Rap-Up TV: Tinashe Talks Breakout Year, Sophomore Album

Tinashe has had an incredible year. The “2 On” singer released her debut album Aquarius in October and scored a breakout hit with her ScHoolboy Q-assisted single, but the highlight was traveling the world.

“I went all over Europe. I went to Abu Dhabi. To be able to go that far away from home and have fans, it’s crazy,” she told Rap-Up TV at Cali Christmas. “It’s really humbling.”

Once she wraps the U.S. leg of her “Aquarius Tour,” she will head back into the studio in January to record her sophomore album. “I have songs that are in the works,” she said. “I’m always being creative and thinking about what I’m gonna do next.”

She hopes to reunite with DJ Mustard, Boi-1da, Mike WiLL Made-It, and Stargate, who all produced for Aquarius, and bring in some new producers.

Earlier this month, another DJ Mustard-produced song called “Fuckin Wit Me” leaked. It was recorded for her album, but didn’t make the cut. However, it may see an official release in the future.
