Tinashe joins us for the second time on Sway in the Morning, with the same humble smile but a more experienced steez. Fresh off her Latin American tour with Katy Perry, and Girls Tour World Tour with Nicki Minaj, she opened up about backstage encounters and the Meek Mill/Nicki vibes when Drake dropped Back to Back.

While in studio, she also talked about her new music and even politely swerves Young Lito when he tries to spit game live on-air.

Every time we have a singer on Sway in the Morning, whether it be R.Kelly, Ne-Yo, or Jake&Papa — we still expect a freestyle. Tinashe tackled it head on — with the 5 Fingers of Death!

Watch above and stay tuned today for a new music video by this bombshell singer.
