While her ScHoolboy Q-assisted hit “2 On” is still burning up the charts, rising singer-songwriter Tinashe has decided to premiere its official follow-up entitled “Pretend” featuring A$AP Rocky! The track will serve as the second single off her upcoming debut album Aquarius, which is due out October 7 via RCA Records. Produced by “Drunk In Love” hit-maker Detail, “Pretend” is a warm and spacious slow jam about being in a troubled relationship with someone but you’re choosing to pretend that everything is okay anyway – I think we’ve all been there (I certainty have). “When I’m looking for love, I pretend it’s you / A love that never ends,” Tinashe coos over the crashing minimalistic beat. Sure it’s bit of a departure from its club-oriented predecessor, but Tinashe‘s voice really shines here and its more in line with her earlier mixtape work – I love it. Get into it!
