Timbaland revealed he’s working with the ‘Joyride’ singer on her new album.


BreatheHeavy approved: Tinashe and Timbaland are joining forces for a song together.

Typically we are the bearer of bad news when we have a report about Tinashe’s upcoming(???) album Joyride, but this latest update shines some much needed hope on the singer’s imploding album plans.

The “2 On” singer united with mastermind producer Timbaland in the recording studio on Sunday, giving us hope the record is back on track.

Tinashe has been trying to release Joyride for many months. She even embarked on a tour using that name with the hopes she’d eventually release the record in that time-frame, but after performing for several months, it was evident the album had no release date in sight. She ultimately cancelled the duration of the tour, citing “unexpected recording commitments.”

“I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released,” she told fans last month.

Several weeks ago, Tinashe admitted her label wanted Chris Brown to feature on “Player” then explained the impending release. “Well, the album is facing delays, which many albums do, and right now I really don’t know when it’s gonna come out,” she said. “I just really wanted people to get excited about the album and introduce some new music to them. I got a lot of stuff in store so I just really want people to be excited about it when it drops.”

To make matters worse, her lead album title track “Joyride” was reportedly given to Rihanna.

Can Timbaland help the up-and-comer launch to super-stardom? It’s safe to say… he can.
