Chicago's new hip-hop queen emerges with a soulful new single that immediately scorches.
Tink grabs Song of the Week with her brand new single "Million." Following in the footsteps of a long string of Chicago trailblazers such as Kanye West, Common, No I.D., and Lupe Fiasco, the city produces a new queen for the genre within this sizzling rapper, singer, songwriter, and artist—in the truest sense of the world. The track solidifies that claim a hundredfold, and the world will get to hear why over and over again when her full-length debut, Think Tink [Mosley Music Group/Epic Records], impacts later this summer.
Following the instantly dope "Ratchet Commandments," Tink's immense mic skills fuel "Million." She's got an airtight wordplay that singes on sight, while she ushers Aaliyah's "One In a Million" to the forefront of a new generation. It keeps the legendary singer's spirit alive, while paying homage to her soul by doing something groundbreaking for the current era. It's the robust verses that truly stand out, giving fire to a love song.
She's gotten heaps of critical acclaim and has Timbaland behind the board as Executive Producer and label. Hip-hop needs this kind of voice. She's like a continuation of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill for Spotify nation. Tink is the voice this era needed.
