Preview: Tinashe’s New Song ‘Flame’

Published: Tuesday 14th Mar 2017 by Rashad

After tiding fans over with a 15-track mixtape, ‘Nightride,’ in place of her long-awaited sophomore LP, ‘Joyride,’ it appears singer/songwriter Tinashe is ready to put “wheels up” and roll full speed ahead toward the release of her second album.

Evidence of this can be found in ‘Flame’ – her hot new single set for launch on March 16th.  And, while word has it the tune will serve as the first official single from ‘Joyride,’ what is certain is T took to Instagram to share a snippet of the Stargate & Bloodpop-produced cut.

Keen to get a taste?  It awaits below.

Cold in the night when I hold you close. Searching your eyes, but you’re gone like a ghost…. #FLAME 3/16

    I HATE SNIPPETS!!!! Just release the track or don’t do anything at all…. anyway I was really hoping for another r&b/urban smash from her but I see her team is persistent with the pop records

    • Danzou March 14, 2017

      who says it’s pop? you literally only heard a snip.

      • Black power March 14, 2017

        People on Twitter who have heard it said it was a pop record. Thanks

      • Jasmine March 15, 2017

        It’s pop. Just because you are too slow to see that don’t hate on others for not being that slow.

      don’t do this

    • *Sugar March 14, 2017

      Girl would never do what, advance past the 90’s lol.

      By the way, word on the street is that Brandy was the one who hit Ciara in that Car accident a couple of days ago ? Looks like she’s trying to up her body count.

      • Jamie March 14, 2017

        Nah that won’t Brandy. If so, Ciara would be in heaven. Brandy comes for blood.

    • Hold this L March 14, 2017

      Wait, not a Brandy has-been fan throwing shade LOL.

    • Jasmine March 15, 2017

      @4everbrandystan Stop picking on Brandy, setting her up for stupid comments on posts that are not about her desperado. I’m sure Brandy would not appreciate that.

    It’s definitely Pop! Not what I wanted but I am very open to what this young tenacious talent has to offer.

    I cannot believe this, 3yrs ago “2 On” was her only SMASH solo single to date but this FLOP is still around and keeps getting MAJOR bookings.
    1)ANTM Finale Appearance
    2) Kentucky Derby National Anthem
    3) WrestleMania 33 Performance (Over 100, 000 ppl in attendance)
    4)Empire – She has been announced for the upcoming episodes

        No lie, I was gearing up to go in on how the snippets looks nothing like the cover art and how I seems like another fail but then I watched the live performance of Company. It reminded me of how much potential this girl has. She could be the next big thing… if she stop being studborn.

    Another flop…..

    • JAY March 14, 2017

      Like tamars last two failing to go gold even combining the units?

      • Tamartian#1 March 14, 2017

        And they both outsold Tinashit and were Grammy nominated so come again?

      • JAY March 14, 2017

        They flopped like tinashes did and youre calling her a flop. i’ll take tina over a dusty muppet any day tho.

      • Tamartian#1 March 14, 2017

        Have a seat. Tamars vocals slay Tinashits squeals any f****** day. #OneHitWonder

    • Kay M. March 14, 2017

      Wait, is a tamar stan calling the pot kettle black?? I need answers bish becuz I am kii’ing rn.

      • Tori March 14, 2017

        Tamar has more under belt, Tinashe has “2 On” and Ciara vocals. Yeah I’ll take Tamar any day. Tinashe is cool but hell no! STOP!

    • Jasmine March 15, 2017

      @Tamartian No reason to hate and Tamar fans should not be calling anyone a flop. Tinashe has only been in the game 2 years and is worth a cool 6 million while Tamar been in the game near 30 years (since 1990) and is only worth 10 million. Tinashe has beauty and youth in her favor while Tamar barely has an album left before she is forced into old-age music retirement. Now who is flopping again?

    • SMH March 15, 2017

      Why is a Tamar stan even in this conversation?

  6. 4everBrandy_Ci March 14, 2017

    These bitter Tinashe “undercover” fans lowkey are checking for her. It’s hilarious people go out of their way to tear people down. Tinashe has a creative outlook on her records. This single deserves ALL the support!!!!! #TeamTinashe

  7. SMH March 15, 2017

    I’m totally here for Tinashe. Slow and steady wins the race, not instant desperation. Tinashe is going to win, can’t wait for the album.

  8. NtsWNow at uyoufr best game way tuesidnz March 16, 2017

    She should do a remix to one of her song feat a rapper
