Tinashe’s Fierce Offset-Featuring ‘No Drama’ Video Sets Her 2018 Intention

Last week Tinashe announced three new singles for the New Year. Today (January 18) she dropped “No Drama,” a streamlined R&B-rap hybrid produced by Stargate, along with its fierce, choreography-heavy video. Throughout, Tinashe sounds nonchalant, channeling Destiny’s Child (“I need a soldier”) and Mean Girls (“You can’t sit with us”) to explain exactly who she allows in her circle.

Leading up to its release, the title “No Drama” sounded like a fitting mantra, as if Tinashe was setting her intentions for 2018. Last year she was as productive as ever with her mixtape Nightride. But she was also clearly frustrated with navigating the music industry while transitioning from underground R&B curio to major label signee. Her long-teased album Joyride also never arrived.

Unfortunately, Offset also appears in “No Drama.” Yes, he is featured off the strength of his, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage’s Without Warning and with Migos’ Culture 2 out next week. But Offset also just came under fire for a line she spits in YFN Lucci’s “Boss Life” (“Pinky ring crystal clear, 40K spent on a private Lear / 60k solitaire / I cannot vibe with queers”). His apology on social media wasn’t convincing, either.

Will “No Drama” be enough for Tinashe to gain some much-needed career momentum this year? Judge for yourself by listening up top.
