Tinashe fans have endured quite a few pushbacks for her next album, Joyride, and today the singer has opened up to GQ Style about how the album is constantly getting refined. Now it’s slated for March, and we did get that Nightride, but frankly, that’s not the aspect of this GQ Style feature that’s going to catch anyone’s attention.
Instead, the fact that Tinashe is working with alleged predator Terry Richardson on a photo shoot where she’s grabbing Travis Scott by the crotch will certainly be the focus. Considering Tinashe has also had no qualms about working with R. Kelly and Chris Brown in the past, the Richardson thing is not a big surprise. Head over to British GQ Style‘s preview of the shoot to check out the picture, and read clips from the interview below.
She said that fans should actually be excited about the album delay, because the record is always improving:
“The good thing that fans should be excited about is that the album is just getting better and better. It’s not sitting in limbo, it’s being improved upon and growing all the time. Even since a year ago, I feel like I’ve changed a lot. I’m a 24-year-old woman, and when you’re my age, you can grow a lot in a year. Even musically and creatively, I’m inspired by new things. The energy shifts. It’s an evolution, but it’s continuing to get more exciting, more relevant, and just better. I hope everyone is patient with me, but when it does drop, it’s going to be fucking worth it.”
And she spoke on her many different collaborators, and how she thrives on diversity:
“I will do a collaboration with Britney Spears, and fucking die over it, and then at the same time I’ll be working with someone like Metro Boomin. Or I’ll be over here in the studio working with KDA. Recently I have done even more out-of-the-box stuff, like I collaborated with Enrique Iglesias. So, I don’t think I really need to bend to any of the ideas that people have about me.”
