Tinashe Addresses Rumors She Signed With Roc Nation

Tinashe has stepped forward to address reports that she has signed a deal with Roc Nation.

The hip hop rumor mill never stops turning — the latest story to be churned out concerns an apple to our eye, the lovely Tinashe. The rumor may not be completely false since it came from the credible source of Hip hop and R&B producer, Hitmaka. He had this to say when asked about Tinashe during a recent interview, “I actually spoke to her just recently. She left RCA Records, I believe she’s managed by Roc Nation now.”

In an impromptu interview with paparazzi, Tinashe assured her fans that she didn’t sign anything and that the rumors are completely false. However, she did confirm that she is now an independent artist after parting ways with RCA.

Earlier in the year, the singing sensation confirmed her split from RCA Records, with whom she had been since 2014. RCA Records is an American record label owned by Sony Music. The Jay Z owned Roc Nation is known to manage some of the biggest names in the industry. However, A few fans were concerned over the move stating, “Tinashe should’ve went to Atlantic….. cause Roc Nation is trash at breaking out new artist. I really hope that this works out fo my Good sis, I am rooting for her.”

One fan criticized Roc Nation, citing possibly favoritism in the camp. “How many female urban artists have signed to Roc Nation and left the label in less than two years? Justine Skye only lasted a year, Tinashe you really think Roc Nation is going to make you priority when they have Rihanna?” the fan wrote.

There is no concrete evidence that the move is a done deal, however, one thing is for certain, it would mean the world for her and for her fans to see her finally getting the love and respect she deserves.

Her fans were treated to the Kentucky born’s Southern hospitality when she gave out her personal number on Social Media a few days ago. Her followers went ecstatic and with many writing what could be considered epistles, confessing their admiration for the 26-year-old singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, and actress. A few persons questioned the legitimacy of the phone number, even asking for selfies as proof. She responded with a tweet saying, “Y’all it’s really me, I swear lol… I can’t send selfies to everyoneeeeee omg.”

It seems Tinashe is in a happy place, and we cannot wait to hear what she will be serving up with her new label, whichever she chooses.
