Tinashe Brings the Heat to Billboard Hot 100 Festival
Perhaps taking a cue from Beyoncé, Tinashe commanded the attention of nearly every single lady at the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in Wantagh, N.Y., over the weekend when she dedicated her hit song "Company" to them, SO's be damned. (It definitely didn't hurt that the R&B singer happens to be emotionally unattached herself.) What followed was a sequence of Tinashe's catchiest singles, including "All Hands on Deck" and "Flame," which she and her fleet of agile backup dancers moved along to with reckless abandon—in 80-degree heat, no less—inciting shrieking cheers of approval from the crowd.
