IF YOU HAVE YET to cue up Tinashe on your “sexy time” playlist, get on it. The singer, who melds breathy R&B vocals with urban pop and indie beats, hit it big this summer with “2 On,” a Top 40 chart-topper off her debut album. Now Tinashe hopes to maintain her view from the top with the release of her sophomore album, Joyride, which ruminates on “the different relationships between human beings.” Says the 22-year-old, “Sexuality has always been part of who I am as an artist—emphasis on part. I’m an all-around entertainer, my own creative force, and I’m bringing something fresh to the table.”
