Tinashe Joins Tinie Tempah In “Text From Your Ex”: Listen
Tinashe connects with Tinie Tempah in “Text From Your Ex” — but she isn’t having it.
To be fair, the party atmosphere of ‘Text From Your Ex” makes it easy to miss what is going on; it sounds inspired by Ghost Town DJs‘ “My Boo,” the 1996 Atlanta R&B bass single that made a surprise comeback last year with the Running Man challenge. Throughout, though, Tinashe is already thinking about her exit strategy, after receiving that text from that ex: “I’m not the kind of girl to snoop / but I had a feeling, too / Now I’m looking for my next boy.”
In short: Tinashe isn’t about to get lost in the music, though you’d be forgiven for doing so.
