Tink Biography


Tink was born Trinity Laure’Ale Home in Calumet City, Illinois, about 20 miles south of Chicago. As a young child, he sang in the church, and at the age of 12, he began writing songs. She published her first few mixtapes when she was still a teenager. The majority of this music was created and recorded in their basement studio alongside her father, who also engineered the recordings.

Tink, a confident rapper and singer whose lyrics are unapologetically honest, rose to prominence as a young person in the early 2010s with a number of mixtapes, including the first two installments of her well-regarded series Winter’s Diary. These recordings led him a spot in the Freshman Class of 2015 feature in XXL magazine and a deal with the record company of hitmaker Timbaland.

Career & Projects

In 2012 and 2013, four tapes, beginning with the first volume of the Winter’s Diary series, were delivered. 2014 saw the release of Winter’s Diary 2, which featured the longing song “Treat Me Like Somebody.” By the end of that year, Future Brown, Sleigh Bells, Jeremih, Kelela, DJ Dahi, and Timbaland were among the artists that have used Tink as a featured artist on their songs.

Even though the Timbaland contract didn’t work out, Tink has continued to advance with chart-topping indie albums like Pain & Pleasure (2018), Hopeless Romantic (2020), and Heat of the Moment (2021) among her later releases. After acquiring creative autonomy, Tink made a comeback in 2018 with the Pain & Pleasure EP, which peaked at number 147 on the Billboard 200.

By the end of 2020, she had added the mixtape Voicemails, the album Hopeless Romantic, and the EP A Gift and a Curse to her discography after signing a new distribution agreement. Tink’s debut single, Hopeless Romantic, entered the Billboard 200. (at number 99). Heat of the Moment, the second one, debuted in 2021 and peaked at number 54.
