Tinashe has a guy in her crosshairs on “Bullet,” the latest Joyride track to surface.
Tinashe is currently performing on the Joyride tour, yet hasn’t released the album. As we journey through 2016, each song off the record is making an early debut onto the Internet. Several weeks ago, Tinashe suffered a huge setback when five songs, presumably from the new album, titled “Same Old Me,” “Pour Your Love On Me,” “No To Me,” “Just A Taste” and “April Moon,” leaked. She kept things moving, performing her latest official release, “Ride Of Your Life” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and recording a cover of Tom Tom Club’s “Genius of Love” for a new Target TV spot.
Today, Tinashe faces another leak, this time for a song titled “Bullet.” In it, the “2 On” singer croons “this bullet got your name on it” over a minimal, mid-tempo beat. Tinashe may have dropped the song herself. Last year, she was responsible for the “Party Favors” release.
“I basically leaked the song. I wasn’t supposed to put it out,” she said at the time. “But I knew if I didn’t just put something out, I ran the risk of continuing to push back my singles and my whole process. I’ve got the songs, I need to put them out, I need people to hear them. I was just like, ‘F**k it.”
