A day after Tinashe made a special appearance on DJ Mustard’s 10 Summers, the 21-year-old singer has released a track of her own, called “In the Meantime,” which is probably a little treat to hold us off until her album drops sometime in September.
A follow-up to her successful single “2 On,” which was remixed by Drake, “In the Meantime” was produced by T-Minus, who injected a haunting, bass-heavy beat. The thumping bass accompanies Tinashe’s sexy and mesmerizing call for a guy who can keep her occupied until she finds a new man.
“Late night, late night, ay/ Late night on a weekday/ Ridin’ ’round town smokin’ now with my windows down, ho,” she sings on the hook, and you can almost imagine smoke coming from her mouth as she delivers those lyrics.
“Future was one of the few people who I actually got to work with face-to-face,” she said, admitting she spent four days in the studio with him in Atlanta. “When you’re working in the studio with Future, it’s similar to my writing process. You definitely just first vibe out and get to know one another, get to know the track, get to know where we’re trying to go with it and then he goes into the booth and says whatever comes out. And then afterwards he’ll go back in and really figure out what lyrics he wants and what he wants to say.”
