Tinashe Releases Video for ‘Flame’

Tinashe has released a video for her latest single “Flame.” Directed by Andrew Donoho, the sizzling visual chronicles a relationship gone sour. In the dramatic clip, the Tinashe seeks revenge on her ex-lover by burning down his house.

“Flame” is the lead single from Tinashe’s forthcoming sophomore album, Joyride, which is expected to release this year on RCA Records.

Tinashe compared Nightride and Joyride in an interview with Rolling Stone. “I see them as two things that are equally the same,” she said. “I think you can be a combination of things, and that’s what makes people human and complex. They are equally me. I don’t like to be limited to one particular thing so I want to represent that duality and that sense of boundlessness in my art.”

Blvck Rose Releases Visual for ‘Video Girl’ Featuring FùNSHO

Emerging producer Blvck Rose has released the visual for his debut single “Video Girl” featuring FùNSHO.

Directed by Bria Domonique, the kaleidoscopic-clip takes a glimpse into the lives of various women with different interests including yoga, painting, photography and 420. The ladies later join Blvck Rose and FùNSHO at a kickback where he finds himself with more than enough options.

Blvck Rose shared the creative direction for the “Video Girl” visual. “I wanted to perfectly illustrate the feel of the song, which is very groovy, vibey and fun and highlight the variety of beautiful women of the DC-Maryland-Virginia area,” he said. “The vibrant shots showcase each woman in her natural element enjoying the song, and I hope the viewers leave with the message that all women are beautiful in their own way and should be appreciated.”

“Video Girl” will make the track list for Blvck Rose’s forthcoming EP A Half Dozen Roses, which is slated to arrive this summer. The project is expected to tell “an international love story told over futuristic melodic production.”

Stream Tinashe’s New Album ‘Joyride’

The 25-year-old singer shared with Vulture what she took away from the album’s delay. “It pushed me to create the version of the album that is coming out now,” she said. “I made the mistake of even talking about the project too soon. When I look back on the entire journey of it, I’m very thankful for the time that it did take. It was important that it ended up taking as long as it did.”

Tinashe added, “There were times along the way were there were creative discrepancies, but I’m happy to say that this project is all me. Everything from the cover art, to the sequencing, to the number of seconds in between the tracks, that’s me.”

Joyride is the follow-up to Tinashe’s debut album, Aquarius, which released in 2014.
