Ever since the release of her arresting third mixtape Black Water, Los Angeles-area singer Tinashe has been on fire. But if 2013 was Tinashe’s coming out party, then 2014 marks the start of her official quest for R&B dominance. Her debut studio album Aquarius is out next week, and today we got a slinky new cut from the anticipated project.
Similar to the firey, slow-rolling ambiance of “Vulnerable”, “Bet” possesses an intensely atmospheric quality that’s pushed by Tinashe’s beautiful and sensual vocals. Then towards the end, listeners get to hear an outstanding guitar solo from none other than resident R&B wunderkind Dev Hynes.
The video for the A$AP Rocky featuring track, “Pretend”, was also released today, which you can check out below. Aquarius is out on October 7.
