Tinashe has become the first artist to grace the pages of the newly revamped Playboy magazine, which recently announced that they will no longer be publishing nude photos.
But, that doesn’t mean the “2 On” singer didn’t bring the sexy for their special “Becoming Attraction” spread in the new November issue. Tinashe chills by the pool, strips down to camouflage underwear, and turns up the heat in ripped lace stocking shorts, all in promotion of her forthcoming sophomore album, Joyride.
“Sexuality has always been part of who I am as an artist—emphasis on part,” says Tinashe. “I’m an all-around entertainer, my own creative force, and I’m bringing something fresh to the table.”
Earlier this month she released the album’s first single, “Player” featuring Chris Brown. The LP is said to boast contributions from Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Hit-Boy, Travi$ Scott, Nic Nac, Dev Hynes, and Young Thug, who guests on the buzz track “Party Favors.”
