Chicago’s R&B sweetheart, Tink released her highly anticipated new project Heat Of The Moment today (via Winter’s Diary / EMPIRE). Executive produced by Hitmaka, the project features guest appearances from Yung Bleu, on the lead-single “Selfish,” as well as Jeremih, Davido, and Kodak Black. In the “Heat of The Moment” video, Tink is clearing up rumors while serving looks.
“With Heat of the Moment, I want people to see the elevation in me,” Tink explains. “Through all the hate, I’m still rising. The video feels like a reintroduction. I’m showing people I’m the same bitch, just on a different level. I’m excited for this album, solely because It’s different from anything I’ve ever released. I really stepped out of the box and pushed my sound on each record. Working alongside Hitmaka made it fun. And I’m just happy to deliver good music for the fans.”
“Fake a smile, but I be shutting down. So-called friend, I’m like “Where are you now”. When I need you nowhere to be found,” Tink dishes on the casualties and struggles of growth and elevation on “Heat Of The Moment,” and how the rumors, hate and fake love take a toll on her. The new project and video comes behind the release of her Yung Bleu-assisted and OG Parker, Hitmaka-produced single, “Selfish.”
Tink is the undisputed Queen of Chicago R&B. Born on the southside of Chicago, music has continued to be a constant thread for Tink from the beginning. Her 2014 collaboration with Da Internz birthed her first collaboration with Jeremih, the breakout hit “Don’t Tell Nobody”. The song caught the ear of superproducer Timbaland, who then introduced Tink to L.A. Reid and Epic Records. After a short stint with Epic, in 2015, Tink continued her Winter’s Diary series with the release of Winter’s Diary 3 and 2016’s Winter’s Diary 4. She broke away from the Winter’s Diary series with her 2018 Pain & Pleasure EP. In 2019, Tink inked a distribution deal with EMPIRE and released her Voicemails project. Unbridled by covid-19, In 2020, she returned to her roots accelerating the rate of her releases with the drop of Hopeless Romantic immediately followed by A Gift And A Curse, featuring “Bottom Bitch,” (9.6M views) and fan-favorite, “Cap.” Now, in 2021, Tink is poised to reclaim her throne, not only as Chicago’s R&B sweetheart but the world’s.
