Hip-Hop, RnB | TBT: Tinashe ft. Chance The Rapper – Ecstasy (Remix)

This time last year Chance had just dropped ‘Juice’, a feature track off of his second Mixtape Acid, and his buzz was just building. Around the same time last year the multi-talented Tinashe was assembling her second tape, Reverie. Now a year later they are both in the midst of their ascension into God-like-status, so it’s hard to imagine that their collaborative joint was criminally slept-on, it was low-key one of the best collabs of last year. The ‘Ecstasy’ remix was an early window into the dynamism of both of these  artists. Tinashe and Chance have since individually hopped on some major joints with some artful musicians and they seem to always fit in wherever a microphone needs blessing.
