When it comes to any artform, the details are everything.
Now, Tinashe always pays attention to every last detail. Not only does the multi-platinum-certified R&B disruptor sing, write, and dance, but she also produces, mixes, engineers, creative directs, and edits. As a result, she blazes past any and all boundaries.
“As an entertainer and a creative person, I feel limitless,” she asserts. “I don’t feel pressure to conform, because I don’t have to. I don’t sit around and wait for opportunities to fall out of the sky either. When I started making music, I took it upon myself to learn how to do everything. There are very few female producers and engineers. I want to represent that you can be part of each step in the process. In the more recent years, it’s been a discovery of all the things I can do. There’s a sense of boundlessness and fearlessness. I really developed my instincts, and I trust them.”
Those instincts continue to serve her well. Co-mingling seductive R&B, edgy pop, and a nocturnal electronic sensibility, she emerged as a fascinating, focused, and fiery outlier in 2014 with her full-length debut Aquarius. Powered by the double-platinum smash “2 On” [feat. ScHoolboy Q], the album crashed the Top 20 of the BillboardTop 200 upon arrival before popping up on year-end lists by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Stereogum, The Guardian, Vulture, and so many more. Between touring alongside everyone from Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj to Maroon 5, she revved up the official mixtape Nightride. Rolling Stoneand Fuse both proclaimed it among the “20 Best R&B Albums of 2016.”Along the way, she would grace the covers of Complex, V, Dazed, and Nylonin addition to turning up with unforgettable performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!
