A year after releasing her debut album Aquarius, Tinashe is readying the follow-up Joyride. Today the R&B star dropped the first single and her personal favourite from the upcoming project entitled ‘Party Favors’ featuring Young Thug. ‘Party Favors‘ is a good follow up from what we have come to expect from Tinashe, featuring a moody, but very pulverizing instrumental reminiscent of ‘Cold Sweat‘, before surprising with a sticky turnaround on the hook that hints at the big melodies we’re likely to hear on the rest of the project. Young Thug only features very briefly but makes an impact with his auto-tuned verse.
The singer has yet to announce a release date for Joyride , but she recently told Rolling Stonethat it’ll feature production from Dev Hynes, Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Hit-Boy, and more. “A big part of it was the focus going into it, which was that we weren’t going to make a lot of songs, and it wasn’t going to be so experimental,”Tinashe said in her interview. “We definitely knew what we wanted going in, and we were a lot more efficient in achieving it. I have so much other stuff going on that we really didn’t have any other options!”
