R&B newcomer Tinashe, known for her hit song "2 On," was scheduled to tour with Iggy Azalea on her "Great Escape Tour," but after the "Fancy" rapper had to reschedule the tour, Tinashe signed up to tour with Nicki Minaj.

Now, the singer is explaining why she couldn't stay on the Azalea tour, and why she chose the Minaj tour.

According to Tinashe, the rescheduling of Azalea's tour meant the singer could not join her on the new dates.

"Well, I was initially confirmed to go on tour with Iggy this summer," Tinashe said. "And I was super excited about it. It was me, Nick Jonas. And then she postponed the tour.

"So, totally unrelated. I hadn't committed to Nicki. I didn't even know there was a Nicki Minaj tour yet. The tour was already postponed and I already had prior commitments in the fall.

"And I wasn't able to go on tour with her in the fall, which is when it was rescheduled to. So, we couldn't do the tour.

"Unfortunately, I had to part ways. And then after that happened, coincidentally, I got the Nicki Minaj offer... I'm really excited. I think the lineup on the tour is amazing." 

Tinashe also revealed how she received backlash for making a song with Azalea and how she dealt with the criticism, which involved staying off of social media.

"When we first announced that and I had the remix with her there was a lot of backlash, which I was expecting because I knew that she gets a lot of hate via social media," she said.

"But I'm not typically used to that level of backlash. So, I kinda had to avoid social media for a couple of days cause I was like 'Woah, this is a lot.'"
