Chris Brown isn’t the most popular person on Facebook in Australia right now but we’re going to ignore that for a second because we want to pay Tinashe her dues. She’s collaborated with Brown for Player – the second track to be lifted from her forthcoming second album. This one is far more accessible than its predecessor Party Favours balancing between a dance and R&B beat. It’s clear she’s out for a hit with this one and she may just get it because it’s pretty damn good.
She’s one of the most interesting figures in R&B right now and we reckon this might be just the track she needs to catch onto Australian airwaves.
Can we also just ask quickly if there’s anyone who hasn’t collaborated with Chris Brown of late? From Rita Ora to Pia Mia it feels like he’s literally highjacked the airwaves. If we’re going to block him from coming to the country maybe we should also block him from the airwaves. A concert is one night but you hear this stuff on the radio on the daily.
Anyway, this is Tinashe’s moment. Well done, this is a banger.
