Tinashe – Midnight Sun

Tinashe, is quite the artist. Actress, dancer, former girl-band member and currently one of our favourite R&B singer/songwriters. She evokes a nostalgia of R&B’s golden days, yet brings something new to the genre. bringing more melancholia to her songs than some of the hedonistic-centric tracks around today. Midnight Sun has us totally captivated, her honey vocals ooze unabashed desire, reminiscent of Cassie but less innocent-sounding. Her attraction “to darker vibes and darker moods” is also apparent as the song switches to an outro evocative of Massive Attack’s Paradise Circus. Fans include collaborating producers Jacques Greene and Ryan Hemsworth, and Schoolboy Q who’s contribution on their track 2 On puts him alongside Lil Wayne as one of the few rappers to rap about cunnilingus. If you are as captivated by Tinashe as we are, download her excellent Black Water mixtape, including the phenomenally sultry Vulnerable featuring Travi$ Scott. This girl, keep an eye on her.
