Tinashe is ready to enjoy a hot vaxxed summer, and she’s given us an anthem to get the party started with her latest single “Pasadena” featuring Buddy. We get to see some of her California dreaming, carefree living and smoking dancing in the track’s new music video.
If you’re a little rusty from spending the pandemic indoors, Tinashe is here to show you how to shake it off in the “Pasadena” visual. She serves as the creative director for the clip while Micaiah Carter holds it down as the director. Filmed somewhere in the California countryside, Tinashe also serves up a variety of looks – from couture to casual – and busts enough dance moves to remind us that no one’s seeing her on the dance floor – or in the dirt and grass in the case of this video. Buddy joins her to spit his funky verses, smoke a little herb and soak up some rays. But just when we can feel the sunshine on our faces, the video has a twist at the end and we realize it might all very well have been a dream.
Despite the surprise ending, Tinashe has those of us not located in Cali ready to hop on a plane to get summer started right now. “Pasadena” is the first single from Tinashe’s upcoming album, 333, her follow-up to 2019’s Songs For You.
