New Video: Tinashe – ‘Faded Love (ft. Future)’ [Vertical Version]

Tinashe is really pulling out all the stops in support of her comeback.

As she gears up for the release of her long-awaited sophomore album ‘Joyride,’ the singer is dropping  trio of singles – two of which have arrived within the last few weeks.

The latest is the Future assisted ‘Faded Love.’

To assist its push, the 24-year-old has released a “vertical video” via Spotify.

Check it out below…

We’d have much preferred a “video-video” – which we imagine is still on the way.

But, ultimately if this helps her streaming pending the clip’s arrival, then we see no harm. Whatever it takes…whatever it takes.
