New Video: Tinashe – ‘Bated Breath’

Published: Wednesday 4th Mar 2015 by Sam

Tinashe is playing no games with her plan for superstardom.

The singer has unwrapped the video for ‘Bated Breath’ from her debut album ‘Aquarius’ and revealed that she financed it herself.

Speaking to W about the six hour shoot, the 22-year-old said:

“It wasn’t a big production or anything.

The label didn’t finance the video, so she decided to take things into her own hands. “I don’t like to sit around waiting for people to do things for me. So when I know my label’s not going to produce music videos, I’ll either make them myself or I’ll find people that I think are cool and reach out to them directly. I’m like, ‘F*ck it. I’ll just do it.’”

The singer describes the Stephen Garnett visual, which was shot in the Mojave Desert, as “grungier” than past efforts.

Check it out below…

No. Just no.

This is the second consecutive video where there’s been a deliberate deviation from what the masses want – which is more ‘2 On’ esque songs, visuals, and choreography.

We’re all for artistic versatility and ultimately dig her album for that. However, at such an early stage in the game, it’s about supply and demand and it’s clear no one, no where asked for a near-nine-minute video of randomness in a desert. Especially when she has a blazing single impacting radio in the form of ‘All Hands On Deck’.

Needless to say, the video for the latter needs to arrive pronto.

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

      • britneyraycarey March 4, 2015

  2. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

    🙂 My bítch looks amazing,IDGAF about anyones opinion on Tinashe is here to fúcking slay all of the basics, including Malariah and her elusive vocals 🙁 Tinashe is slaying Janet in her prime! and well of course Babidi 🙂 🙂

    • Mimi Carey March 4, 2015

      But Mariah has more talent than Rihanna and Tinashe

      • Rihboy March 4, 2015

        Had more talent.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

        Malariah is the definition of phony! I can’t with you delusional höes trying to keep Moo relevant, her vocals are tragic!!! The Lambs and the Fleahive are the most deluded fanbases. and Rihanna can sing circles around Mariah, she even slayed her at her own song.

        http://youtu.be/bTtMXLe5z3Y?t=1m43s

        Keep being persist tho, one day it may pay off at your job at the local K-Mart 🙂

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* March 4, 2015

      Realistically. REALISTICALLY. you can hate Babidi all you want but you KNOW her AND RIHANNAs production slays this video. Watch Hard by Rihanna to see how it’s done. Rih was serving face and body. This video was serving dust LITERALLY.

      • Faf March 5, 2015

        Why do yall say babidi I don’t get it

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* March 5, 2015

        @faf someone said it a few days ago. It’s a dragon ball z character but I think it’s hilariousky and I like BEYONCEs pretentious ass.

  3. Alexx March 4, 2015

    Tinashe is coming thru she has more artistry than Beyonce and Rihanna

    • I don’t stan March 4, 2015

      Omg!! Who are these pressed ho’es that thumb down this comment it isn’t like it was a lie. Kii

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* March 4, 2015

      Tropico slayed this to be honest. And I truly thought timashe was gonna stay. She’s proving me wrong like her single choices suck and its a shame. I WAS ROOTING FOR YOU *tyra voice*

  4. Sevyn stan March 4, 2015

    I’m for it! Tinashe is an ARTIST and I respect that! Sev, Tin and Jhene are the future!

  5. Jasmine March 4, 2015

    Loving the new r&b girls like Tinashe,Jhene and Seyvn they’re true artist. This girl has much potential watch out Beyonce.

    • I don’t stan March 4, 2015

      Again why are the girls mad thumbing down comments. They seething at the facts. Lol

  6. yes March 4, 2015

    funny how her record label wont invest in her and produce videos for her singles…

    There is definitely a ‘select few’ in the music industry who deliberately get all the attention.

    • Faf March 5, 2015

      Hunny her album sold 17k why would they pay for more than 2 vids she already had pretend and 2 on

  7. FutureCIARA March 4, 2015

    Why are yall in here doing the most, over-hyping this basic a** video….
    Ch….
    Go purchase All Flops on Deck to get it re-entered into iTunes chart.

    • Mimi Carey March 4, 2015

      Shouldn’t you be out buying “I Bet Future Don’t Love Me”

    • Valerie March 4, 2015

      Ikr! The reaching is real.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 4, 2015

      LMAO Seethe!

      Weren’t you BRAGGING about Cierror’s PEAK position on BB Hot 100 at #98? LMFAO. Smh. Good luck at reviving a dead career though.
      2005 – 2007. 😀

      • Molly March 4, 2015

        But where’s Tinashes career? Only thing she has to her name is 2 on which struggled to reach #24, Ciara has countless amount of hits and awards. #KnowYourPlace

  8. Al March 4, 2015

    Just goes to show what the label wants n what she wants to promote can smell somebody leaving her label

  9. Mimi Carey March 4, 2015

    Im glad she doesn’t sit back and wait on the label to make moves like Ciara and Kelly Rowland do she gets them done on her own yes.

    • RowlandStones March 4, 2015

      B**** ciara yes …….Kelly tho really now you just playing yourself. You know good and damn well Kelly Rowland Don’t just sit on her ass. #tryagain #ciarayes

  10. Valerie March 4, 2015

    Lol why people talking about Beyonce? Give the flop her own praise and move on jeesh.

  11. #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 4, 2015

    DRAMATIC! DRAMATIC!
    LOVE IT!
    I agree with Sam. I didn’t really get why this video is being released today when the “All Hands On Deck” video is coming out very soon. This video should of been released instead of “Aquarius.”
    I like it although I would have loved to see additions to it but seeing this is coming off of her pockets, it’s a 9/10 for me because it made me feel more connected to the song than ever before.

    And p.s I like this new movement of people supporting new artists now! We of course all have an ESTABLISHED favorite artist but in an economy where BLACK new artists especially have to do something EXTRA to get attention for their music, really shows this is a good movement! 😀

  12. Mimi Carey March 4, 2015

    Rih fans coming for Mariah is comical

    • RihHive March 4, 2015

      Mariah = Flat Screen

      • Al March 4, 2015

        Rih =water on the brain #thod

  13. Iconic Cici March 4, 2015

    I was bored she’s a wack Ciara wannabe

  14. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

    Rihanna can hit the whistle register with ease! and she doesn’t need pre-recorded vocals like Malariah does #LeStruggle.

    https://youtu.be/MI1buxFDmyg?t=17s

  15. Priyanka March 4, 2015

    Not Ciara stans coming for tinashe when they’re on the same newbie level LMAO

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 4, 2015

      Lmao..

  16. Slay_Hive March 4, 2015

    OMG She is just so stale and boring. She lacks the “it” factor to ever be on Beyonce’s level. It’s just not going to happen. I don’t see it.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 4, 2015

      …. because to be an “IT” factor you’ll have to credit yourself for songs you didn’t write, steal musical and style ideas from other artists, and lean on a popular rapper for relevancy right? Boo, GET IT TOGETHER! LOL.

      • Slay_Hive March 4, 2015

        To have the “IT’ Factor you must know how to SANG above a pitiful struggle whisper, dance with RHYTHM and not like a stiff box shaped white girl from Idaho, write HITS, sell out arenas/stadiums WW and sell WAAAY over 17k in the first week! 😉
        .
        SN: What popular rapper did Bey have to lean on? If I’m not mistaken Bey had WW relevance during DC! Leaning on ASAP FLOP did nothing for TinFLOP! Obviously that formula doesn’t work for everyone.

  17. Mark111 March 4, 2015

    I couldn’t disagree with S A M anymore. THIS is the best song off the album, this and Wildfire. THIS is the direction she need to focus on. She been on 2 On TOO LONG! I guess it going to take a White artist to jack her sound for people to get this girl. Best R&B album last year by a LONG shot. I would even say best R&B album in the past decade.

    • Priyanka March 4, 2015

      Aquarius was good also. Both better get Grammy noms.

  19. I Stan For Myself March 4, 2015

    The comments in this blog are the only ones to hype this girl up like this. Her album was cute (nothing spectacular) and shes your typical pretty lightskim girl (nothing spectacular). I don’t think she has what it takes to stand out and break out as such but I respect her as an artist.

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

    “Best R&B album last year by a LONG shot. I would even say best R&B album in the past decade.”
    .

    BWAHAHAHA SIT! Her album was mediocre and sleep-inducing. I agree with Sam, she should focus more on 2 On esque type songs. That song is the only reason she is being noticed in the first place. She should really be working on a new album and over-saturate the market with urban/pop music like Rihanna did to get noticed. It may work for her too.

    • Mark111 March 4, 2015

        @B2B I smells a fleahive member! Wheres meth head’s flea repellent when you need it! Did Whitney sing all of the bodyguard soundtrack?

    Screaming at Markie Mark saying Aquarius is the best R&B album of the decade… The album had a couple of cute bops (which didn’t even sell over 20k first week) stop the reaching babe.

    • Mark111 March 4, 2015

      Name a r&b album that came out from now to 2005 that’s better. Don’t hate because Tin’s one album sh!ts on every album by Ciara. Ciara never had a full great album, and the only good album she have is The Evolution and that’s just a watered down Control.

      • Molly March 4, 2015

        That’s your opinion babe, but atleast you heard all of Ciaras album. Meanwhile I haven’t heard one Thotliyah album in full. Not really into dead people music.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

        My honest opinion Mark111, Tinashe is better than Aaliyah ever was. Ci-Error was a near second, before her career tumbled faster than Britneyraycyrus’s walls.

      • Molly March 4, 2015

        Ciara >Tinashe >Aaliyah tbh

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 4, 2015

        @BeyRihLiyah What was the essay question you illiterate fatherless höe?! Aaliyah had absolutely nothing until that Wendy Williams biopic came up and made her a hot topic. And sure the movie was good but it still is not convincing me she had any talent to stan(d) for! So bìtch stay out my reply box, on focus on finding your parents. Dumb Flea

      • Brian310 March 4, 2015

        Lmfao you b*****s are so delusional, Aaliyah was more talented and creative than both ESPECIALLY Ciara…her career is in the dumps because she doesn’t know what to do with herself musically and she always hops on a trend 2 years too late, and Tinashe can’t be better than the original and person she is inspired from the most.

      • Brian310 March 4, 2015

  25. RihHive March 4, 2015

    I really wanted to like this video I swear–Cuz i fux with Aquarius album; 2 On, Pretend, Feels Like Vegas and Bet are top of my shower playlist. However, I got lost watching this. I thought she was going for stranded and desperate then midway though the video she started giving me s***. The video lacked direction, theme and purpose. I can respect that you don’t want to do radio songs and follow the Miley/Iggy path and get tossed to the curb soon after but give us something we can appreciate.
    .
    I think the album tho is worthy of a Grammy R&B album of the year nod

        I knew your lame ass was going to pop up with this “when will LLAMA kii??!” s*** (that nickname stopped being funny in 2012, btw).
        Tinashe’s album hasn’t even sold 50K to date. Look up receipts before shilling out s***, bored f*****.

    • Brian310 March 4, 2015

      You got some nerve always coming for talented artist like Bey, Aaliyah and Mariah when you stan for Rihanna who can’t dance, sing, act, and as far as fashion goes(her saving grace) she is just finishing a fashion legacy that Aaliyah was starting.

    Too many people on here need toncome back to reality. Tinashes album was nowhere near mediocre. The album is universally critical acclaim and some of you give love clinging to that (Slay_Hive). The album isn’t just a bunch of cuts thrown together on an album to have a possible hit but a collect album that flows smoothly from beginning to end.

    • Slay_Hive March 4, 2015

      Why do you bum ass R****** fans love putting my name in your comments! You mad b****?…
      .
      OH & DEATH @ “The album isn’t just a bunch of cuts thrown together on an album to have a possible hit but a collect album that flows smoothly from beginning to end.”…….. Rihanna teas? 😀

      You’re right. Rihanna should take notes from Beyonce’s critically acclaimed album BEYONCE (85) 😉

      • Mark111 March 4, 2015

        lol, the pest are so dumb. “The album isn’t just a bunch of cuts thrown together on an album to have a possible hit” POSSIBLE HITS. Rihanna have albums full of hits and tho they may not be “bodies of work”, but they are hit albums. Thriller was a hot album and so was Control. But Bad and Rope were great bodies of work. But hey, Beyonce can’t do neither , so…

      • XXX March 5, 2015

        Beyonce has done both with IASF, Dangerously in Love and BEYONCE.

  36. BossB*tchBeyoncé March 4, 2015

    Kay I noticed this before but I wasn’t sure but now Im absolutely positive I stan(d) for talent is a troll. I think its that #teamTinasheStan. Its not really a navy. It just tries to get the navy vs hive thing going. It’s definitely a troll!!

  37. Sarah March 4, 2015

    TGJ, you don’t speak for everyone. The public would rather have Tinashe making music that speaks to her fans, not more songs like ‘2 On’.

  38. No favs, just here for the music March 4, 2015

    I don’t care much to watch this video, no offense at all because this song can hold it’s own without one.

    This is my absolute favorite song on her album. This girl is very beautiful and talented, I think she is the whole package. With that being said, I hope, I REALLY HOPE in time, she blows up like she deserves to.

    Also, I think it’s bad@** how ambitious she is, making her own videos and doing what she has to do to make it happen.

    Not gonna watch the video, but I do love this song and the album is fire.

  39. Incognegro March 4, 2015

    To be honest, I think the biggest factor is “how much you like the video”, but how much “you respect her for putting out the video on her own?” It’s a sad state of affairs where artists, who are supposed to be representws by major record labels have to create videos on their own time, but that is how the record industry is now. Trust me, If she had it her way, she would have spent the label’s money on a multi-million dollar video, but that is not the reality. On the visual tip I like the video, but on the artistic tip, I respext Tinashe for taking stock in her own talent, and I encourage other artists to do the same. How many artists do we feel had amazing albums, but no promotion? No videos? It’s because of money hungry record labels. Nowadays the independent route is the best, because you may not get the fancy videos (and debt to the record label, because they get all their money back) but you get to give your art the full appreciation and support that it deserves. Way to go Tinashe, that was a BOSS move and it will pay dividends for you in the future.

  40. LB March 4, 2015

    Mini Janet is slaying big time, I cannot wait for the Tinashe takeover. RCA better put a budget behind this girl, she is the future.

    Mzz Tinashe if ya nasty 🙂

    • TheElusiveLamb March 4, 2015

    Anywho, it seems to edited and even shot wrong. I appreciate the effort though. I hope the next few single push out videos within the next month.

  42. LB March 4, 2015

    LMAO Samantha is crazy,

    Why would Tinashe add to the already saturated of Pop/R&B (now dubbed urban) market when her and Jhene Aiko are revolutionizing R&B music?

    Tinashe and Jhene Aiko produced what is most likely some of the best artwork of R&B music since Mariah Carey’s Butterfly, their music sounds like no other.

    Why would she cheapen herself with what is hot on the radio when she has something even more amazing to offer.

    Tinashe is simply sticking to her artistry and as long as she continues pushing her amazing music, eventually people will catch on.

    Ask Taylor Swift or Bruno Mars if they had to resort to what is popular to be noticed, they stuck to their artistry and it paid off in the end. You’re delusional if you think Tinashe should cheapen her sound, she should stick to what she has created, people will catch on.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan March 4, 2015

      I agree with Jhene and Tinashe helping revolutionizing the new sound of R&B today.
      But Tinashe has always branded herself as a Rhythmic Pop artist so it falls into that category that Sam mentioned.
      The mixtapes and leaked songs from her are all examples of her incorporating pop.

    • A&R March 4, 2015

      Umm you tripping. Don’t dumb down the talent it takes to create a hit. The best artist are those who can create music that pushes the norms and also create some of the best popular music you’ve ever heard. Although singing / dancing is a form of art, there’s also business component to selling music. Lol This video probably wasn’t financed because her team and lable knows what shines most about her…. Her stage performance and vocals on up beat dance songs. I honestly like this song and was shocked I did… Bc I too want to see Tinashe dance and sing… It’s effortless. I appreciate this side of her but like any other relationship I think she needs to gradually give us who she is. And pay attention to what comes natural as opposes to what she wants to come. Cool song… But another voice could’ve done it better. As of now she’s not a vocalist and her strengths deserve to be played up as she continues to build a solid fan base. Dance and sing while giving us hints of the other layers, until album three… Then reveal more of of this and ppl will already respect one side and be ready to fully digest the other. And I only say this bc although she’s artsy it’s not her strong suit. She appears to be the girl that’s drawn to that but hasn’t ebodied it yet. She’s young so I’m sure she will as she mature.

    • credits March 5, 2015

      revolutionizing? The beat sounds like James blake.

  43. CherylSoldierr March 4, 2015

    Cute song, she’s very talented.

      Yay boo boo! Thanks

    That was creative THO

  45. Casual-T March 4, 2015

    When I began reading this article, I could only admire this woman’s hustle in getting her own video shot. And when I read the hate in Sam’s post, I reflexively got myself ready to like this. Then I watched this boring, though artsy, video and listened to this slow and tiresome song. I agree with Sam’s assessment — NO! Her money would have been better spent on a more interesting video for a more commercial song.

  46. RICHIE_RICH March 5, 2015

    I love her!!!!!!!! Great album

  47. credits March 5, 2015

    To the people who stay current in what is going on in music….This song is a James Blake rip off. Am i the only one who hears it? This beat sounds like his song ‘wilhem scream.’ But her vocals are not eerie and hypnotizing enough to get the same effect that james does. But hey, maybe Tinashe is inspired by him which would mean that she has good taste. As for the video, she gets points for originality with the pilot gear and all in that beautiful dessert accompanied by the rewinding effect.

  48. ~The Arcade~ March 5, 2015

    I’ve lost interest in Tinashe 🙁
