Tinashe takes her dancing to the next level in the video for “Player,” the first single off her upcoming album Joyride. In the behind-the-scenes clip, shot at a penthouse studio overlooking downtown L.A., the singer battles several dancers, but faces her toughest challenge when she meets Chris Brown in the final performance.
“It takes place in a non-descriptive, futuristic type of location,” explained Tinashe. “I am battling different dancers in different genres of dance and kind of defeating them if you will.”
A shirtless Breezy shows off some moves of his own and gets “hot and steamy” while dancing with his sexy co-star. “She’s a talented young lady. I’ve grown quite fond of her,” he said of Tinashe, who returned the compliment.
“Chris Brown is an exceptionally talented entertainer, so I think it was somebody that I was definitely excited to collaborate with,” she said.
The full video debuts Monday. Go behind the scenes below.
