Tinashe Reveals Surprising Inspiration Behind Her Viral Song “Nasty”


Tinashe has TikTok users grooving.

As her latest song “Nasty” continues to take social media by storm, the singer shared how her nameplate necklace provided major inspiration for the track. 

“I made this necklace around Christmas time,” Tinashe exclusively told E! News at the Alexander Wang Runway Show June 5. “It says ‘nasty’ because I’ve had this nickname in my head ‘Nastynashe.'”

“I had just made the necklace and I actually went to the studio and I was like, ‘Hmm, what should I write a song about today?” the 31-year-old continued. “I was like, ‘Why not write it about this nasty necklace that I just made?’ So it was like the chain manifested the song.”

The video that led to the TikTok trend was an unexpected catalyst. A February clip of user Nate Di Winer dancing to soca music was reuploaded on X, formerly known as Twitter, in April by a user who paired it with “Nasty.”
