Tinashe Is A “Player” With Chris Brown: Listen To The Slinky ‘Joyride’ Single

Tinashe‘s sophomore album era is officially upon us! After dropping the “Bet/”Feels Like Vegas” video, a.k.a. the final chapter of Aquariusthe singer is now giving fans musical tastes of what’s to come. Her latest is a collaboration with R&B bad boy — Chris Brown.

While smash hit “2 On” had a strictly urban feel, Tinashe decided to insert more pop vibes for her next album’s lead single. The LULOU and Alex Purple-produced mid-tempo dance track (they also had a hand in co-writing) increasingly builds into a rushing wave of glass-like synths — a smart strategy that will keep people on the club floor. Brown wraps up the slinky tune with his explicit and raunchy verse.

“Player” was co-written by Tinashe, Chloe Angelides (the lady behind Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint “Get On Your Knees” collaboration with Ariana Grande), Lukas “Lulou” Loules (Carly Rae Jepsen) and Alexander “Alex Purple” Kronlund (Demi Lovato).

Along with this new track, Tinashe previously released a teaser trailer for her upcoming Joyride album (which may drop in November) and also unveiled buzz track “Party Favors” with Young Thug last month. Get into “Player” below.

There is also a non-Chris Brown version, if you’re not a fan of the singer.
