Today, RCA Records recording artist Tinashe premieres the new music video for her first single “Player” featuring Chris Brown from her forthcoming sophomore album, Joyride. The visual received its exclusive world premiere in NYC'S Times Square today at 4:30 PM. To commemorate this special moment, Tinashe surprised a select group of her fans earlier today by inviting them to take a “Joyride” with her to the video premiere. Upon arrival, Tinashe treated her fans to an exclusive first look of the video on Sony’s Times Square billboard.
In the sultry visual directed by Emil Nava (Calvin Harris, Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding), Tinashe battles various “players” through numerous dance styles including tango, contemporary and hip-hop in a video game-esque style. The video concludes with a sensual dance-off with Tinashe and Chris Brown.
“Player," produced by LULOU and Alex Purple, will be included on the singer/songwriter’s upcoming second album, Joyride. Written and recorded over the past year, Joyride will be the follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed debut album, Aquarius.
