THEY. have enlisted Tinashe for a groovy new song, “Play Fight.”
“Uh, when we playfight / I’mma eat it like I don’t know what it taste like / Round four, next round I let you take five / Fuck around, keep going to the daylight,” THEY.’s Drew Love sings on the chorus, before Tinashe jumps in on the second verse.
“We’re always trying to channel the energy of the songs I grew up with into something fresh and new,” the R&B duo shared with the FADER. “This one definitely draws from a lot of the feel-good summer records from the early ’00s.”
“Play Fight” will be featured on THEY.’s upcoming project, The Amanda Mixtape. It was first previewed with the song “Count Me in” last month. No release date for the tape has been announced yet.
Tinashe, on the other hand, collaborated with electronic producer ZHU for their song “Only” in May. Last year, she released her album Songs for You, which included the tracks “Save Room for Us,” “Stormy Weather” and “Cash Race.”
