Since blazing onto the mainstream scene in 2014 with ‘2 On,’ Tinashe has established herself as one of R&B’s most resilient talents.
Indeed, the star has managed to consistently feed fans while navigating the tallest of odds – including dismal delays and music industry politics.
Reflecting on her journey, the performer mused on the peaks and troughs of her roller coaster journey.
See what she had to say below…
Taking to Instagram, the 28-year-old candidly said “some days I feel so powerful. Some days I ruminate wondering where it all went wrong?”
Her full post read:
“Times are weird…. I never imagined it would all happen the way that it has. The state of the world, growing up, navigating the music industry as an independent artist… idk some days I feel so powerful and innovative and like I’m really changing the world the way I used to believe I could .
Some days I ruminate wondering where it all went wrong? I’m both excited and trepidatious when I think about the future. The world is changing so fast— and yet I’m still the same. But I’m totally different . Idk .
My ego death began a few years ago. I tend to put my WHOLE heart in things. Regardless of how that is perceived, regardless of the 3D circumstances surrounding me, art remains the answer. ³³³”
It goes without saying that the music industry is not for the faint of heart – both on the major label and indie paths.
Kudos to Tinashe for her tenacity. Because regardless of whether she touches the top of a chart in the future, she’s built and sustained a fanbase that will ensure there will always be a stage for her to perform on and an audience there to cheer her on.
Tinashe’s latest album ‘333’ is out now.
