Tinashe has followed up last year’s debut record Aquarius with a mixtape called Amethyst, a seven track collection of songs reportedly recorded in her bedroom over the Christmas holidays. The mixtape features production from Ryan Hemsworth, Iamsu and Ritz Reynolds.
The overall feel of the mixtape displays her growth as a singer and as a woman coming into her own, showing off a sexier side of the songstress. Amethyst takes its name from Tinashe’s birth stone, another link to the month she was born in with Aquarius of course being her star sign.
Tinashe is currently recording her second record with DJ Mustard and recently pulled out of her support slot on Iggy Azalea’s Great Escape tour. If she’s got material like this to give away, expect big things from the next instalment.
