On the glittering red carpet of the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, R&B sensation Tinashe took a moment to discuss the inspiration behind her latest album, 'BB/ANG3L' The album, a harmonious blend of electronic and R&B vibes, features just seven tracks, making it Tinashe’s most concise project to date.

Tinashe, who rose to fame with hits like "2 On", remarked, "In an era of excess, sometimes it's essential to streamline and eliminate the unnecessary. I wanted every track on 'BB/ANG3L' to resonate, to be a piece fans could genuinely connect with." The 30-year-old songstress emphasized her desire for listeners to relish each song, letting the melodies and lyrics steep and settle.

She added, "As artists, we pour our souls into these albums. It can be overwhelming to unveil it all at once. Music needs its time."

Tinashe's Tease: More Music?

While 'BB/ANG3L' might be brief, Tinashe is no stranger to serving her fans with constant music.

Following the success of her 2021 album '333', she delighted her audience with a deluxe edition, adding four fresh songs. As for whether 'BB/ANG3L' might follow a similar path? Tinashe playfully teased, "Who knows? Just keep an eye out." The excitement doesn't stop at the album.

Fans of the "All Hands on Deck" singer are in for a treat as she's announced a co-headlining North American tour with experimental musician Shygirl. The duo's synergy isn't just professional; they share a bond that took root at a Brooklyn music festival last year.

Reminiscing about their meeting, Tinashe shared, "It was an instant connection. Our collaboration on 'Heaven' felt so organic, and touring together was a no-brainer." Their highly anticipated tour promises to be a musical extravaganza, kicking off on October 28th in Chicago and culminating on November 18th in Oakland, California.

For those lucky enough to snag tickets, it promises to be an unforgettable experience as Tinashe presents 'BB/ANG3L' and more, alongside the uniquely talented Shygirl.
