New Song: Tinashe – ‘Genius of Love’

Published: Tuesday 23rd Feb 2016 by Rashad

As the date rolls nearer to the release of her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Joyride,’ stageblazer Tinashe taps DJ Cassidy for a remake of the Tom Tom Club classic ‘Genius of Love.’

Remembered most for its sample in Mariah Carey‘s hit ‘Fantasy,’ the tune finds a touch-up courtesy of a Target ad starring the young songstress.

Did their remake do the tune justice?  You tell us below:


In other Tinashe news, the burgeoning diva is set to embark on her “Joyride World Tour” on Feb. 28th in Minneapolis.  Click here to see if she’ll be coming to a city near you.

    I’m sorry who??? 2-3 years later we’re still asking that question..

    • Annalise February 23, 2016

      And we’re all still asking why Nicholas couldn’t get a platinum album after a whole 2 years of promotion. Much like your fave’s chances of going platinum without streams, I don’t see it.

        do your research before u try to shade nicki her pinkprint album went double platinum when will tinashade flop ass.

      This girl does have talent.

      But. She is plagued with too many single releases in a short time. Her “people” release 3-4 singles and “hope” for a hit.

      Look at the Adele/Taylor blueprint – release a QUALITY single and promote the hell out of it. They are going to destroy this girls career. 3 years in and only 1 hit.

      She’s in trouble.

    Meanwhile Tinashe is getting money and is the next lightskin-BillGates-in the making. When will Beyonce?

    • rosy February 23, 2016

  6. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 23, 2016

    Wow! Everyone loves to sample Mariah. “Fantasy” is such a classic song, especially the remix with ODB. I swear she has one of the best pop discographies out of all the legends. Can’t wait for the “Sweet, Sweet Fantasy Tour”, even though she’s not bringing it to North America. ?

    • ? February 23, 2016

      But the song itself was a sample

  7. Rima February 23, 2016

    Flop #3 ?

  8. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga February 23, 2016

    That picture is not cute.Tinashe is a vvveeeeeerrryyyy preety gal but that picture is a no no

  9. #TeamTinashe Stan February 23, 2016

    Love it. This is for a Target ad by the way. Sounds fun. Can’t wait for for this tour!!

  10. MUSICHEAD February 23, 2016

    Trashe is so determined to make it that you have to applaud her efforts. I mean absolutely no one born before 1996 is checking for her yet she gets up everyday, does her best Aaliyah impersonation and pretends she’s a star. That’s gotta be a talent all by itself!

    • Scandal February 23, 2016

      Oh the same way that “Brandy pretends that she’s still relevant 4 flop albums in, and a flop show” oh ok, I see what you mean.

  11. ?Meteorite☄ February 23, 2016

    Daahhling No!

  12. ?Meteorite☄ February 23, 2016

    Well…if this was done intentionally as a market ploy to have her version compared to Mariah, then job done. Now people will have their eyes on her, but will they be curious enough to look up her music and subscribe to her brand is yet to be determined. Or perhaps she just really loved the orgial version and wanted to sing it? Hell idk.

    Wow, based off her first album, and her previous released singles this year, I would not have expected her to make something like this. Smh. People need to stop trying to use the formula of their album needing a number 1 lead or hit single. Just promote the hell out of the song. She on a major label. Its plenty of songs that would not be what that was (for other artist) if not shelved down our ears. With that said she should have stuck with “Party Favors” and Player (even tho I don’t like “Player”) and Promoted like it was her last! She knows this! The girl was indie before. Smh.

  15. Sam February 23, 2016

    This just shows how basic her voice is. No-one is saying that she cannot sing its just a tone we have heard many times before.

  17. What now February 23, 2016

    It’s kind of a no for me. On one hand I’ve always wondered why no one but MC never sampled that song more frequently, but now I see why. It is extremely hard to flip successfully. Since it is for an ad, I guess I don’t have much to say.

  18. 4everBrandy_Ci February 23, 2016

    Tinashe is slaying!!!!! I really like the record and she did good!
