Tinashe has been prepping the release of her sophomore album, Joyride, and from the looks of it, the LP may be receiving contributions from some big names. In recent days, she hinted at new music with the likes of Miguel, Big Sean, Skrillex and Diplo.
The “2 On” singer shared a photo of the musical crew accompanied by Chicago songstress, Njomza, on Instagram. She captioned the photo with, “Making music somewhere in Malibu.”

No word on what the group of artists are working on in particular, but judging from a photo posted by Miguel, they may have joined forces as a writing camp.

Back in November, Tinashe was featured on the cover of Dazed magazine. The publication reported a January release date for Joyride with contributions from Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Hit-Boy, Travis $cott, Dev Hynes, Nic Nac and Boi-1da, as well as Chris Brown, who appears on the lead single “Player.”
“I want it to be exciting, I want it to keep you on your toes, I want people to not know what to expect,” Tinashe said. “It’s the perfect title for this point in my life… I feel like I’m on a joyride all the time. It’s dangerous, it’s an adventure, it’s emotional.”
Tinashe previously revealed that she has 30 tracks recorded for her forthcoming LP. She has not announced who to expect feature wise, aside from Brown, or whether or not the project will actually drop this month. Her critically acclaimed debut, Aquarius, included guest spots from ScHoolboy Q, Future and A$AP Rocky. The album dropped in October 2014.
