Social media previously speculated on possible “beef” between Chloe Bailey and Tinashe, but both artists have swiftly shut down those rumors.
When the photos were posted two days ago, fans noticed that Tinashe had liked one of the post’s replies, pointing out the photoshoot’s similarities with Tinashe’s Songs For You album cover. “It’s giving @Tinashe’s album cover for Songs For You,” the reply read. Both the album cover and photo set capture the artists at a high-contrast, fish-lens-esque angle, clad in bikini sets and long gloves against a stark white background.

As usual, Twitter acted fast. Talk of “beef” between the two artists came bubbling to the surface, and it wasn’t long before Chloe set the record straight, clarifying that there was never any tension between her and Tinashe in the first place.
“Guys can you please stop,” Chloe’s tweet reads. “There’s no beef between me and @Tinashe. She’s a baddie, and I love everything she does.”
Tinashe responded to the tweet shortly afterward. “Classy queen!!!” Tinashe tweeted back. “You’re the sweetest.”
Social media is great at finding trouble where there is none, often fabricating stories and allegations before artists can speak on their own terms. Now, with the rumors debunked, fans are asking for a potential collab between the two ladies.
