Two and a half years ago, the R&B singer Tinashe released the hypnotic, droning debut album Aquarius, one of the greatest debuts in recent memory. Since then, she’s cranked out single after single, but her sophomore album Joyride still has no release date. This morning, she returns with her first big single since she dropped “Company” back in September. “Flame” is a slow-dissolve banger with a sticky and beautiful chorus, so maybe this one will finally do the trick. If not, at least we got a good song out of it. Listen to “Flame” below.
I hope, for Tinashe’s sake, that she is not going to attempt to sing “Flame” at Wrestlemania.
