Tinashe sure heated up the sidewalk outside of the Hot 97 office the other day, as she creatively debuted her new single “Flames”. She certainly surprised Jen from BK and pedestrians as she held up traffic with none other than a fire truck, paired with a handful of shirtless men dressed as firefighters – with snow on the ground, no less. I don’t think we could have come up with a better way to say FLAMES than that, as the “Flash Mob” came to a close Tinashe waltz out of the truck as cheerful as ever.

And in a brief interview she talks about her newest projects both “Night Ride” and “Joy Ride”, both of which feature a compilation of songs that really complement each other.


Tinashe goes on to discuss the sound she was going for on both projects, starting which “Night Ride”, describing the project as having a more laid back, moody R&B vibe, “Something you lay back and sip wine to,” as she puts it.

While “Joyride” gives off more of that long overdue summer time hanging out vibe, Tinashe leaves by reminding us, of course, to check out her single “Flames”, but also giving fans some flashbacks of her steamy photo shoot with rapper Travi$ Scott that certainly had people asking questions.


Look out for more Tinashe and even a little Travis this month!
