American singer-songwriter, dancer and record producer Tinashe has released her new song, “Naturally”, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Tinashe’s debut single, “2 On” (featuring Schoolboy Q; produced by Mustard), reached number one on the Rhythmic airplay chart, and peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Tinashe’s debut studio album, Aquarius (2014), was noted by music critics as one of the most “solid” debuts by a new female artist in years. The album garnered her nominations for Soul Train and BET Awards.
The singer’s collaboration with Snakehips and Chance the Rapper, “All My Friends”, won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song in 2016. The same year, Tinashe appeared on Britney Spears’ single “Slumber Party”, which topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.
Tinashe’s second studio album, Nightride (2016), reached number eight on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in the US. Joyride (2018), her third studio album, peaked at number 58 on the Billboard 200 chart and reached number six on the UK R&B Albums chart.
On May 28, 2021, Tinashe posted a cryptic teaser for her fifth studio album on her social media accounts. The teaser included the caption “333”, which was speculated to be the title for her fifth album, along with a new logo designed by Franc Fernández. The album’s lead single, “Pasadena”, was released on June 4, and features American rapper Buddy.
On July 9, Tinashe released a new single “Bouncin”. Following the release, Tinashe announced the 333 Tour on July 12, which began in September 2021. On July 22, Tinashe announced the release date of 333 as August 6, 2021, and released the song “I Can See the Future” the same day. The album was met with positive critical reception.
The song and music video for Bouncin gathered a lot of media attention, with the likes of Little Mix and Doja Cat expressing their love for the song.
Tinashe was the first artist to be announced to be featured on the rebooted MTV Cribs, where she showed her Los Angeles house in the Hollywood hills including her home studio. The year ended with the announcement of her new Facebook Watch show Choreo Cage Fight, premiering December 3.
Tinashe was also named in Forbes 30 Under 30 list for 2022.
