Tinashe And Chris Brown Have A Sexy Dance Off In Their “Player” Video
Tinashe delivered one of the best videos of 2015 with the Kanye West-approved “All Hands On Deck.” While the rising star’s latest visual doesn’t quite reach the same heights as that effort (the concept is a little cheesy), it taps into a similar vein of nostalgia. Namely for a time when being able to dance was part and parcel of being a pop star. And make no mistake, the 22-year-old knows how to bust a move.
The “2 On” diva progresses through several stages of a dance competition in the Emil Nava-directed clip until she reaches collaborator Chris Brown in the final round. Only they spend more time groping each other than doing anything resembling choreography. “Player” is the lead single from Tinashe’s sophomore LP Joyride. The song hasn’t cracked the Billboard Hot 100 yet, but it’s gathering serious momentum at rhythmic radio. Which means a debut can’t be too far off.
