New Video: Tinashe – ‘Player (ft. Chris Brown)’

Published: Monday 2nd Nov 2015 by Sam

Tinashe turns all the way up in the video ‘Player.’

The Chris Brown assisted cut is the lead single from the 23-year-old hotly anticipated sophomore album ‘Joyride’ which now has a confirmed release date of January 8th next year.

In an era where streams impact chart positions, Tinashe and her RCA comrade deliver a clip with ample replay value. Indeed, they dance up a storm and get dangerously close – which only adds to the titillation.

What are you waiting for with the dynamic duo in action after the jump…

Simple yet stylised, the visual is wholly engaging. Instead of going the convoluted story route, it instead sells the song’s lyrics through performance to applaudable effect.

      I’m not fond of him either, but I can’t help but notice that he’s been growing a little cake back there. However, he looks so drugged up and strung out, that I keep thinking that he doesn’t wash that area in the shower. The things I think about!

      • shakira stan November 3, 2015

        Lol these f****** though. I’ve meet him twice ,he is a very neat dude

    @Annalise, sis, I can’t with you anymore! All that dragging is getting me dragged over here. Go easy on me sometimes, hun. I’m fragile and I bruise easily.


    Tinashe did a great job like I expected her to. I could’ve done without the touching, rubbing and caressing with you know who, but if it’s gonna get the song to chart, then om all for her getting the job done. I REALLY hope this song charts because I seriously don’t want her to get dropped from her label..especially after she tributed the Queen at the BET Awards, in which she and MJ accepted. I use Tinashe and now that Natalie LA Rose is gone, I need her to win again.

      LMAOO I was thinking the same thing about chris, he doesn’t seem like the type to OD on personal hygiene.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 2, 2015

        Lol! Indeed! Love the avi too.

    SLAYED my edges off once again.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 2, 2015

      you get impressed to easily all of your faves videos is trash hoeee

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 2, 2015

        Let’s not even get into how innovative and iconic the “Red/Self-titled” album era’s videos were. I mean slay to slay from hair, makeup, clothing, choreography, everything! No one and I mean NO ONE can replicate the success of Aaliyah’s music videos from her last official era.

  6. No favs, just here for the music November 2, 2015

    It was going great but then somewhere in the middle it just switched onto a generic pop sound?? And I don’t really care for Chris Brown at all.

    Son in conclusion the first half of this song slayed lol

    The video is cute too

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (“Player” Music Video Comes Out Today) November 2, 2015

      This!!!! 😀

  7. Navy Captain November 2, 2015

    I loved the video and the song as well. My only complaint is that the mortal combat type of play in the video just disappeared after the second male dancer…so did she win or nah??

  8. Trina Rozera November 2, 2015

    I love Tinashe and the performance elements of this were well done. I just wished the big finale would’ve been a routine with Chris (or at least something that involved him actually moving) although the digital gameboard separating them was a neat special effect. I realize it’s supposed to be a showcase of HER moves, but I think they could’ve played it in a way to still keep the spotlight on her while using him as more than just a prop.

  9. Slay_Hive November 2, 2015

    UGH!! Every time I try to like this girl she screws it up. this song is so fuckkingg wack, words can not explain. She needs help. She has the potential but her music is beyond bland and her dancing is stiffly unappealing to me. We really need some new fresh black talent.

    • ????Queen Molly???? November 2, 2015

      Lmao clock her sis. This girl is trash and nothing but a Beyonce/Ciara wannabe.

  10. Dev November 2, 2015

    The song and video is quite forgettable considering all of the dancing. These Chris Brown colabo’s don’t seem to be setting it off, i had the same issue with Body on Me

    • ImKing November 2, 2015

      This is a good pop/rhythmic song for the radio. Chris is just blackballed in the industry, so no matter what he puts out, it will not get the recognition it deserves. Can you believe he only have 1 grammy? The industry is terrible and the mediocre artists continue to win.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 2, 2015

        Is he not a mediocre artist himself? His recent offerings having been nothing but sexual and mediocre, like Trey Songz, so he gets back what he put out there. Now, a REAL artist that needs more Grammy’s is Ciara…and in POSITIVE she’ll win one next year for “I Bet”. Congrats, Ci Ci!

  11. ????Queen Molly???? November 2, 2015

    Forgettable tbh

    • Can’t stand basic @ss insecure bum b#^*#’s November 2, 2015

      If you meant Ciara’s career, then yes, definitely forgettable. Also it’s sort of like your existence in real life, that’s why you try SO HARD to fit in on a blog, how pathetic.

  12. StrawberryMuffin24 November 2, 2015

    Tinashe slayed she did 5 different type of dances in one video I loved it she slays everything she does I see why they mad JOYRIDE is gonna be dope as fawk too I guess the haters will stay mad oop!lol

    Tinashe has her own style so stay mad jealous bish!

    • ????Queen Molly???? November 2, 2015

      Glad to know tinashes only two fans enjoyed the video ki

  13. BeyRihLiyah November 2, 2015

    YAWN zzzzzzz why is she still trying the 2 on ship been sailed

  14. StrawberryMuffin24 November 2, 2015

    Tinashe is hella talented she doesn’t have to try if you got it you just got it and she has it i’m ready for her new album!

  15. @JanetCIARA_ November 2, 2015


    • ????Queen Molly???? November 2, 2015

      Sis this was the most basic and tired video i’ve ever seen.

  16. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 2, 2015

    Miley’s “Dooo It!” Is finally charting somewhere. Kii! That mess took long enough…but then again it didn’t have any radio support, so good job for her! I can’t knock her hustle.

  17. Fresh Navi November 2, 2015

    She slayed me. The bey fans should be gone, this gurl is too lit & yah fave cannot

  18. StrawberryMuffin24 November 2, 2015

    THE BES FEMALE VIDEO IN 2015 for me i really love everything about it I love how she showcased alot of different dances she can do!

    I love battle 1,3 and the dance with the girl the bonus was her and Chris s*** scenes I loved it! I love the game concept!

  19. eric November 2, 2015

    I was liking the video until Chris appeared with absolutely nothing to add to the song and video. Chris was awesome on his One Hell of a Nite tour, but some things he just doesn’t need to be a part of.

  20. DIABETES UNBOTHERED November 2, 2015

    Seems like WEIGHT HEIGHT & YOUTH play the biggest hand in success these days. From heavyweights ADELElephant THICKyonce & PIGanna to flop like crackhouse BRown, short arriane grande, Cerror whose built like a latter, & tinashe whos built like a rail.

    • @JanetCIARA_ November 2, 2015

      And what are you built like hunny? A bucket of butter biscuits?

  21. HALF AMAZIN November 2, 2015

    Song nor video make sense. She wants to crossover but puts Fist Brown on the track??? He’s black balled by mainstream. She needs to fire her team

  22. Can’t stand basic @ss insecure bum b#^*#’s November 2, 2015

    I see Ciara’s only two remaining stan’s are pressed, I mean I would be to, if my fav only relevance is clinging to athletic d*’#, “The same d#!* she intern has herself”…tuck tuck.

    • RealMusicPassion November 2, 2015

      First off your a troll,and to come up hear and talk complete nonsense about Ciara is makin you look like a bitter hater.Ciara has a grammy,has sold 23 MILLION records worldwide,9 Top 40 hits on the billboard hot 100, not including her features,a number 1 on the billboard hot 100 & Billboard 200,4 albums in the top 10,and fans that have supported her through motherhood.Tinashe has 1 hit single,1 top 20 album,4 mixtapes, and 1 BMI award. My Point? Tinashe’s a great artist,but she’s a newcomer,and Ciara’s a veteran. Don’t sit here and try to validate her by discrediting another artist.

  23. RihYonce November 2, 2015

    Tinashe & Chris slayed this video!! Can’t wait for Chris album this month & Tinashe’s in January , I don’t understand the disliking in Chris brown smh but oh well

  24. Rihboy November 2, 2015

    This would have been better if the venues and wardrobe changes for each opponent. Also she was trying so hard to look like a techniqued dancer that it came off bland and uninspiring. Chris browns novelty has worn off. Slapping him onto every up and coming artist song is getting tired. I like this song but it’s definitely forgettable. Very pretty girl with the right equipment, she just needs a better team and catalogue.

    • Rihboy November 2, 2015


    • coolness November 3, 2015

      I agree she’s pretty and talented girl but her music is a little off because I think there’s some confusion in regards to her marketing. I do kinda dig this track though. You’re right about the whole slapping CB on a track just for convenience. When people talk about the Chris Brown stimulus package being a real thing, I wonder why singles with him as a guest feature don’t really go anywhere on the BB Hot 100. Perhaps they’re referring to the Urban Charts? Good luck to both artists with their upcoming releases.

  25. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 2, 2015

    Ciara’s clearly going to win a Grammy next year for an R&B category for “I Bet” since it was the only R&B single to go gold for the year! You, Ci Ci! I hope she looks cute and has her man by her side for her big moment! “I Bet” Mama Jackie and Swag Daddy Harris will be proud of their little girl!

    • Lover of music November 2, 2015

      Grammys are not based on sales!

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 3, 2015

        I know,but it’s no longer about quality either. She has the best chance at winning as long as Bey isn’t in the same category as her.

    • A Rob November 12, 2015

      Don’t forget Classic Man by Jidenna & Earned It – The Weeknd both platinum

  26. shakira stan November 3, 2015

    Another trashy song… Next!

  27. JMar November 3, 2015

    people love to talk s*** about ciara for years but yet she still have a record deal still have sold out tours top ambassador 23 millions of records sold world wide ciara still have a strong fan base people love to her perform even u haters want admit u are a fan as well cause if u wasnt u would be keep checking for her on every blog site.

  28. cocobutta November 3, 2015

  30. A&R November 3, 2015

    Good video..
    Pretty girl..
    Decent voice..
    Good dance..
    Basic music…
    This song is not it.

    It’s sad when a good video does nothing for the song. Tin, figure this out…. Soon!

  31. Barb-wire November 3, 2015

    I mean, I guess…

  32. coolness November 3, 2015

    Oh and how the hell do Chris Brown and Tinashe – two talented dancers – collaborate on a video and there are barely any shots with them DANCING?!!! I guess he’s saving the best for last when he and his true female counterpart, Ciara, will slay souls when they finally decide do a video together. *Watches their 2008 BET Awards performance for the 100th time*.

  33. What now November 3, 2015

    It was cute

  34. Really(Beehiveallday November 3, 2015
