As she gears up for the release of her debut Aquarius, Tinashe sets the stage on the hypnotizing “Feels Like Vegas.” With the champagne pouring and lights flashing, the R&B seductress puts on a show for her man in the bedroom.

“Just you and I, body to body, we gettin’ out of this party,” she coos over the Stargate-produced beat.

Aquarius arrives October 7 featuring the ScHoolboy Q-assisted single “2 On” and the follow-up “Pretend” featuring A$AP Rocky.

With her DJ Mustard-produced single “2 On” already a hit in the U.S., Tinashe brought her campaign overseas to Europe.

Album Cover: Tinashe – ‘Aquarius’

Aquarius

Just days after revealing the tracklisting, Tinashe has unveiled the official cover art for her debut Aquarius. Due October 7, the album features the ScHoolboy Q-assisted hit “2 On” and second single “Pretend” featuring A$AP Rocky.

The 18 tracks also include contributions from Devonté Hynes, Boi-1da, Mike WiLL Made-It, Stargate, and Future, who guests on the Jasper-produced “How Many Times.”

“[Future] kept it straight ‘hood on this track, which I was super excited about,” Tinashe told Rap-Up TV. “I think it’s an interesting blend between an R&B vibe and there being some hip-hop thrown in there.”

New Music: Tinashe f/ A$AP Rocky – ‘Pretend’

Pretend

With her ScHoolboy Q-assisted hit “2 On” still burning up the airwaves, Tinashe teams with A$AP Rocky on the Detail-produced follow-up “Pretend.” The L.A. singer swallows her pride and gives her man another shot, while Rocky delivers a jiggy verse.

“When I’m looking for love, I pretend it’s you / A love that never ends,” she coos over a crashing snare.

“The song with Rocky is definitely kind of a contemporary-sounding song,” Tinashe told Rap-Up TV. “It doesn’t really sound like a lot of other songs on the radio, but it’s a midtempo feel and it’s kinda minimalistic in the track.”

Her debut album Aquarius arrives October 7 featuring contributions from Future (“How Many Times”), Boi-1da, Jasper, Stargate, and more.

With her single “2 On” rising up the charts, Tinashe celebrated with a trip to Las Vegas on Thursday. The L.A. singer took over the grand cabana at TAO Beach for a daytime pool party with her pals. Later in the evening, she changed into a yellow dress and camouflage jacket before dining on wasabi-crusted filet mignon at TAO Asian Bistro.

While on the red carpet, she revealed that her debut album Aquarius will be dropping in October featuring A$AP Rocky and Future.

Following dinner, she made her way upstairs to TAO Nightclub where she hosted “Worship Thursdays” and hit the stage to perform “2 On,” which is currently No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. After dancing the night away in VIP, she joined DJ Five in the booth at 2 a.m. for an impromptu encore performance.

“Vegas!! Celebrating my 4th consecutive week #1 at rhythm radio,” tweeted Tinashe.
