Tinashe released a sexual visual for “Bet/Feels Like Vegas” this week. Before it concluded, a written message pops up that says, “End of Era I,” which alludes to closing the chapter of her first album, Aquarius.
In another video trailer Tinashe released, she details the beginnings of a new era. It marks her announcement of Joyride, her sophomore effort due out this fall.
When speaking to Rolling Stone, she says the title comes from her crazy journey so far. “I always had it in the back of my head, but it started to become more and more relevant to my current state of my career,” she says. “With all this traveling I've done this past year and everything I've gone through, it just really feels like an adventure, a journey, a ride.”
Tinashe confirms that she’s working with Max Martin, Dev Hynes and Boi-1da. The Toronto producer worked with Tinashe on a song called “Party Favors,” which should be releasing in the next week or so. She says on recording the song with him: “There was so much energy in the room, and everybody thought it was so much fun. Those are always really special moments: when everyone in the studio can tell that you're coming up with something really special.”
