Just a week ago, Tinashe dropped the Travis $cott-assisted cut “Vulnerable” from her new 13-track EP “Black Water,” now we have the full set in its entirety. On this project, the Kentucky born, L.A. bred singer-songwriter/ actress/model showcases her angelic, airy vocals over cool and bumpin’ tracks courtesy of Ryan Hemsworth, Boi-1da, Dev Hynes, Frank Dukes among others.
'Black Water' opens with the title track, a synthy banger, as she utilizes the stronger textures of her voice as she declared her love for the music game. She spoon-feeds a bit of Tony! Toni! Toné! groove on “Just a Taste,” and comes for the haters on the outro “Ain’t Ready”: “I put in the overtime, steady keeping on the grind now / Now I’m bout to blow your mind…you ain’t ready, they ain’t ready,” she softly coos with confidence over the ominous banger, which seems to be the equivalent of dropping the mic as she walks off of the proverbial stage.
