Illinois rapper and singer Tink has largely stayed out of the music game this year, though not without reason. After releasing two full-length albums last year along with a handful of singles, she definitely earned a bit of a break. However, the 26-year-old artist has come back strong with “Selfish” featuring Yung Bleu — a track perfectly suited for long summer nights.
The song presents itself much like its hit Summer R&B predecessors (think “Go Crazy” by Chris Brown and Young Thug or “No Guidance” by Drake and Chris Brown) with help from Hitmaka, who constructs a pleasantly simple and bouncy beat. This creates the perfect canvas by which Tink can glide across the track with endearing melodies that prove to be catchy. Her lyrics only serve to enhance the vibe she’s created, as “Selfish” finds Tink in the midst of a passionate relationship.
Yung Bleu also does his thing on the track, excelling at the standard Tink had set and showing off some of his best writing yet. After his feature, Tink truly shines as the track breaks down and the production slows down. The Illinois rapper breaks into an intimate and direct rap verse pleading with a distant lover.
Tink’s “Selfish” featuring Yung Bleu is sure to find a way onto your Summer playlist one way or another- it’s too fun not to!
