Tinashe - Pretend

Tinashe’s biggest hit so far, the DJ Mustard-produced “2 On,” featured Schoolboy Q, and the rising R&B singer’s latest single from debut album Aquarius features Q’s buddy A$AP Rocky. “Pretend,” built on a gorgeous beat by “Drunk In Love” producer Detail, is a warm, spacious slow jam about suddenly falling into bed with somebody you thought was just a friend. “Let’s pretend I ain’t your friend/ So we can get it on again” goes the instantly ingratiating hook. Rocky shows up to do Rocky things near the end, but Tinashe’s performance is the showstopper here. If you haven’t already, get very excited for Aquarius starting now.

Aquarius is out 10/7 on RCA. Here’s an album trailer:

  1. I like it, but it’s no “2 On.” My only beef with “2 On” is that I heard “Don’t Tell’em” first and the two Mustard beats are pretty similar.

  2. I love almost everything Tinashe does, her free mixtapes are better than most albums. ‘Ecstasy’ is one of my favourite songs, and this one sounds great, too.

  3. This album trailer is so original! I can’t wait to actually listen to all her new songs. I’m buying mine as soon as it comes out on October 7th!

  4. I love this song im gonna buy her album
