Who is Tinashe Kachingwe?
Tinashe Jorgensen Kachingwe (born February 6, 1993), is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress and former model. Her name means "God Is With Us" in her father's native language, Shona, from Zimbabwe.Raised in Los Angeles, California, she began her entertainment career at the age of 3 when she began modeling and acting.
In 2012 Tinashe released two critically acclaimed mixtapes In Case We Die (2012) and Reverie (2012) which she created in her home studio. After the release of the mixtapes, Tinashe signed with RCA Records. She released her third mixtape Black Water (2013) and worked on her debut album Aquarius (2014) which she released on October 7, 2014. Tinashe released her debut single "2 On", in January 2014. The song lived as the #1 song on rhythm radio for over 4 weeks and has currently peaked at number 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming her first Top 40 hit single.
The tour, which kicks off at the end of February in Minneapolis, will ride all the way through to Europe, Asia and Australia by the end of May. Needless to say, she’s about to rack up a ton of frequent flyer miles.
In their latest print issue, Vogue has linked Kendall Jenner with the likes of Gypsy Sport, CG by Chris Gelinas, Brother Vellies, Chromat, and more to ring in their nominations as CFDA Fashion Fund finalists. The brands are also, somewhat inexplicably, paired up with FADER faves Jaden Smith, Shamir, and Tinashe, because why not? You can have everything I love, Vogue—I don’t even care anymore. The internet is a singular ocean and we’re all just here to swim.
The not-yet-titled second studio album by American singer-songwriter Tinashe continues in development. The follow-up of her 2014’s debut “Aquarius” is scheduled to be released later this year or early 2016 via RCA Records.
Before the arrive of her mixtape “Amethyst“, Tinashe was reported working with writers and producers from Prescription Songs, Dr. Luke’s publishing company, and Taylor Parks on this new studio album in late January 2015.
A full new demo track called “Sweet Satisfaction” surfaced online on 28 March 2015. During a recent interview with SPIN, Tinashe confirmed she has been working with Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Rock City and Cirkut on the upcoming music project. She said:
With this album, I have a very much clearer direction going into it of what I wanted as opposed to just shooting darts at the wall. One thing I was looking for from him was those big hooks, those super catchy, huge, smash hooks while still integrating that into what I do
Tinashe revealed via Snapchat that she has been working in the studio with Diplo working in this sophomore album on June 12th.
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.”
Tinashe first broke out last year with the hit “2 On” and her near-perfect debut album Aquarius, but since releasing the instantly viral video for “All Hands on Deck” in April, the 22-year-old is well on her way to becoming the whole world’s new obsession. Earlier this spring, she released the excellent mixtapeAmethyst (recorded in her childhood bedroom over Christmas vacation), and this summer, she’ll join Nicki Minaj on her massive “Pinkprint” tour along with Meek Mill, Rae Sremmurd, and DeJ Loaf. Tinashe recently sat down with Cosmopolitan.com to talk about music, virginity soundtracks, and what it’s like when Kanye publicly admits he likes you.
Tinashe is one of those rare performers who knows how to bring the hype while keeping it chill. With a downbeat album that’s perfect both during and after the party, it’s no surprise she’s the latest industry obsession. With an impressive resume at the ripe age of 22, there’s more to the artist than meets the ear.
Like so many performers, Tinashe began her independent singing career because of a breakup—but not the kind you might be thinking of. “The split of The Stunners is what pushed me to create my own material,” she says of the former girl group who is best remembered as the opening act during Justin Bieber’s first ever concert.
The star’s silky voice and fresh West Coast sound caught the attention of RCA, who signed the songstress after she submitted two mix tapes that were recorded in her home studio. “That’s where I feel like I can get really personal,” Tinashe explains.
Tinashe proved she was more than just a pretty face with the top 40 debut of her single “2 On” which sent waves through the contemporary R&B community. “It’s very different from the pop stuff I was doing with the group; it was nice that I was able to create my own material.”
BEAUTY AND THE BEAT
The success of the single led her first studio album with the label. “They weren’t just interested in me for being a cute girl,” she says of her reason for signing. So what inspired this new voice to become a recording artist in the first place? “No one ever told me I couldn’t.”
