Rising R&B star Tinashe has teamed with Juicy J and hitmaker Mike Will Made It for a sultry new cut, “Energy.”

Over deft trap percussion, hypnotic synth lines and a warbling vocal loop, Tinashe unspools in her crystalline voice all the enticing possibilities that arise when the games between two people finally end.

Juicy J too doesn’t tiptoe around the matter at hand, delivering another distinctive verse that’s as punchy and clever as it is completely goofy: “We doing jumping jacks, we doing yoga / She exercise, she eat yogurt,” he spits. “She read books and watch Oprah / I let her ride me, I’m her chauffeur.”

It’s unclear if “Energy” will appear on Tinashe’s upcoming second LP, Joyride, which has yet to be given a release date or an official track list. The singer, however, has lined up another world tour, which begins February 28th in Minneapolis and finds her criss-crossing North America and Europe throughout the spring.

Joyride will follow Tinashe’s 2014 debut, Aquarius, as well as a seven-track mixtape, Amethyst, which arrived last March. Along with Mike Will Made It, the new LP reportedly boasts contributions from super producer Max Martin, Boi-1da and Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes.

“I have so many sides to me and things that I want to represent,” she told Rolling Stone. “Working with all of those producers is a search to be versatile and being versatile. It’s always interesting navigating working with all these very different producers — you have to learn how to work with each of them individually, but that’s part of the fun and the process of recording.”
