Players Best Keep Up, Because Tinashe Brings the FIRE in Her New Music Video

Tinashe pops, locks, drops, leaps, turns, and works in a series of dance battles leading up to one epic standoff in her new “Player” music video…

Rising R&B hitmaker and pop princess Tinashe served up something fierce with the release of “Player,” the first single off her upcoming Joyride album.  With it’s dance friendly pop sensibilities and Chris Brown feature the song is huge for the “2On” singer, and it just got better with the release of its official music video!

In the video game inspired visual Tinashe faces off against a slew of dancers in a series of progressively more complex dance battles.  No dancer is able to best the acrobatic siren, who displays her technical skills on the dance floor across a variety of different styles.  Through it all Tinashe whips her body into a series of incredible shapes, turning, leaping, kicking, and throwing herself into the battles with gusto.  Obviously, no one can keep up; and those players are kicked to the side.

The progression leads to a final show down of sorts against the “boss,” a role played by Tinashe’s collaborator on the song, Chris Brown. For the final round Tinashe and Chris Brown utilize the art of seduction and their sick moves on the floor to fight to the end…

WERK QUEEN!  Tinashe is one of the few pop acts who is consistently capable of serving amazing choreography, and the talented songstress doesn’t disappoint this time around.  There is less of a focus on tightly choreography moves (like those displayed in her equally impressive “All Hands on Deck” visual) in the video; Tinashe instead loses herself in the beat, which adds an organic edge to the impressive feats.  In an age when most pop stars rely upon tricks and editing to stir up emotion, Tinashe is relying upon her raw talent.  This girl knows how to go hard in the paint, and she’s not holding back here!  Kill ’em child!

What do you think of Tinashe’s newest visual?  Slay or Nay?
