Tinashe – Energy (ft. Juicy J) [Prod. by Mike Will Made-It]
Tinashe premieres a brand new collaboration with Juicy J, ‘Energy’, in anticipation of her forthcoming album ‘Joyride’.
Although the Chris Brown-assisted club banger ‘Player’ failed to make a dent on the charts, Tinashe is attaining some success with the surprise hit ‘All My Friends’, her collaboration with British production duo Snakehips, which is currently #11 on the UK Singles Chart and continuing to climb. The R&B songstress has now premiered a brand new collaboration with Tennessee rapper Juicy J.
‘Energy’ serves as a taste for Tinashe’s upcoming sophomore album ‘Joyride’, “Gotta feeling inside me, light me up, you give me energy”, she angelically coos on the down-tempo urban number which runs in at a lengthy 5 minutes. Mike WiLL Made-It handles the production incorporating stuttering drums, exotic synths and heavenly harmonies whilst Juicy J provides the guest verse.
The 22-year old recently sat down for an interview with Pitchfork and explained how she thinks ‘Joyride’ will help people understand her, “It will inspire people to learn that I’m not so easily defined. The music can sometimes feel like it lives in multiple genres, and that’s what I really love about it. Hopefully people will understand I’m not just one type of person, artist, genre, any of the above.”
After landing opening spots on two massive tours from Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry, Tinashe has announced her own ‘Joyride World Tour’ with 28-dates spanning Europe, Asia, Australia and North America where she will kick it off in Minneapolis on February 23rd. ‘Joyride’, due later this year, will feature contributions from Max Martin, Metro Boomin, Nic Nac, Boi-1da, and Dev Hynes.
