    Where to begin from? Tinashe Kachingwe, AKA Tinashe, AKA Godnashe, doesn't need no introductions. She's one of the most talented, brilliant, hard-working singers/songwriters/producers of the next generation, with a great ear for tunes and a good eye for aesthetics. She's also everybody's favorite Bubbling Under Queen by the way.

    Sooooooo, which better way to celebrate all that than a brutal fight to the death? The reason I've gathered you all here on this lovely day is not because the dungeon started stinking (well, also that, it's not a good look for the neighbours, y'know?), but because you have to rate this incredible young woman's complete solo catalogue she's worked on in the course of just over 5 years, and crown one track the ultimate Tinashe song for eons to come until the next rate takes place sometime in 2019.

    We'll go through everything, our journey encompassing: starting the guided tour from her first three mixtapes (In Case We Die; Reverie; Black Water); making a stop at her first major label studio album (Aquarius); driving through the highway of her fourth mixtape (Amethyst); stopping to pee at her numerous feature ventures (don't make me list them plz); and stepping off the bus when we get to Nightride, just before the vehicle mysteriously goes up in flames ([​IMG]).

    I could have decided to do it all by myself, but no, in the name of likes democracy, I'm going to share this responsibility with y'all, with a warning: it's gonna be a tough and thankless job, so take part at your own risk (but still take part, Haus of @Kuhleezi have some dragons that need feeding). Without further ado, here's the list of all our contestants:

    A few clarifications:​
    • Tinashe is the true Multiplatform Queen, which means there isn't a single place where you can find her whole discography. You'll just have to suck it up and flip between DatPiff (100% legal btw)/YouTube/Spotify/iTunes/whatever you please
    • The numbers are all messed up because I've deleted all the interludes, as it would be completely unfair to rate them against fully-formed songs
    • Re: the Extras section. My criterion was relevancy, which means only songs released after her departure from the Stunners, released as standalone "singles" (no album tracks like Dollar Signs) where she has a significant enough part (no background vocals nonsense à la Body Language), and she's crucial in the existence of the song itself (= no remixes whatsoever, including, gasp, Slumber party)
    Last but not least, THE RULES (which I may or may not have unashamedly copied from some other rate):

    Oh, and don't you dare not drowning me with tons and tons of questionable commentary. Or you'll get my very own version of


    You have approx 6 weeks from now, meaning August 13, 23:59 BST to impress me and save yourself from elimination (and skull-dragging). Good luck, and don't

    OPTIONAL MINIGAME: THE INTERLUDE EDITION (what a tragic ass title but it's 2:32 AM lemme live!)

    So, I said we weren't gonna rate the interludes right? I was lying! Well, to be fair, we aren't going to rate them in the main game. But they're definitely an essential part in Tinashe's work, making their first appearance as early as In Case We Die. Taking into account we're pretty much all hunties here, and we'd rate all our relatives using the Eurovision system if only we could, I presnt yu da rulz:​
    • Choose your 10 favourite interludes and rate them using the Eurovision scale (12 to your favourite, then 10, then 8-1)
    • This side game is OPTIONAL: if you decide to take part, send me your votes (together with the main votes or not, doesn't really matter) by August 13 at noon BST (so that on closing night I'll reveal the minigame results and the proper rate will get started the next day)
    • To qualify as an interlude a song needs to be under 2 minutes and/or being "chorusless" (a song, however short, having a chorus repeated at least twice is automatically excluded from this and considered a proper song)

  3. Yas. Let's hope the PJ rate curse comes through and she releases Joyride halfway through the reveal.
     
  4. FUCK YES.

  6. you deleted Indigo Child?

  7. Like this post if you're giving Binaural Test 12 points in the interlude rate.
     
  8. Bish you better add Indigo Child back. That was in contention for my 11!

  9. Not when:

    *ice clinks* *lighter sound* *deep breathe out* "OH shiiiit I'm WAY 2 On"

    is coming to sIay in a club near you
     
  10. Yas. Count me in. This will also get me familiar with her first mixtapes.

  11. I questioned this a lot, because I know how much love it gets over here. But then I just knew 98% of the commentary would include some variation of "why is this just an interlude???", and we still can't ignore it's only 1 minute and 30 seconds long after all. If I included it, I'd have to include some of the others as well, and the side rate would be entirely pointless if it wasn't enough already.

    I'm sure it's going to have its time to shine among the other interludes.
     
  12. Then why you running this rate???

    I'll try to rustle up some votes xx
     
  13. High Speed Chase!

  15. All of us: @Kuhleezi what are you doing why isn't Indigo Child in the main list of songs? Why'd you make this decision?

    @Kuhleezi:

  16. Okay. I'm going to say it.

    The Guilt Trips version of "One For Me"/"1 for Me" is better than the version on Black Water and should be included in the rate.

  17. When going through possible entries for the extras section, the good sis Ryan Hemsworth almost fooled me with that different spelling, so I started playing, realised the intro was familiar, and thought "oh they just recycled it, next!".

    Let me do the diplomatic (kii) thing: you can rate whichever you like (this also applies to other songs like Party Favors and Player Company).



    If you dare mention Igloo anywhere near All Hands On Deck you're getting instantly thread-banned.
     
  18. Do people actually use the Chris Brown and Iggy versions of Player and All Hands On Deck? eek.

    I've got a handful of tracks all fighting over which will be my 11, I'm still not sure which one it will be. I'll say it now, I'm hoping we won't see a predictable winner in 2 On or Company. Both songs are absolute bangers, but I want to see something else win that better represents Tinashe as an artist.
