Tinashe Brings The Heat For ‘Dazed’

Published: Tuesday 24th Nov 2015 by Sam

With January around the corner, so too is the release of Tinashe‘s sophomore album ‘Joyride.’

Preceded by singles ‘Player’ and ‘Party Favors,’ the LP’s campaign is cranking up a notch with a slew of media spots – the latest being an edgy spread in Dazed Magazine. 

In an industry where it’s not only difficult to establish a brand, but also a challenge to make folk care about it, 23-year-old Tinashe is succeeding at both.

As the shots below further drive home, Miss Kachingwe is positioning herself as a sweet, but street, eclectic but not meek type.

It’ll be interesting to see if she can parlay her strong identity into album sales when ‘Joyride’ pulls into stores on January 8th.

For now, though, peep more stunning snaps below…

    Such a beautiful girl, just wish her career would take off. There’s enough room for her Rihanna and Beyonce to all shine together.

      She keeps releasing singles and refuses to properly PROMOTE the actual single.

      So she’s all over the place

      • Missy1 November 24, 2015

        yes girl yes, yes yes.


      • Faf November 24, 2015

        I thought it was FKA twigs

      • bonBon489 November 25, 2015

        Whats gonna happen is this poor girl is gonna fail.

        She and her record label just won’t promote a “hit” single and promote it until it climbs Itunes.

        They release song after song, video after video and the public can’t focus on her single. The record company is gonna get tired of pumping money into this girl with NO returns.

        She probably has 6 months.

      • Liam November 25, 2015

        Actually she’s the one funding her own videos and hustling at clubs and other gigs promoting both player and party favours…there’s videos on YouTube and stuff! Her hustle is there but RCA is a crap label….the way she’s working right now she should go indie and keep her own coins imo

    • Lana Fan Disappointed By Honeymoon November 24, 2015

      This whole spread gives me fka twigs teas.

  2. ?Queen Molly? November 24, 2015

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

      I’m standing for your avi. Looking like a goddess or the queen of sheba. She better serve…..as usual.

      • ?Queen Molly? November 25, 2015

        Thank you baby ?

    • Lana Fan Disappointed By Honeymoon November 25, 2015

      Since when have you been a hive ? I thought you wee in Z Squad?

      • ?Queen Molly? November 25, 2015

        Why is everyone so obsessed with who im stanning for these days?

  3. 4everBrandy_Ci November 24, 2015

    I see you Tinashe!!!!

  4. What now November 24, 2015

    She reminds mmuah of Aaliyah 4 Page Letter in that tree. Very beautiful. girl. These pics r dark, but very good photoshoot .

  5. #JACKIE November 24, 2015

    That’s a cute pic of her licking her career in the third pic.

    • ?Queen Molly? November 24, 2015

      Ki… You still pressed sis?

  6. @JanetCIARA_ November 24, 2015

    She looks dumb, demented and possessed.
    Somebody go help this attention whoore.

    • #JACKIE November 24, 2015

      Kii the struggle is real

  7. StrawberryMuffin24 November 24, 2015

    I love it TINASHE is amazing! I love all her music i’m ready for JOYRIDE already I know the album will be fawking EPIC Come thru Tinashe!

  8. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 24, 2015

    Ayye I see you baby girl, I see you. Yo Tinashe is trying real hard to make it big. I love her determination. She can now be my 2nd fave after Rih

  9. 4everBrandy_Ci November 24, 2015

    I see these Ciara fans being fools. I don’t understand the hate for this chick but hey she’s doing something RIGHT. If you don’t like her then keep it moving. I love Ciara to the end of time but Tee is my other sis too. I wish people would get their head out their asses and let these artists do them because the music is all that matters.

    • #JACKIE November 24, 2015

      Sis I honestly don’t have a problem with her. She’s not my cup of tea but she doesn’t bother me, but her funky ass stans are always shading Ciara like she has accomplished a quarter of what CiCi has.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

        Don’t worry, y’all. We ALL know the damage and slayage that debut album did. A little young girl from Atlanta had those so called icons scared and Shakira g in their boots. I’ll never forget it. And J. Lo better NEVER fix her mouth to talk s*** about Ciara because “I’m Goin’ In” on that lip syncing ass.

      • 4everBrandy_Ci November 25, 2015

        I see what’s been going on and yeah there will always be ignroant fans from other artists. It’s this one particular Tee fan well…… STAN that shades Ciara constantly and that person has been showing their true colors since day one. However, I f*** with #TeamTinashe and the ones I f*** with are cool with me so they don’t have a problem with me being a Ciara fan. I just want Tinashe to get the success she deserves in her own right. She’s on her way.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

      Mark, you gotta admit that Ci looked so fine. “I Bet” she mad you wanna have a “Body Party” with her. Shoot, she had me feeling that way.

  10. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 24, 2015

    These pics are weird af…. sorry, like wtf is going on. I like her but she needs a different label and direction.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

      Hey!!!! “I miss you…like everyday!” Do you know why the technical issue that recently occurred took so long to fix? I hope you’re gonna at least give “Anti” one listen, even if you don’t buy it. Just give her a chance. You might like a song or two.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 25, 2015

        Hey sis! They said it was a server upgrade but everything seems exactly the same as before (IMO Sam is probably paying for the domain on a monthly basis, and forgot about this months payment KII!).
        Hmmm who knows.. I have Apple Music so I just might stream it and listen to it at the gym.. ?

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

        Lol! I was PISSED as hell! I thought my phone was the issue until I realized that my laptop was doing the same. Anyway, I’m so ready for new Bey music. I’d love for her and Jay to have a little boy next.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 25, 2015

        God willing they will have another baby, I just hope B takes it easy and does it when she isn’t promoting anything. She had complications with her other pregnancy, so I hope she takes the right amount of time off to take care of herself and the next heir to throne. I just hope the next name isn’t too out there… tbh we all thought Blue was gonna be called Brooklyn lol.

  11. BeyRihLiyah November 25, 2015

    licking toilets lmao tunafish is so lame

  12. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

    Okay! I can see it. It’s different, weird, eccentric, and free-spirited. It fits her personality well….and I LOVE how she’s so articulate and we’ll-spoken for such a you g woman. I’m still waiting on “Player” to chart, though. This is crazy how her label gives no f**** about her career. There’s no reason why she should have to pay for her own music videos and be signed to a label. At this point, she has to make herself happen because her label has clearly exhausted all their efforts.

  13. coolness November 25, 2015

    Pretty and talented girl but I’m not feeling these pics butthis is Dazed magazine and they’re known for edgy shoots. I think one of the main things holding her back is her marketing. One moment she’s giving me Aaliyah and the next she’s FKA Twigs – there’s no consistency.

    • BCinKS November 25, 2015

      So right. You can’t be her fan because you don’t know if she’s going to go alternative R&B, urban pop, or contemporary R&B. Then she might be in 90s outfits, whips and chains, or licking toilets. Choose an image and sound and ride that out until people want something different. Look at Adele. She looks exactly the same and her new album is 21 part II, but people love it. She’s not changing until her fanbase wants her to, not because she wants to experiment.

  14. Barb-wire November 25, 2015

    Lmao gurl bye

  15. ?Queen Molly? November 25, 2015

    Annalise is always spilling TEA kii ☕

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig November 25, 2015

      LMAO!!! This site is ah MESS. I peeped game long time ago…. especially when I called David out on that Beyonce post, and he started creating troll names to address me. Now that gay charcoal skillet midnight-sky lookin niqqa is deleting all of my comments an entire month later. BLOOP!

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 25, 2015

        Yes!…..with those “If You Leave” lyrics. I love that song. One of the best R&B collabs I’ve ever heard…..and it’s Grammy worthy.

  16. Anti (hives scared of R8) November 25, 2015

    The second pic looks like Rihanna’s “What Now” video.

  17. StrawberryMuffin24 November 25, 2015

    I love it It’s different and edgy just like her new album JOYRIDE will be! I love how she’s licking the lighter cause her new music will be straight flames so fiyah!

    Come thru Tinashe! I don’t give a fawk what haters say i love this chick she makes great music, she’s a song-writer,dancer,good singer and performer and I cant wait for her new album JANUARY 15!

  18. Misdamenor November 26, 2015

    Girl you so different!
