Tinashe Says She “BLOCKS OUT” R. Kelly Collabs

Singer Tinashe says she wants to forget her work with disgraced singer R. Kelly and that she’s embarrassed by it.

The pair have worked on a couple of tracks together early on in her career when she had just signed to her label.

“You think I wanted to [do those songs]? I literally 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. That’s so embarrassing. Yes that was labely. And I was so young too. I feel like I did that song when I just signed to that label. I was probably like 20. That was crazy,” the singer said on the Zach Zang Show.

She continued: “You [lack a lot of control in that situation.] And especially when it comes to singles like the song with Chris…that was a song that we all wanted to be this big moment, this big single. So I feel like in [the label’s] mind, they were like, ‘You need the support.’ And he was like their biggest artist that they had on rhythmic radio at the time. And 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!”
