Check out the behind the scenes video for Tinashe’s Complex Cover Shoot
Tinashe takes her dancing to the next level in the video for “Player,” the first single off her upcoming album Joyride. In the behind-the-scenes clip, shot at a penthouse studio overlooking downtown L.A., the singer battles several dancers, but faces her toughest challenge when she meets Chris Brown in the final performance.
“It takes place in a non-descriptive, futuristic type of location,” explained Tinashe. “I am battling different dancers in different genres of dance and kind of defeating them if you will.”
A shirtless Breezy shows off some moves of his own and gets “hot and steamy” while dancing with his sexy co-star. “She’s a talented young lady. I’ve grown quite fond of her,” he said of Tinashe, who returned the compliment.
“Chris Brown is an exceptionally talented entertainer, so I think it was somebody that I was definitely excited to collaborate with,” she said.
The full video debuts Monday. Go behind the scenes below.

Tinashe‘s “All Hands on Deck” video proved she could demand the attention of a shipyard without much trouble — but what about the epicenter of New York City’s Times Square (Good Morning America)?
The singer and songwriter, who will tour with Nicki Minaj this summer, delivered a positively illuminating performance of her new single on Good Morning America earlier today, and if the sheen of her sharp tone or laser-cut choreography doesn’t offer enough shine in the clip above, that iridescent panel on the back of her jeans likely does the trick.
“Good morning, America!” the performer winks before she and two backup dancers dive straight into the performance’s first few dance steps. Two more join as the tune intensifies, and in the blink of an eye, the GMA stage is a no-holds-barred dance party.
Still, no two-step comes at the expense of Tinashe’s killer vocals, and when “All Hands on Deck” works its way to the bridge, the singer grounds her legs and lets her voice fly.
“And you know that I tried / Really gave my all / Everything we built / Baby you let it fall” she cries.
Now, having found her voice, Tinashe told SPIN yesterday (June 2) she intends to continue using it.
“[With debut album Aquarius], I knew what I wanted to do, but everybody that I was working with really had no clue who I was or what I wanted to do,” she said. “What I’ve learned with this second album is to not waste time making records that aren’t going to end up on the project. Don’t waste time spending the first day getting to know the producer and just cutting whatever they want.”
Ty Dolla $ign, Tinashe, and Charli XCX perform “Drop That Kitty” at the MTV Movie Awards.
Ty Dolla $ign, Tinashe, and Charli XCX came together at the MTV Movie Awards to perform their collaborative single “Drop That Kitty.” Charli XCX starts it off with her hit single “Famous” and Ty Dolla and Tinashe don’t actually come on until about two-thirds into the video.
Honestly you are better off just skipping ahead until the two-thirds mark. The “Drop That Kitty” beat is just too catchy. At that point they vibe out with the help of an army of backup dancers wearing pink cat suits. Tinashe’s got some particularly impressive moves.
