Tinashe's 'Nasty' Capsule Collection Includes Condoms

Kilian Melloy READ TIME: 1 MIN.

Tinashe is putting the rap in "wrap," with condoms being part of the new capsule collection that takes its theme from her hit song "Nasty."

"Keeping in tune with the theme of the song, Tinashe is offering more than just shirts, hoodies, and hats this time around," Complex reported.

"The 'Nasty' merch capsule also includes booty shorts, boxer briefs, and thongs," the site said. "Other offerings include heart pendants and a custom matchbook."

Much of the merch is emblazoned with the song's catch phrase, "Match my freak," including the wrappers for the condoms, which are priced, Complex noted, "at $5 each."

"It's worth noting that the instructions on these ask that you 'provide to those with good technique,' a reference to a lyric from the song," the article said.

Tinashe isn't the only out artist to brand condoms as part of their merch offerings. Aussie singing sensation Troye Sivan offers two-packs of condoms in red and black packaging sporting his initials. The "TS" condoms are available for order at Sivan's merch site.

"Tinashe's 'Nasty' was released in April and quickly became a sensation," Complex recalled.

"Tinashe, who parted ways with former label RCA Records over 'creative differences' in 2019 and now releases music independently, says the company is 'gagging' at the success of 'Nasty,' which she performed last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live."
