If any woman in the R&B genre is coming with consistency, it's undeniably Tink. This New Music Friday (February 24), the Chicago native came through with her second project in less than a year. Titled Thanks 4 Nothing, the 14-track effort finds the vocalist handling 12 titles on her own, though she still requests help from two male contemporaries – Yung Bleu and Ty Dolla $ign.

The former, who's preparing to release his follow-up to last year's TANTRA, shows out on "Stingy," which has quickly emerged as a fan favourite. For the former's part, he joined Tink on track seven, "Let Down My Guard," which boasts plenty of the pair's usual sensual lyrics. While they obviously had the vocals on lock, production from Hitmaka, Cardiak, and WU10 is what really takes the song to the next level.

Ty Dolla $ign and Tink Join Forces on "Let Down My Guard"

The chorus finds our two singers asking important questions to their potential lovers. "If I took you shoppin' on the first day, would you love me? / If I showed my scars and told you stories 'bout the gunplay," the 40-year-old starts of the collaboration. Tink follows with, "If I let you f*ck on the first night, baby, would you judge me? / If I wasn't always legit, used to scam and move them thirties."

Prior to sharing her fourth project in four years, the 27-year-old teased fans with singles like "Toxic" and "Fake Love." Thus far, "Save Your Soul," "Trust Issues," and "Someone On You" appear to be favourites amongst fans.

Quotable Lyrics:

If I took you shoppin' on the first day, would you love me?
If I showed my scars and told you stories 'bout the gunplay
If I let down my guard, would you give a thug your heart?
If I let down my guard, would you let us fall apart?
