IN or OUT: Tinashe ft. Chris Brown – Player


Author’s Note: In this new format “IN or OUT”, we take the current tracks of today and run them through the team at Music Umpire to see whether we collectively agree if its “IN” or “OUT”. This post will be one of many for Music Umpire.

RCA Records recording artist Tinashe recently shared her brand-new single “Player” featuring Chris Brown. The single is available for purchase at all digital retailers now.

Produced by LULOU and Alex Purple, “Player” is the first official single taken from Tinashe’s highly anticipated sophomore studio album, Joyride.  Written and recorded over the past year, Joyride will be the follow up to 2014’s critically lauded debut studio album, Aquarius.

Recently, after revealing a self-directed trailer for the album (CLICK HERE to watch), Tinashe gave fans an early taste of the album by sharing the sweaty, bone rattling, “Party Favors” featuring Young Thug. 

The buzz is certainly building up for Tinashe’s forthcoming album Joyride, but do the MusicUmpires share the same excitement for Tinashe’s music.

Let’s find out by seeing what they think of Tinashe’s new single “Player” below:

ELECTRA: I love Tinashe she just keeps getting better and she has so much potential. Amazing voice, gorgeous and sick dance moves- literally a triple threat. Song has a nice vibe to it- could easily be played at a pre drinks or on the car ride to the club on a Friday. – IN

DAVINA: It’s a very clubby songand most songs that feature Breezy are IN due to the flavour he adds to the tracks, like this one.  – IN

OJ:  That is defo IN. The Chris brown verse was dope. – IN

Judging by the responses from all three MusicUmpire’s we can unanimously confirm that Tinashe’s “Player” is a resounding: IN!
