The Navy, who often show their extremely devoted fandom to Rihanna, didn’t hesitate to dismiss Tinashe’s tribute on Twitter. Here they go:

Tinashe changes the lyrics a bit on her version, singing the chorus as “Sex with me, so exclusive/All this hard work, no excuses/Pussy so good, baby, that it stupid/Put a nigga in a his feelings, hit ‘em up like cupid.” She also reworks the opening verse with “Bubblegum, ballet, and yoga/And a few other tricks I’m trying to show ya,” before then going into more steamy lyrics about sex.
Tinashe has been busy gearing up for the release of her second studio album, Joyride. She has teased the project with singles such as “Party Favors” with Young Thug, “Ride of Your Life,” "Player" featuring Chris Brown, and “Superlove.” You can expect Joyride to drop this fall.
