Tink Reflects On the Perils of Dating Culture On “Fake Love” (Review)
Award-nominated R&B artist and lyricist Tink offers up empowering anthem “Fake Love,” for anyone looking to reclaim their time, peace and joy after walking away from the baggage of love.
Led by powerful verses that float over a rhythmic hip-hop beat, the groovy production ruminates on the struggles of dating culture weaving through narratives of social media betrayal, dishonesty and other relationship issues.
Rooted in intimate experiences that seamlessly strike a chord with anyone listening, the track showcases Tink’s smoldering yet melodic vocals that evoke both strength and vulnerability within us.
Taken from her latest album Thanks 4 Nothing, the track is accompanied a vivid music video that perfectly captures the message of reclamation at the core of the production as we’re left with an alluring shot of Tink setting a car ablaze in a final act of retaliation to the man who owns it, as she walks away from the fakeness of it all with her head held high.
A powerhouse talent who wears her heart on her sleeve, the Chicago-born songstress and rapper has carved her path in music by constantly evolving and expanding in her craft.
With “Fake Love” being yet another stark exhibition of her ability to combine evocative messages together with infectious soundscapes underscored by raucous energy, Tink is well on her way to becoming a show-stopping star.
