Stream Toni Romiti’s ‘Tomboy’ EP

Emerging singer Toni Romiti makes her formal introduction to music lovers with her major label debut EP, Tomboy, via RCA Records.

The eight-track offering includes guest appearances from our Rated Next Artist PJ (“Who Dis”) and entertainer/artist DC Young Fly (“Never Thought”). For production, Rotimi worked with Jahaan Sweet, Nard & B, Thomas Crager, Let’s Take A Daytrip and more.

“I want girls to know it’s okay to be arrogant, feel dominant, and have a fucking opinion that matters,” says Romiti. “Women aren’t supposed to be loud. Women aren’t supposed to say the raunchy things that men do. I’m loud, and I say that shit.”

She continues, “I want to redefine what a Tomboy is. You can dabble in so many different things as a girl. I grew up around men, so I know what guys think about girls. I have two sisters, so I know what girls think about guys. I’m a Tomboy. I’m unapologetically myself. I’d rather people dislike me for me than like me for something that I’m not.”

Earlier this month, Romiti was a special guest on Ty Dolla $ign’s Don’t Judge Me Tour on select dates.

Stream Tinashe’s New Album ‘Joyride’

After several delays, Tinashe has finally released her sophomore album, Joyride. The album consists of 13 tracks with appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, French Montana, Little Dragon, Future and Offset.

The 25-year-old singer shared with Vulture what she took away from the album’s delay. “It pushed me to create the version of the album that is coming out now,” she said. “I made the mistake of even talking about the project too soon. When I look back on the entire journey of it, I’m very thankful for the time that it did take. It was important that it ended up taking as long as it did.”

Tinashe added, “There were times along the way were there were creative discrepancies, but I’m happy to say that this project is all me. Everything from the cover art, to the sequencing, to the number of seconds in between the tracks, that’s me.”

Joyride is the follow-up to Tinashe’s debut album, Aquarius, which released in 2014.
