Soul Glitch

I’ve been carrying a torch for Tinashe since 2014, but the world still refuses to make her a superstar. She obviously has everything it takes to be an R&B diva, except that there’s more than enough R&B divas out there already, and it’s a little hard for a new one to get a foothold. I guess that’s good news for fans of funky slow-jam music; there’s a lot to listen to and discover. Does Tinashe really sound that different from people like Kehlani? Not really, no. I do think that she has the smokiest, sexiest voice in the game, and she may be a little bit underserved by her own material. She needs to make a piano-ballads record, sing some torch songs, get down to basics to really distinguish herself. But here she is making slow-jam music in relative obscurity.
