ABC/Craig SjodinAfter being eliminated from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Monday night, Tinashe is now turning her focus from the ballroom to the recording studio.
“Oh yeah. New music is in the works,” she tells ABC Radio. “I was working on it pre-Dancing with the Stars. “Excited to get it out ASAP.”
Tinashe released her most recent album, Joyride, in April. It included the single “No Drama,” featuring Offset from Migos.
The “2 On” singer and her pro partner, Brandon Armstrong, had consistently received high scores from the judges since the show began on September 24. When host Tom Bergeron announced that they’d been eliminated on Monday night, the crowd booed.
“We could have done some cool stuff, so that’s the bummer,” Tinashe says of her elimination.
The entertainer from Lexington Kentucky believes the early success she achieved with Armstrong actually worked to their disadvantage.
“I think there’s something to be said for, if you’re good, people don’t think you need votes,” she says. “They’re like, ‘Oh, they’re good. I’m gonna vote for somebody who, like, needs help.” (AUDIO IS ABC 1-ON-1)
Tinashe did not reveal a release date for her music, but she says she’s anxious to have new songs for her fans.
