Tinashe announces new album

Tinashe may have wrapped up the promo and visuals for Aquarius with last night’s double video for “Bet / Feels Like Vegas” and follows that up today with the announcement of album #2 — JOYRIDE.

Producers said to have contributed: Hit-Boy, Boi-1da, Max Martin, and Dr. Luke. Watch the throwback 70s grain in the new trailer above. Hot beat so far too.

(Forgot to mention in the video post last night that the 720p60f setting is so smooth. I love seeing that for bball highlights, it worked well for Tinashe, and I hope it becomes the norm.)

Usher f/ Juicy J “I Don’t Mind”

Usher’s new single features a new verse from Juicy J — the go-to rapper right now for singers, amirite? It’s starting to get redundant, but at least “I Don’t Mind” is a little different from Usher, who comforts his lady to get the money how she can, as long as she comes home. Not sure I can relate here, but it’s set to a soft, bouncy Dr. Luke and Cirkut production. Listen below.

Ne-Yo f/ Juicy J “She Knows”

Ne-Yo’s new attempt at a top 10 single enlists the help of the buzzing Juicy J for “She Knows” — a sexually charged record with a catchy beat from Dr. Luke. It’s really addicting and is a highlight of the track, along with Ne-Yo’s vocals. This one definitely has potential given all of the above so expect to see a video for this soon and hear it all over your radios. Off Ne-Yo’s TBD titled upcoming album.

Nicki Minaj “Pills N Potions”

As expected, here’s Nicki Minaj‘s new single — the first of the upcoming album, The Pinkprint — “Pills N Potions”. It’s produced by Dr. Luke and co-written by Ester Dean as Nicki sings and raps a reflection on a breakup and taking the high road to move on. Hey, I think the message is one that’s positive and one that’ll definitely affect her legions of fans accordingly. This isn’t a song for us fellas to bump on repeat, but I can appreciate it for sure.

Also below, Nicki Minaj was on The Breakfast Club this morning to introduce the new single, the album, talk her new look, and much more. Listen to that below.
