“Me so Bad” is out there and it’s pretty shit. Not exactly the record she should have launched the pre-order with, but whatever.
“Me So Bad” is ok. Not as substantial as “No Drama” and “Faded Love” though. Hoping we get the tracklist with the pre-order.
Ty Dolla Sign’s rapping sounds a little like Chris Brown in this. I’d rather he just sang his whole verse.
So apparently some of the tracklist (not in order) has leaked as songs have been registered on music databases with 2018 set as the release date/year.
1. Ain’t Good For Ya (Interlude) [1:03 secs]
2. Faded Love (feat. Future) [3:24 secs]
3. Fires and Flames [3:45 secs]
4. Go Easy On Me (Interlude) [0:31 secs]
5. He Don’t Want It [2:42 secs]
6. Keep Your Eyes on The Road (Intro) [1:14]
7. Joyride [3:25 secs]
8. Me So Bad (feat. French Montana & Ty Dolla $ign) [3:11 secs]
9. No Contest [3:47 secs]
10. No Drama (feat. Offset) [3:20 secs]
11. Oh La La [3:15 secs]
12. Salt [3:48 secs]
13. Stuck With Me (feat. Little Dragon) [3:25 secs]
Total duration: 34:50
Little Dragon are a Swedish electronic band whose works range from trip hop, synth-pop, dream pop, electro indie and alternative R&B.
Whilst I’m hoping there are more tracks as 35 minutes is extremely short for a Tinashe album, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the real deal with the way RCA has treated her over the past 4 years.
Ideally the album would be twenty tracks in length, but thirteen tracks really isn’t all that surprising.
What’s more interesting is that Travis Scott isn’t mentioned on the title track anymore.
I’m curious about the title track too. I’m just glad that she managed to get it back under her name after RCA gave it to Rihanna, if it’s true that happened.

The back cover design is quite bland. Little disappointed. The inconsistency with the single covers aesthetic to the album art is a poor design decision. I wonder how much creative control T actually had with this.
The title track is probably the song she was talking about in her MTV interview. She mentioned that a section from one of the album tracks is a few years old and the rest of the same track has been reworked.
which, you know, wouldn’t exactly surprise me.
That’s how I am at this point.
The whole album’s roll out has been messy and I just don’t care anymore.
I’m low-key hoping she parts ways with RCA this year and signs to a better label. Whilst I’m happy she’s finally being allowed to release the album, I can’t help but be a little bitter at how the label has treated her in the past.
Here’s hoping she signed a two album contract with RCA—although I’m afraid she signed a longer contract with them as she threw some subtle shade in a recent interview where she alluded to not being able to release another album until 2020.
@Kenji do you know if any tracks have leaked from this era that didn’t make the final cut?
Pour Your Love on Me
Same Old Me
The way this album is being rolled out makes me believe this may possibly be her last album under RCA. Three singles beforehand, all with music videos, but no televised appearances or performances whatsoever is a little bit suspicious.
“Me So Bad” music video is available on iTunes and Apple Music for those who live in Asia, Australia and Europe. It’s good, very summery, the study and blue locker scenes are the most aesthetically appealing. French Montana brings nothing to the song or video.
