Platinum selling singer, songwriter, producer and entertainer Tinashe releases her brand new single today, “Flame.” The track, which was produced by Sir Nolan, is available at all digital retail and streaming partners.
The release of “Flame” follows on the heels of Tinashe’s critically acclaimed Nightride, released late last year. The 14-track project, a companion piece to her upcoming studio album, includes stand-out track “Company.” The song recently received an attention-grabbing video clip, a full-on dance assault, all done in one take.

With the projects representing two different sides of Tinashe, “Flame” is taken from the latter. Tinashe told Rolling Stone, “I see them as two things that are equally the same. I think you can be a combination of things, and that’s what makes people human and complex. They are equally me. I don’t like to be limited to one particular thing so I want to represent that duality and that sense of boundlessness in my art.”
As a go-to collaborator and hit maker, Tinashe has also recently appeared on tracks with the likes of Britney Spears, Davido, Tinie Tempah, Enrique Iglesias, KDA and Lost Kings. Her Spears collaboration, “Slumber Party,” recently reached the #1 position on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.
Today, Tinashe has been announced as Pepsi’s newest Sound Drop artist. The Sound Drop platform, which spotlights today’s hottest, rising stars, will also be integrated into the newest season of Empire, as part of a storyline featuring Tinashe. Alongside Jidenna, Tinashe will play herself in a multi-episode storyline which will involve the creation of a visual album for the character Jamal.
