Tinashe scored a smash with her breakout single “2 On,” featuring Schoolboy Q, which topped the Billboard Rhythmic charts and spawned a remix by Drake. So she’s got big shoes to fill with her follow up single, which she released on Friday (August 22). But the Los Angeles native sounds like she’s got another one in her.
With A$AP Rocky by her side, Tinashe croons gently on the somber “Pretend,” which tells the tale of things gone awry in a relationship. “Can we pretend that everything is like yesterday?” she sings early on, later adding, “Let’s pretend you never lied/ So I can give it up all night.” Rocky then adds a verse to the Detail-produced track to close things out.
Also this week, she released a trailer for her debut album, Aquarius, which drops on October 7.
