New Music: Tinashe ft. Chris Brown – ‘Player’ (official lead single)...

Tinashe's first official single ‘Player’ (featuring Chris Brown) is a bit on the generic side. It's not a very strong pop single, and in comparison, 'Party Favors' has this beat.
A bit disappointing really but it still sounds very 'Tinashe.' Not the hardcore EDM song many expected but I guess she didn't want to fully alienate her fanbase. This track is like a fusion of house and R&B with a really synthy pop chorus. 

'Player' is catchy, fun urban-pop and I like the lyrics. Brown's verse is actually really good, but there's also a solo version for the CB haters. Interesting that she's wearing boxing gloves on a CB featured song (produced by LULOU and Alex Purple.) This is not a knockout and I can't say for sure if this will be a hit. Sophomore album 'Joyride' drops in stores later this year, but in the meantime, check out both versions of 'Player' below.
