Chris Brown Reacts To Tinashe Regretting Her 2015 Collaboration With Him

Taking a look back at her career, Tinashe regrets her 2015 collaboration with Chris Brown and R. Kelly. Back in 2015, while Tinashe was signed to RCA, she teamed up with Chris Brown for a song called ‘Player’. Shortly after, she collaborated with R. Kelly for ‘Let’s Be Real Now’ arrived.


In a new interview with the Zach Sang Show, Tinashe looked back on her collaborations with R. Kelly and Chris Brown with a sense of discomfort, addressing that the record label she was signed with at the time gave her very little choice but to take part along with the artist duo.

Tinashe Regretted Collaborating With Chris Brown And R.Kelly


It wasn’t Tinashe’s idea to work alongside male musicians with histories of sexual misconduct. In a recent interview with the Zach Sang Show, Tinashe, “You think I wanted to collaborate with those artists? I block out that R. Kelly song from my mind. I forget that it even exists. That is so embarrassing. That is so unreal that I even have a song with R. Kelly.”

She further added that she was “so young” when “Let’s Be Real Now” came out, with Sang noting that there is not a lot of “control” over collaborators when you first sign to a label and now it isn’t fair for Tinashe to face scrutiny over her past releases.

Adding on Tinashe also said, “Especially when it comes to singles, for example — that song with Chris Brown. That was a song that we all wanted it to be this big moment, this big single. So I feel like, in their mind, they were like, You need the support. He was their biggest artist that they had on rhythmic radio at the time. To me, I was like, Well, this is a pop song. So, I really don’t feel like we should put Chris on it.’ That doesn’t compute to me, but I don’t know.”
