Tinashe Announces ‘Match My Freak’ EP Featuring Viral Hit “Nasty”

Tinashe’s track “Nasty” has recently gained significant attention online, prompting the singer to announce a new EP. On Monday (June 17), Tinashe revealed that her EP, Match My Freak, will be available on streaming platforms at midnight (June 18).

The EP will include remixes of “Nasty,” featuring contributions from Jane Remover, OG Ron C, and DJ Candlestick, who have produced a ChopNotSlop edit. Fans are looking forward to these new versions of the track, which has already made a strong impact on social media.

“Nasty” was initially released in April to coincide with Tinashe’s performances at the 2024 Coachella festival. The music video has garnered over 7.6 million views on YouTube, and the track debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in mid-June. This marks Tinashe’s first appearance on the chart as a lead artist since her 2014 hit “2 On” featuring ScHoolboy Q.

The song has also attracted the attention of other celebrities. Janet Jackson incorporated “Nasty” into her concert performance, blending it with her own 1986 hit of the same name. Tinashe expressed her excitement and surprise at Jackson’s nod. Additionally, Beyoncé featured a snippet of the track on her Instagram Stories while promoting CÉCRED, bringing the song to an even wider audience.

In an interview with Variety, Tinashe discussed the immediate impact of “Nasty.” “I noticed a difference almost immediately because I started getting hit up by my peers,” she said. “People see my content all the time, but it’s rare to get a DM from Meghan Trainor saying, ‘I love that song,’ or from Kehlani or Tyla. Within the first week of releasing it, a lot of people were messaging me saying, ‘That’s that s**t.’ So I thought, ‘OK, this is different. Unusual.’”

In 2023, Tinashe released BB/ANG3L, a seven-track project featuring songs like “Talk To Me Nice,” “None Of My Business,” and “Needs.” This project highlighted her versatility and ability to connect with her audience. She is currently working on a follow-up project titled BB/ANG3L PT. 2: QUANTUM BABY, which is expected to be released later this year.

The release of Match My Freak is another significant moment in Tinashe’s career. Fans are eager to hear the new remixes of “Nasty” and see what the EP has to offer. The launch is likely to further establish her presence in the music industry and showcase her creativity as an artist.

Tinashe’s recent success with “Nasty” and the upcoming release of Match My Freak indicate a promising period in her career. The reception of “Nasty” and the anticipation for the EP show that Tinashe is gaining momentum and reaching new audiences. As she prepares to release more music throughout the year, her influence in the music scene continues to grow.

The release of Match My Freak builds on the success of “Nasty” and sets the stage for future projects. Fans and new listeners alike can look forward to more innovative and engaging music from Tinashe, reinforcing her position as a talented and dynamic artist in the industry.
