How Many Times
by Tinashe (featuring Future)

  • This song was co-written by and features Future. Tinashe told MTV News that she spent four days in the studio with the Atlanta hip-hopper.

    "Future was one of the few people who I actually got to work with face-to-face," she said. "When you're working in the studio with Future, it's similar to my writing process. You definitely just first vibe out and get to know one another, get to know the track, get to know where we're trying to go with it and then he goes into the booth and says whatever comes out. And then afterwards he'll go back in and really figure out what lyrics he wants and what he wants to say."
  • The song samples Janet Jackson's Control track, "Funny How Time Flies (When You're Having Fun)."
  • The Future collaboration was one of Tinashe's favorites on Aquarius. "When he came with this verse, he had some singing," she recalled to MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson. "I was like, OK, Future, I see you. So I was pretty happy with how it turned out."
