The album is a melodic overview of Tinashe's discography, from her pop-influenced singles to the moodiness of previous mixtapes like Nightride and Amethyst all while spotlighting her production and song-writing talent. Where title track Joyride introduces the album with fervour and hunger, the Little Dragon assisted Stuck With Me breaks in between, keeping the listener guessing on what is next to come. Frequently labelled as a triple-threat, the young 25 year old syncs her lyrics with some of the industry's biggest stars to make Joyride the total package… and one of her most exciting bodies of work to date. Incredibly, Joyride debuted at #9 on the Australian iTunes Album Chart and has landed in top spot locally on the iTunes R&B/Soul Album Chart.
Co-mingling seductive R&B, edgy pop, and a nocturnal electronic sensibility, Los Angeles, CA based Tinashe emerged as a fascinating, focused, and fiery outlier in 2014 with her full-length debut AQUARIUS. Powered by the double-platinum smash 2 On featuring ScHoolboy Q, the album crashed the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200 upon arrival before popping up on year end lists by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Stereogum, The Guardian, Vulture, and so many more. On our local shores, Tinashe's previous single, Player, is certified Gold, whilst singles, 2 On and All Hands On Deck, have impressively achieved certified Platinum in Australia.
Between touring alongside everyone from Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj to Maroon 5, she revved up the official mixtape Nightride. Rolling Stone and Fuse, both proclaimed it among the 20 Best R&B Albums of 2016. Along the way, Tinashe has graced the covers of Complex, V, Dazed, and Nylon in addition to turning up with unforgettable performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tinashe's rise to conquer the industry has been limitless and an exciting one. Not bound by anyone's box or idea of who/what Tinashe means, she embraces the grey areas, and continue to prepare the next chapter of her story.
