With their debut full-length served up late last month, producer collective Future Brown gave fans of Chicago upstart Tink some more fodder with a pair of tracks on which she features.
They spoke about recording with Tink, a protege of producer Timbaland, the group recalled the experience of watching her write and record for the album’s lead track.
“To me it just sounded like the most R&B instrumental on the entire record,” group member Fatima Al Qadari said of the song “302.” “Clearly this was for someone who was gonna write it that way. Tink [wrote and] recorded all the vocals for the track in two hours, like finished.”
“She actually didn’t need to redo any take, everything was like her first take, even her ad-libs,” J-Cush added. “She just nailed it…That was her first studio session outside of her basement in Calumet City [near] Chicago. To see her work like that we’d been wondering, ‘How long had she been making tracks to be that talented and so gifted to just like flow?'”
Sounds like Tink is on a continued track of meeting the right people.
