, am I trying to look like Beyoncé? No!’

        Now SHUT IT with your LYING ASS. Lying that you don’t know somebody when u know everything about them means u are a COWARD. Man Up. Don’t be a punk ass liar mate!

      • Glass house October 31, 2019

        You dummy just proved her point..you’re a loser literally combing the internet for Tinashe quotes lmao

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 October 31, 2019

        1. @??? aka ‘Glass House’ why do u have different troll accounts?

        2. Why am I a “dummy” or a “loser” for answering your question. You need to thank me and apologize for calling me unwarranted names.

        3. Why did you lie that u did not know FA Twigs when CLEARLY you know more about her than even me.

        4. Always remember do not reply to MY comments unless u have RECEIPTS! NO RECEIPTS = DEFEAT!

        5. Thus, I won this nonsensical argument with my easily obtainable receipts. I just googled “Tinashi copying FA Twigs” and numerous articles came up by reputable sources like Tinashe speaking on FA Twigs herself.

        6. You are the loser with no life. I just made an innocent realistic observation on how Tinashe is trying to look and sound like ‘FA Twigs’ only for u to EXPOSE yourself as a deranged, delusional, immature, and quite vile Tinashi STAN that is not open to reasonable conversation about Tinashi. In your twisted eyes, anybody who is.

        7. END of conversation.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 October 31, 2019

        Shut it with your lying ass!

  3. 🍇 The Real Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 October 31, 2019

    I’m glad , artist need to forget about charts & awards and focus on the music and artistry, which the fans fell in love with the first place !!!! Music nowadays is mainly trash because everyone is trying to get that microwave number 1 hit instead of putting out classic solid Singles & albums of timeless music

    • SMH October 31, 2019

      Totally agree. In this age of bullsh*t streaming, chart manipulation by record labels and microwave music, charts are basically irrelevant. Nobody sells albums anymore anyway.

  4. Madame slay October 31, 2019

    Of cause she doesnt care about charts, this is how flops talk.

    She knows she’s gonna flop either way.

    She needs to stop copying fka twigs.

    Fka twigs is an artist, tinashe ur a bubble gum pop star who tried very hard to get a hit but couldn’t.

    • ??? October 31, 2019

      lmaooooo who tf is fka twigs? if tinashe is a flop then wth is she lmfaoooooo

      • Jasmine October 31, 2019

        Tinashe KNOWS who FKA Twigs is. YOU know who FKA Twigs is! I have RECEIPTS.

        RECEIPTS:

        1. In my comment above I purposefully mispelled FKA Twigs name yet you spell ‘FKA Twigs’ name perfectly not once but twice! Thus, YOU know who FKA Twigs is.

      • Clarkson 1 October 31, 2019

        Ur a moron.

        If u think I’m going to abandon my name Clarkson then u must me stupid.

      • Clarkson October 31, 2019

        Then we will create troll accounts for ‘Madame slay’ and whatever other troll accounts u use to spew your wicked venom with. The commenters have complained numerous times about how you have ruined the comments section of this site. U have been given many many chances to improve but you remain spewing evil venom at people who don’t care for your small-minded opinions. Like RuPaul says to the losing queens, ‘Sashay Away!’ You simply are no longer welcome on Grape Juice.

  5. Madame slay October 31, 2019

    Let me guess she dont care about Grammys also.
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Clarkson October 31, 2019

      • Only Facts October 31, 2019

        Is this MF talking to himself? I cannot.

  6. Tyty October 31, 2019

    The charts are a s*** show but in order not to care about them you have to at least have a fan base to tour with. She personality is what rubs people the wrong way me thinks. Not very likeable

  7. Madame slay October 31, 2019

    Begging ur followers on Instagram to ask u about ur new song, how pathetic are u.

    She’s annoying as hell. She acts like the music industry owes her success or something.

    She’s copying fka twigs but what she doesnt know is, fka twigs has a very strong underground fan base and she has serious credibility as an artiste, dancer and creator

    Tinashe u were on dancing with the stars, that has destroyed any credibility u had. ur a joke to every one.

    • ??? October 31, 2019

      lmaoooo fka who?

    • 2bad2bme October 31, 2019

      She thinks just because she is light skin with a nice body pretty face and a cute voice she is automatically supposed to pop off in the game. Sis is not relate-able and doesn’t have that star quality that the people see even in Normani.

    • Clarkson October 31, 2019

      You were instructed to leave this site Clarkson aka Madame slay. Why are you still here loser? You are not welcome on Grape Juice loser. Just leave…

  8. SMH October 31, 2019

    I don’t blame her, the charts are irrelevant trash nowadays, allowing album tracks to chart so these mediocre artists can set bullsh*t chart “records” as if they’re legends or something, and songs can be certified Diamond despite barely even selling 1 million in pure sales. Billboard charts are a joke, and Tinashe is right to not care. Other artists need to follow suit.

  9. Lanafan1 October 31, 2019

    And the charts don’t care about her.

    • Madame slay October 31, 2019

      She ruined slumber party.

      She made this song flop.

      • gina October 31, 2019

        oh please, britney was already flopping long before she worked with tinashe.

      • Clarkson October 31, 2019

        You were instructed to leave this site Clarkson aka Madame slay. Why are you still here loser? You are not welcome on Grape Juice loser. Just leave…..

      • Vulvalicious October 31, 2019

        Britney was not flopping before slumber party! Make Me Ooh charted reasonably she is still selling a lot.
        Tinasha is the flop and always was

  10. YAS BIH October 31, 2019

    She’s right and the only one’s who disagree and think the charts mean anything now are these chart stans/chart chasers just make music for your fans and be happy with what you put out.

    • Dc October 31, 2019

      Charts matter if a label drops yo ass 😂😂

      • YAS BIH November 1, 2019

        That’s different tho she’s an Independent artist I wouldn’t expect a inde artist with a small fanbase to chart, chart high nor sale much or receive rewards like other artists that’s on a label.

  11. Hmmm… October 31, 2019

    I mean, She has no choice but to not care about the charts. It’s not like she could slay the charts if she wanted to and is simply choosing to not worry about them. She tried to and failed and that’s why she doesn’t care.

  12. Jay jay October 31, 2019

    Why are we so fixated on chart position and sales and not the craft itself??

    • A&R October 31, 2019

      Because it’s her job to lol The charts fuel more business opportunities. More business opportunities fuels more 💰. Yes, she can settle for being a struggle or low paid artist but that will impact the quality of her work and quality of her relationship/ reach to her fans. In short, full time music artist can’t afford to say eff that charts. Unless, they’re ok with the consequences.

      • Jay jay October 31, 2019

        I said why are we…we meaning us who comments on here. We meaning the ones who spend their entire day analyzing charts as if they are getting to worry about it.

        Some artists just cares about their craft. Azealia banks doesn’t chart yet she still made over a million last year. That’s a lot of money (more money than we have) and enough to live a good life

      • Glass house October 31, 2019

        She had fans before the lAbel…and her tours of small venues do well

  13. Only Facts October 31, 2019

    She’s about to flop harder than she did last year. I can’t stand when an artist flops on a big label after having the best producers, big budget videos, tons of promo and then they go independent. Newsflash Tinashe, YOU are the problem. It wasn’t RCA, it wasn’t the producers, it was YOU! Same for Ciara. She acted like the labels held her back but look at her now, flopping harder than she did with ‘Jackie’…

    And that’s not shade to Ci because I used to LIVE for her. But her new music is not up to par. She doesn’t want to make the music her fans want. Oh well.

    Flop away you f***ing flop.

    • Madame slay October 31, 2019

      U do realise the same thing that happened to tinashe is already happening to normani

      How many flops.

      • Only Facts October 31, 2019

        Clarkson, GTFOH. Nobody likes you.

      • Madame slay October 31, 2019

        Wanna bet normani gonna change management and labels.

      • Only Facts October 31, 2019

        Clarkson, the only one who’s about to get DROPPED from a label is Camila Cabello. Do you think Epic Records is pleased at her four songs flopping after they put two high budget videos out, paid pop radio to play Liar and Shameless every hour on the hour the day of its release, and then the SNL fiasco (neither Easy or Cry For Me Charted). She is the one running through her budget and not making any traction. You need to be worried about her instead of obsessing over Normani you idiot. Normani’s ONE song that was released TWO months ago still peaked higher than ALL FOUR of Camila’s songs from the last 1.5 months. Get your life together. You’re looking crazy.

    • Jay jay October 31, 2019

      I do think Cici was managed poorly. They didn’t roll out Fantasy Ride and Basic Instinct properly which caused her to be overshadowed by her peers. Plus 2008-2011 was gruesome. Many large Pop players at that time: Gaga, Britney, Bey, Rih, Katy, Kesha, Nicki, and more (ahh a moment) and there was no room for cici. No food left on the table. Also during this time social media was evolving, Stan bases were forming and cici couldn’t grasp any of that.

      To her credit she still managed to get a Hit during her dark times. Fantasy Ride had Never Ever and LSM, Basic Instinct had Ride, Ciara had Body Party and I’m out, Jackie had I Bet, and Beauty Marks had level up.

      No they weren’t worldwide #1 hits but they all made an impact. They charted, got a RIAA plaque, and some got over 100 million views on YouTube. Level Up has over 200 million which I find impressive.

      I think cici should just release EPs going forward. And make a visual for each track

      • Only Facts October 31, 2019

        I agree. It’s clear that full-length albums aren’t going to work for Ciara any longer.

      • Jay jay October 31, 2019

        Right and I’m ok with that. I’d rather have her use all that time and budget on a solid EP with medium to high budget videos. She may see a greater return if she does that. I’ll always have love for cici. She’s so humble and resilient. She has my respect

    • Glass house October 31, 2019

      You’re miserable you’re the flop you’re on here bashing this girl for ??? TGJ doesn’t get you clout buffoon. She’s living her dreams her fans appreciate it so you can carry tf on. Sitting at your boring a** job hating on everybody lmao. I used to like you for getting Clarkson together but nah. You are just as miserable as him.

      • Only Facts October 31, 2019

        Sorry you feel that way. I’ll still pray for you.

  14. A&R October 31, 2019

    The girl’s talent is undeniably PRESENT. She’s one of the few entertainers that put the art first; however, her attitude is still off. Music is a performing art. The selling of music as a commodity is a business. Tinashe seems to still grapple with respecting the business as much as the art. Unless she plans to do music as a side gig and create other hustles, I’m nervous for her. But the universe could align and let her artistry shine so….bright the money/ notoriety just comes as a result.

    But her persona seems to slow that down as well. I’ve been asking for her to interview less and perform more. Her social media presence is amazing too. Instagram is a playground for creative ppl like her. Truly love seeing her artist ig stories and photos. Outside of that.. she may be one of those ppl better enjoyed in an intimate setting.. see Beyonce

    But we shall see.

  15. gina October 31, 2019

    why does ANYBODY care about the charts? Unless your name is taylor swift, nobody sells albums anymore anyway.

    • Madame slay October 31, 2019

      Keep deceiving yourself

      cardi
      Camila
      Ed Sheeran
      Billie eilish
      Post malone
      Sza
      All have platinum albums

  16. Jay jay October 31, 2019

    Tinashe is very underrated. My issue with her is that I don’t have connection with her. I don’t wake up and say to myself “I wonder what Tinashe is doing” “what project is she working on” “what she up to” etc. I think she should find a way to build an audience outside of music.

    • Hmmm… October 31, 2019

      That’s true. People always says she doesn’t have it? But her talent was never the problem. She hasn’t found a way to connect with people. Like what’s her story? What slides she like to do in her free time? What is she passionate about? What really inspires her? People like FKA Twigs, Princess Nokia, etc. have been able to build really core fan bases based off of their personalities alone. It makes the music that much more interesting. Tinashe hasn’t given anybody a reason to really care.

      • Hmmm… October 31, 2019

        My bad. The first question mark is supposed to be a comma. And what *does* she like to do in her free time.

    • Madame slay October 31, 2019

      “I think she should find a way to build an audience outside of music.”

      Gurl she was on dancing with the stars.
      That’s an entire new audience that saw her every week dancing. Over 10 million people tune in every week to watch dancing with the stars.

      Tinashe doesnt have what it takes. No star quality

      She’s annoying.
      She’s stealing fka twigs look, vibe, and sound.

      This is what gonna happen to normani in some few years. Trust me. I’m not hating.

      Normani already having problems. Motivation remix didn’t do anything on iTunes 100. It didnt even trend on Twitter.

      • Jay jay October 31, 2019

        Dancing with the stars is not really building an audience IMO. It’s a fast food tactic to get their name out there but it doesn’t really stick. Name one celebrity who really benefited from dancing with the stars.

        Plus you’re there to dance and compete not really show your life and connect with a viewer.

        I see what you’re saying though

      • Madame slay October 31, 2019

        U do realise there is a behind the scenes on dancing with the stars where they show u learning the dance moves and u talking about ur life , struggles, urself, ups and downs, career etc

        10+ million people watch this show every week. And fans of the show discuss about the show, the scores who went home etc thru out the week.

      • Clarkson October 31, 2019

        You dumba**. Dancing with the stars hasn’t gotten 10 million viewers in YEARS! It averages 5-6 million weekly. Spreading lies.

  17. FKA TWIGS October 31, 2019

    Of course a one hit wonder who hasn’t gotten a hit since 2014 wouldn’t “care” about the charts.

    • Glass house October 31, 2019

      You keep commenting even switching your name to fka twigs..something she wouldn’t bash anybody for is charts. Only simple minded people care about charts…you don’t even know how the behind the scenes works in industry. FKA isn’t eating up the charts she’s also doing small venues just like Tinashe

    • 🍇 The Real Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 October 31, 2019

      Exactly this generation is doomed and someone will beat old town roads record next year just watch

  18. Keith October 31, 2019

    I am very interested to see what Tinashe is doing musically. Her mixtapes were straight fire, it was the major label stuff that made her situation murky. I really don’t get the strong dislike for her in these comment streets…

  19. Liam October 31, 2019

    I’m glad she’s back to her classic style of music with a twist…I’m ready she always delivers and she will do fine

  20. Ahmed a November 1, 2019

    These comments are trash. Tinashe always brings something new and yet people choose to give her the side like all music charting isn’t the same tune talking about the same trash deteriorating our society. I can’t wait to see what independents tinashe do because all her released projects are fire. Do your research #DieALittleBit #SongsForYou

  21. Ahmed a November 1, 2019

    These comments are trash. Tinashe always brings something new and yet people choose to give her the sideeye like all the music charting isn’t the same tune talking about the same trash deteriorating our society. I can’t wait to see what independents tinashe does next because all her self-released projects are fire. Do your research #DieALittleBit #SongsForYou
