Ooh la la. Tinashe brings “No Drama” to morning television with a special performance of the Offset-assisted banger on “Good Morning America.”
Dressed in a half black and half shimmering two-piece suit, the R&B siren delivered a rousing rendition of her pop and hip-hop fusion. Offset wasn’t there, so Tinashe made up for his absence with a choreographed dance breakdown.
“No Drama” is one of three singles off Joyride. Recently, Tinashe also released “Me So Bad” with French Montana and Ty Dolla $ign as well as “Faded Love” with Future. Now, she is one week away from the LP’s long-awaited and often-delayed release.
“There were a lot of setbacks,” she recently told Vulture. “I made the mistake of even talking about the project too soon. When I look back on the entire journey of it, I’m very thankful for the time that it did take. It pushed me to create the version of the album that is coming out now. It was important that it ended up taking as long as it did.”
Tinashe went on to say that she made three versions of the album and around 200 songs, including the title track, which almost went to Rihanna. “We bought it back,” she said. “It’s kind of crazy and I’m not even 100 percent sure what happened. We created the track, I wanted it for my project, then all of a sudden I found out — I was told — that she had purchased the whole concept and beat for her project [Anti]. Eventually, when that didn’t come out on her project, I was like, ‘Yup … still want it!’ I named my album after it. A couple other songs that I toured when I did my brief version of ‘The Joyride Tour’ will be on it. Most of the rest of the album was created relatively recently.”
Joyride is out next Friday (April 13).
