We're "2 On" 2 her.

Posted on

1. By now, you've probably heard Tinashe's smash hit "2 On" a million times. And that's because it's a fucking amazing song.

2. If you're not ~in the know~ Tinashe is a baller singer/dancer/model/actress. Here she is with Drake in Justin Bieber's "Baby" music video, just because.

3. But her debut album Aquarius just dropped today, and you probably* should give it a spin.

*JK you absolutely HAVE to.

*JK you absolutely HAVE to.

4. Even Lena Dunham says so, DUH.

The Tinashe album is everything I need to survive (more than water more than food more than pills more than love)

9. Like, she is a fucking musical TRUCK. When her debut album wasn't slated to drop in 2013, she recorded Blackwater in her home studio. TALK ABOUT DEDICATION.
