Tinashe announces that her debut album "Aquarius" arrives in October.
The West Coast native dropped off a new trailer for her album today which also happens to reveal the release date. In the somewhat creepy trailer, Tinashe has body paint on her face and back and gets into a bathtub with fish. What does it all mean? Hopefully we'll understand more as we lead up to the album, which drops October 17th.

With her single “2 On” rising up the charts, Tinashe celebrated with a trip to Las Vegas on Thursday. The L.A. singer took over the grand cabana at TAO Beach for a daytimepool party with her pals. Later in the evening, she changed into a yellow dress and camouflage jacket before dining on wasabi-crusted filet mignon at TAO Asian Bistro.
While on the red carpet, she revealed that her debut album Aquarius will be dropping in October featuring A$AP Rocky and Future.
Following dinner, she made her way upstairs to TAO Nightclub where she hosted “Worship Thursdays” and hit the stage to perform “2 On,” which is currently No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. After dancing the night away in VIP, she joined DJ Five in the booth at 2 a.m. for an impromptu encore performance.
“Vegas!! Celebrating my 4th consecutive week #1 at rhythmradio,” tweeted Tinashe.
It's a rare occasion that an album interlude gets enough traction that the artist decides to release an extended version of the track as a standalone. It happened with Rihanna's "Cake" (given the single treatment with Chris Brown), and now it's happened with DJ Mustard's "Tinashe Checks In."
The original two-minute version of "Tinashe" can be found on Mustard's new LP 10 Summers, which was released for free download yesterday via Google Play before its official release on iTunes this morning.
Is this extended mix better than the original or does the extra minute actually hurt the track? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
