    Songs For You is triumphant; those unexpected pivots more often than not being pulled off with an addictive energy. For those that had given up hope, Songs For You is a sign that you should never count Tinashe out just yet. Now fully back in control, her only way is up.

    On Songs for You, Tinashe shows off how adept she is at flitting between genres, hopping on moody, woozy R&B, sun-dappled G-funk, ’80s pop, acoustic devotionals, club-worthy drum ’n’ bass and skittering trap, sometimes in the span of a single song without so much as straining her airy, but substantial soprano. There are a few songs left over from a scrapped album with RCA, but here, they feel part and parcel of the vision Tinashe has for herself.

    It isn’t fair that it took years of label mishandling to get here, but Tinashe has finally found equilibrium.

    The risk-taking singer masterfully draws you into her romantic pleasures and anxieties. [Jan 2020, p.84]
  5. Tinashe flips so aggressively between genres that the record becomes unfocused and sporadic. Of course there’s nothing wrong with Tinashe showing emotional duality, but in transitioning so sharply from R&B to rap to stadium pop to EDM, ‘Songs For You’ makes you feel a little dizzy.

    After all she went through with prior record label RCA, it’s such a breath of fresh air for her to go independent and have no rules to followAfter all she went through with prior record label RCA, it’s such a breath of fresh air for her to go independent and have no rules to follow and we see her true self. This album is so beautiful from start to finish. I’m so proud of her and how she endured the things she went through. Expand

    Amazing!!! Maybe needs one or two more distinctive songs because some of them are forgettable but they flow so well to maintain a cohesive sound
