Stuck with me is the most played song of the album on Spotify (aside from the singles)

hopefully the label sees that and makes the right decision. USA just doesnt care enough about her, so they better push Tinashe in Europe and other countries. I just dont understand why some labels treat their artists as just local artists.

Me neither, Superlove, All My Friends among other songs could have been big in some markets

I mean... Chris Brown is an RCA artist too, right?
he doesnt sound in my country anymore. wtf? (an I dont even care about Chris, but its very weird)

There is a big top 40 radio station in my country and I dont remember the last time Chris sounded there. and of course they have never played Tinashe. RCA is just shit

Intro + Joyride are already tiring.
I don't even want to listen to the rest ... Idk.
Aquarius is soooo good - and then theArmy and all of those Basic Songs happened and all of my excitment for her were gone.

I've been saying this!!!!! They better promote her in Asia. She's loved by many K-Pop acts and her music could sell over there. And "All My Friends" was quite a major hit here as well. A member of the biggest K-Pop boybands atm already asked her for a collab, so did one of Korean most popular R&B acts. RCA is just... She could make some $$$ over here. :roll: :roll: :roll:

The Chris Brown situation is understandable. He's problematic so it's hard to have him promote on TV because you'll never know what he's gonna say so... :lol:

^^ thanks for sharing. I bought the album on Google Play and I think I'll skip on the physical copy. Aquarius looked so beautiful though.

No Contest is the track that has grown on me the most. It did not get my full attention immediately but I fully appreciate its super relaxed groove and ‘feel good’ vibe.

Another Tinashe favourite of mine.

My honey moon period is over with this, I don’t get why the interludes are there. The only ones I’m really drawn to now are Stuck With Me and Me So Bad. I feel let down by the album now I’ve had time to digest it.

To think she made Aquarius and this is the second album is really shocking. The quality and depth isn’t there this time. Joyride feels messy.

Well Nightride was probably the album she had in mind when she started to develop Joyride, the current Joyride is basically the compromise she had to make for her label

I feel like Joyride should’ve been a mix of both.

She's set to sell 5-7K in pure sales with streaming added she's at 15-20K. Her pure sales are dreadful but her streaming numbers should've been more higher considering her popularity.

Did we expect it to be a big hit?

Tbh the numbers are not even that bad, considering the disastrous era that comes along with it

taking into account that Aquarius had a big hit in 2 on and Joyride didnt have one hit... yeah, its not that that bad.

but its still sad. She deserve better numbers than this. But this is just RCa's and radio fault. they should have sent No drama to all formats in the same month. I never understood how lazy and weird are usa radios.

1. Keep Your Eyes On the Road (Intro) 10/10
2. Joyride 10/10
3. No Drama 10/10
4. He Don't Want It 8/10
5. Ooh La La 7/10
6. Me So Bad 10/10
7. Ain't Good For Ya (Interlude) 9/10
8. Stuck With Me 8/10
9. Go Easy On Me (Interlude) /
10. Salt 9/10
11. Faded Love 10/10
12. No Contest 7/10
13. Fires and Flames 9/10

Why are the fan favorites my least favorite songs? :lol:

I still think that they should push "Me So Bad" as a single. In my opinion it's the only song on the album that has the chance to do something on the Hot 100 and on radios. There's some stuff on there that would probably do well on R&B charts tho.

"Joyride" is my favorite track. It sounds epic and I love the effects on her voice! I'm glad that she got this bop back from Rihanna.

Hmmm.... I'll keep a few tracks:

The interludes (Keep Your Eyes On The Road, Go Easy On Me)
Salt
No Contest
Fires and Flames

The rest, including the singles, are a mess. To be honest, this is the mixtape, "Nightride" is the real album.

The interludes are actually the weakest part of the album. Which is a bit sad considering how amazing interludes on Aquarius were.
