Tinashe, DeJ Loaf, & SZA Remake ‘Killing Me Softly’

Tinashe, SZA, and DeJ Loaf are killin’ it. The ladies are part of a fashion spread for T: The New York Times Style Magazine’s Spring Women’s Fashion issue featuring some of the freshest female voices in hip-hop and R&B.

In addition to modeling the season’s most seismic looks in the portraits shot by James Robjant, the trio teams up for an acapella remake of “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” a classic made famous by Roberta Flack and then again by Lauryn Hill.

Tinashe, who’s wrapping her second album Joyride, looks stunning in the Malina Joseph Gilchrist-styled spread, donning $990 Lemaire earrings and a $1,200 Dior sweater.

Meanwhile, DeJ looks striking in $295 Alexander Wang earrings and a $28 Calvin Klein bra. The “Try Me” rapper, who’s working on her debut album, also spits some fresh rhymes in a Fendi bomber jacket.

Rising stars Lord Narf, Empress Of, Abra, and Jean Deaux also appear in the issue, which will be available Feb. 14.
