Tinashe is making quite the name for herself thanks to a potent potion of catchy tracks and dynamite performances.
New release ‘Superlove’ sees her excel on both fronts.
Not resting on her laurels, though, the rising star has hit the promotional trail in support of the track, which was produced by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream.
During a recent chat, she was quizzed on apparent Beyonce comparisons and offered an interesting response.
Excerpts after the jump…
JET: When you first started out there were a lot of Beyoncé comparisons – is that scary? Is that good company to be in?
Tinashe: It’s obviously a lot of pressure because she’s an amazing artist but I think you can only just take it as a compliment. I think she’s an incredible woman that I definitely look up to in a lot of ways.
JET: Have you met her?
Tinashe: I haven’t met her, but I’ve been to her show like five times. I opened up for her but I didn’t meet her. We shared a stage. And I worked with all her people – her dancers were my dancers and her choreographers were my choreographers, her tour manager is my tour manager but we’ve never crossed paths. But it’s gonna happen!

Loving the camaraderie. Although we must say that we’ve yet to hear of these “comparisons.”
Levels of success aside, it’s clear Beyonce blazes a lane that is altogether different from Tinashe’s and vice versa. One skews more Tina/MJ, while the other graduated from the school of Janet/Ciara.
Still, both ladies boast an individuality that renders them compelling.
