Tinashe - Nightride / Joyride

  1. I can see Perfume comparisons, but it actually reminds me way more of Demi's Body Say (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).

  2. Apparently she was booed during her Wrestlemania intro...

    Not that it should be taken that seriously... I mean.

    It's a huge sporting event so it does matter. Why was she booed?
  5. Nightride and Aquarius are still so fucking good. Coherent yet varied / diverse and totally realized as wholes.
  6. I go back and forth on "Tinashe is a flop!" jokes.

    On one hand britney_crying_yeah.gif, but on the other hand she's produced 6 incredible actual releases of forward thinking and inventive music while most "flop girls" are albumless (or "project"-less), stuck in label purgatory trend hopping on whatever they think will bag them a top 10.

  7. That turbo vibrato, though. Other than that, I think she did okay. Poor thing was clearly nervous.

    I think Tinashe only gets labelled a flop because she's quite openly ambitious about wanting to be a big pop girl and it hasn't happened yet so she's getting made fun of as a consequence; if she hadn't been doing the likes of Player or Superlove and had just released Nightride as a follow on from Aquarius she'd continue to be an alt pop girl darling. She's doing both, so she gets criticised for not making it big yet and for straying away from how she started out.
  9. Isn't she labeled as a flop 'cause she sells poorly even for an alternative artist?

    No I think people just like to diminish her achievements because throwing sales figures around is the industry's way of justifying the way it treats artists for better or worse.
  11. I thought the crowd was chanting "Tinashe!" at the end but it was "USA!", wasn't it?

  13. Of course 'Flame' has some fantastic looking choreography. I bet the video is going to be great. Sigh.
  14. This is right on the money. Say what you will about her, but she has been consistently releasing music, touring (for herself and with others), and getting gigs, endorsements, and features. That counts as very successful for most people.
  15. The song's grown on me.

    I hate myself for being a hypocrite.
  16. Love that Tinashe attended one of those North Hollywood classes for promo.

    This is a smart idea. Be the Dancing Queen we need.
  17. Jojo did the Company video too! Of course, she shows up to class the one time I don't go...

  18. Has Flame reached #1 (on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Chart) yet?

  19. She killed those performances.

    Also Major Lazor confirmed that she'll be on their album.

  20. Queen of choreo videos - WHEN WILL YOUR FAVES? This song is growing on me.
