Hey what up?
00:01
I'm Tinashe, and this is my history in 60 seconds.
00:04
Alright, so here's the thing.
00:05
I was born and I started singing pretty much right away.
00:08
I was dancing, I was acting.
00:09
My parents were like,
00:10
Okay, she's kinda good at this.
00:11
So they put me in dance class and they put me on stage
00:13
and then I started booking movies.
00:15
So we moved to L.A.
00:16
I was in my first movie when I was five.
00:18
I kept acting, acting, acting,
00:19
but I always really wanted to sing,
00:20
so when I was about 14, I joined a girl group
00:22
and we started touring with Justin Bieber and stuff,
00:24
and then when I was like 18, I was like,
00:26
You know, forget a girl group, I'm gonna go solo.
00:28
So then I started making my own solo projects
00:30
in my bedroom and I made a studio, I started recording
00:32
my own songs, making my own music videos,
00:34
putting them online.
00:35
I started building some fan base.
00:36
From there on, I started touring and doing all this stuff.
00:39
I signed to a record label,
00:40
I put out this one song called 2 On,
00:42
it was my first single.
00:43
It did pretty good.
00:44
I kind of continued my career from there and you know,
00:48
yeah, that was not even a minute.
00:50
I kind of, okay, so the rest is pretty much history,
00:53
but here we are right now and I have a new song out
00:55
called No Drama, so you gotta check that out right now,
00:58
