#SPOTTED: TINASHE IN TORONTO FOR “AQUARIUS” TOUR
21-year-old Los Angeles-based R&B sensation Tinashe still might be a tad bit on the obscure to the Mainstream, but if the buzz surrounding her is any indication of what’s to come, don’t tell us we didn’t tell you so!
Just having released her debut Album Aquarius in 2014, Critics from TIME to Billboard all are hailing her Platinum-selling Single 2 On among the year’s best. A Duet Remix of Nick Jonas’ Jealous also has helped her gain some exposure of late.
Best described as a hybrid Alternative-R&B, Tinashe‘s sound is unlike anything we’ve heard, but to see her finally energetic performance on-stage before a packed house at Tattoo Rock Parlour was an absolute pleasure. To say she has a commanding presence would be an understatement. It is only a matter of time before she translates that to an arena-sized Audience. Fans waited patiently, although tested certainly, through an extended DJ Set before Tinashe finally arrived on-stage a belated 11:40 PM.
We had the pleasure of meeting Tinashe who was all smiles and hugs before her show. Tonight was the second time this year she’s been in the City, after performing alongside Drake at the OVO Festival this Summer.
