But where's Joyride though?

While Tinashe continues work on her forthcoming album, which will come out when it comes out at this point, she's busy crafting songs for her musical peers.

The "SuperLove" singer recently put forth a mixtape titled Nightride to appease her fanbase who have impatiently waited for the new record to drop.

Tinashe has remained an active voice in music anyhow. She's collaborated with a heap of artists in the last year, including "Player" with Chris Brown (which she claims was forced by her label), Far East Movement on "Freal Love," DaVido on "How Long," KDA on "Just Say" and a newly-recorded feature for a remix of Britney Spears's "Slumber Party."

She also has a song with Diplo / Major Lazer in the works, and if it's up to her, one with Ariana Grande.

Adding to the star-studded list is Katy Perry. According to a Tinashe fan account on Twitter, the "SuperLove" singer penned a song titled "Weak" for Perry's upcoming studio album. They also claim Rudimental, who’s produced songs for Ed Sheeran, John Newman, MNEK, Emeli Sandé and more, is behind "Weak."


The two first met when Tinashe opened up for the "Roar" singer on tour.

“I’m working with a lot of unexpected writers and producers and … that’s bringing out a lot of different things sonically," Perry said earlier this year. "Even when I was working with my go-to producers, I’d always push them to play me a beat that was reserved for Three 6 Mafia or something like that… I know exactly how to write a lyric over that because my strengths are melody and lyrics. I’m putting myself in unexpected situations and that is breeding a lot of new color.”

In August, Perry told Ryan Seacrest she's "in the thick" of recording.

"I'm just taking some chances. I'm just having a lot of fun, but experimenting and trying different producers, and different collaborators, and different styles. I'm not rushing."

When pushed for a release date, Perry remained tight-lipped.

"I've got some timelines in my head. But you hear about people going, 'don't take too much time.' And I'm like listen, listen. Let me tell you one thing: music is all that matters. If the music is good, everybody forgets about the time that you took to make it," adding she puts in 110% into everything she does and is "confident if I stay vulnerable and authentic with myself that the music that comes out of me will continue to connect."
