Tinashe Teams Up With Travi$ Scott for ‘Vulnerable’
Tinashe is by no means a newcomer to the spotlight. Before pursuing a solo career two years ago, the 20-year-old Los Angeles beauty was a member of pop girl group the Stunners while juggling a recurring role on ‘Two and a Half Men.’ She also has her own Wikipedia page and over 250,000 followers on Twitter, for what it’s worth.
Last year, Tinashe (né Tinashe Kachingwe) released two solo mixtapes independently — ‘In Case We Die’ and ‘Reverie,’ both of which went largely under the Internet music writing-sphere’s radar — before eventually signing with RCA Records, where she’s currently working on her official debut album.
By the sounds of this new single, Tinashe may finally get in where she fits in.
‘Vulnerable’ relays her tender vocals over sludgy, crawling production, which makes for one spellbinding combination. It’s also shrewdly put together; not that Travi$ Scott doesn’t enhance the record with his ‘I’m In It’- rehashing verse, but his inclusion makes this immediately appealing to the Tumblr-wave masses.
The song is produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz (the duo behind Jay Z’s ‘F—WithMeYouKnowIGotIt’) and will appear on Tinashe’s upcoming mixtape, ‘Black Water,’ which drops Tuesday (Nov. 26).
