Like I Used To has had a ridiculous amount of staying power with me this year. It has a fairly simplistic structure but it has Tinashe’s signature wordplay, smooth production and hooks for days. It’s easily become one of her best ever songs for me.
I get so frustrated listening to songs like No Drama and Like I Used To because we shouldn't be living in a world where Post Malone is smashing and Tinashe is stuck in label limbo and doing Fox musicals.
I know I might get berated for this take, and I mean it in the most complimentary way possible. Mr. Post is really just a more mumbly, less talented Tinashe and the scales of PopJustice need to be balanced out in 2019.
As much as I adore and love her and am profoundly confused as to why she hasn't blown up yet.
But the other day, someone explained to me that her voice is just not memorable and they think she's releasing sub-par music beside her earlier works. I kinda agree?
