Tinashe Enlists Chris Brown for ‘Player’ Collaboration

Tinashe and Chris Brown are joining forces for a brand new collaboration.

During an interview with Travis Mills on Beats 1, Tinashe opened up about the song, entitled “Player,” which is set to appear on her upcoming album Joyride. “I’ve always kinda wanted to do a song with [Chris],” she said. “Obviously, he’s one of the best entertainers of our generation… It’s just exciting to be able to work with him.”

Joyride features the Young Thug-assisted single “Party Favors,” plus contributions from Dr. Luke, Hit-Boy, Travi$ Scott, Nic Nac, and Dev Hynes.

“It’s still top secret. I’m excited,” gushed Tinashe. “This time around it was fun because it’s not the same pressure as making your first album. I kind of already set the tone, set the stage, so now you can just progress and be a little bit more creative, so that’s what I’m doing this album. I’m excited about it.”

She’s most excited about collaborating with producer Max Martin, known for his work with The Weeknd and Taylor Swift. “He’s one of my favorites. He’s like a legend,” she said. “He really focuses and really concentrates on the melodies.”

Before her sophomore set drops in November, Tinashe will head to South America with Katy Perry on her “Prismatic World Tour,” beginning Sept. 29.
