A tweet from Kanye West is extremely rare these days, but a tweet praising something is even more rare.
Tinashe is already doing pretty well for herself in the music game, as she landed a spot on Nicki Minaj‘s Pinkprint Tour this summer, and dominated the charts with her latest album Aquarius, but her recent co-sign from Yeezy might take her to a larger-than-life level.
The G.O.O.D. Music label head recently tweeted about the songstress’ new music video for her track “All Hands On Deck,” where he expressed his admiration for the set of visuals.
While she posted some of her disbelief and excitement once she got word of the tweet, she shared her actual in-person reaction during an sit-down with Hot 97.
She told the story to the hosts:
“I was in the studio. I’m working on new music. I’m working on my second album. So I was in the booth, I was on my focus s**t.” she joked. “My brother texts me and it’s a screenshot of the tweet and at first I thought t it was like Photoshop. I thought someone had doctored up some image. I was like ‘wait a minute, this is like a real tweet.’” She gushed on the white couch, “This is actually crazy. So I had to stop singing for a second and was like ‘hang on you guys Kanye just tweeted my music video. We have to stop, we have to cut!’” she added, “I’ve never met him. Another person I’m looking forward to meeting.”
Tinashe also talks about wanting to meet Nicki Minaj and touch her breasts when they’re on tour, not wanting to date a rapper, and more. See the full interview above.
