Tinashe took time out of her super busy schedule to talk with Harpers Bazaar to discuss her album Joyride and the process of finally having the album come to be.
The songstress has had to a rather long journey with this album. After hitting detour to detour, it seems as if she never could catch a break. At one point, Tinashe said that she felt her label prioritized Zayn Malik’s solo album more than they cared for her album. Tinashe felt the need to take things to her own hands by ending up leaking her song Party Favors just for the sake of having something of hers out to keep her name out there. In at one point, the singer had to buy back her album-titled track Joyride from Rihanna.
But now with the album out, Tinashe feels like she finally has full control with her music. “I just really felt like I took control and regained my confidence and mastered my own business, steered my own ship and was out here having fun every day, just having good energy around me,” Tinashe explained.
