Oh, my darling Tinashe.
In just under a year’s time, the rising R&B-pop princess has gone from gyrating against a wall to The Holy Spearit, to releasing her fantastic debut EP, to unleashing an unbelievably sick video for “This Feeling,” to inking a record deal with RCA Records. (MAJOR.)
Now, ahead of her forthcoming major label debut, the songstress is readying the release of a mixtape, called Reverie. And to kick off the campaign, she’s just premiered the first track from the upcoming collection: “Stargazing.”
Filled with twinkling electronica, echoing vocals and dreamy ambient noise, the Bmarz-produced number finds Tinashe floating in the ethos: “I’m still living in a dream/Someday you will fall in love with me,” she coos delicately. It’s a absolutely mesmerizing, repeat-ready production, channeling traces of the creep-hop of The Weeknd and the artful minimalism of The XX, representing yet another slice of Tinashe’s next-level R&B sound. Play this one on loop forever on your next nightly outing doing…well, whatever it is that you’re doing.
And yes, it’s completely free.
