TINASHE

Tinashe gets a workout in joint music video for "Bet" and "Feels Like Vegas"

As she continues making her undeniable mark on the mainstream music world Tinashe releases the final two singles off her incredible debut LP Aquarius with the Dev Hynes assisted (and one of our absolute favourite songs of 2014) "Bet" and the slinky "Feels Like Vegas".

New Music Video: Tinashe "All Hands on Deck" (2015)

It's hard to deny Tinashe's presence in the world of R&B and pop, her acclaimed debut album Aquarius remains one of the best of 2014 and so another video from the LP is always welcome. This time it's stand-out track "All Hands on Deck" which has Tinashe and her crew taking over a shipping yard in Long Beach, California and playing around with some fun choreography. Watch the video below:

New Music Video: Tinashe "Bated Breath" (2015)

We've been waiting for awhile (breath is bated) for R&B princess Tinashe to release "Bated Breath" as a single, it's one of the standouts from her brilliant debut album Aquarius and is by far the song to best show off her raw talent, in both singing, style, and songwriting. The slow-burning number about love and anxiety progresses nicely as the visuals take the R&B 'it' girl to the Mojave desert, as a pilot who crash-lands and struggles to find her way.

Live Review: Tinashe + Thandi Phoenix - Metro Theatre, Sydney (18.02.15)

R&B 'it girl' Tinashe has shot to the top of lists around the world with her brilliant debut Aquarius. Bringing her work to Australian for a tour couldn't have come at a better time, "2 On" finally made it's way onto Aussie radio and tore up the charts, guaranteeing the packed out venues that have greeted Tinashe nationwide. This is no fad though, with massive staying power shining through in every moment of Tinashe's explosive, intimate performance.

New Music Video: Tinashe "Aquarius" (2015)

American singer-songwriter Tinashe released one of the year's stand-out commercial albums last year with her debut Aquarius, impressing both fans and critics with something that far exceeding expectations. The sleek R&B singer showcased her vocal range quite a few times throughout the album, especially on the more intimate moments like the title track for which she has just released (on her 22nd birthday) a grainy self-directed video. There's a lot of lip-licking here as Tinashe seduces the camera around a staircase, watch below.

Best of 2014: Top 50 Hip Hop and R&B songs of 2014 (Part Five: 10-1)

2014 closes in a matter of weeks, and with its end comes a myriad of reflective best of lists that serve as a good way to round up the array of sounds that really made an impact this year. Undoubtedly you'll be seeing a bunch of these lists published on the AU in the coming weeks, but I wanted to kick mine off with a round up of 50 tracks I feel were the best moments of hip hop and R&B - what some people call 'urban music' - this year.

Tinashe announces debut Australian Tour for 2015

Live Nation and Niche have announced today that fast-rising progressive R&B star Tinashe will embark on a three-date debut Australian tour next Feburary. The stunning 21 year old singer, songwriter, and performer will be bringing her edgy R&B to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

Album Review: Tinashe - Aquarius (2014 LP)

On paper, Tinashe fits the R&B starlet mould perfectly. With a killer dance repetoire and sultry vocals, well-documented collaborations with rappers including A$AP Rocky and ScHoolboy Q and the likes of Drake and Future singing her praises, the pint-sized Los Angeles artist has been touted as the genre's 'next Princess'. A girl to follow in the footsteps of your Aaliyahs, Ciaras and Cassies. But as Tinashe's debut album Aquarius demonstrates, there is more than your club hits and remix fodder in this 21 year old's back pocket. In a music climate where the term 'alternative R&B' is thrown around too loosely, Tinashe joins the crop of female vocalists who are utlising some cool production and soundscapes to marry quite gorgeously with their slick groove-laden vocals.

Tinashe's debut album Aquarius is out on Friday (October 7th), but has been streaming all week on Spotify so, if you're a fan of the US R&B artist, chances are you've been vibing off her incredibly soulful and groove-laden maiden effort for some time now. Often compared to the likes of Cassie and Aaliyah with the smash hit "2 On" featuring ScHoolboy Q, Tinashe has proven diversity in her style; when we spoke to her in Austin at SXSW, she did say that the single, while being an insight into Aquarius, wasn't going to be fully representative of the album as a whole.
