Tinashe’s Joyride era is heating up, thanks to the latest track she’s previewed off the album, “Ride of Your Life.” Listen to the R&B singer team up with 22-year-old producer and frequent Future collaborator Metro Boomin below.
The sexy track is a poppier take on Metro Boomin’s brand of trap and hip-hop. Like recent songs “Energy” and “Party Favors,” Tinashe slows things down, going for a loungier, sexier club R&B sound than the more high-energy dance singles of her 2014 debut LP Aquarius like “2 On” and “All Hands on Deck.”
While an official release date for the album has not been announced, the singer has plotted her second headlining tour. Launching at the end of February, she’ll be joined by Ryan Hemsworth and Snakehips. She collaborated with the latter on the song “All My Friends,” which also features Chance the Rapper.
Tinashe first previewed Joyride back in September after wrapping up her time on Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint tour. The singer revealed to Rolling Stone that she had worked with writers and producers Dev Hynes, Dr. Luke and Boi-1da on the new material. “I have so many sides to me and things that I want to represent,” she said about the diverse list of collaborators. “Working with all of those producers is a search to be versatile and being versatile.”
