Tinashe will be jet-setting across the globe for her upcoming Joyride world tour. The singer announced the first round of dates for the outing in support of her upcoming sophomore effort Joyride.

The RCA Records signee flourished in 2015 as an opening act for Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint tour and Katy Perry's Prismatic Tour. She was also a participant in the BET Awards dance tribute to Janet Jackson alongside Ciara and Jason Derulo.

To drum up hype for Joyride, Tinashe also released two singles including "Party Favors," featuring Young Thug, and the Chris Brown-assisted "Player." The Los Angeles-bred songstress also linked with pop wunderkinds Max Martin and Dr. Luke for the project, eyeing success beyond genre lines.

"I don't see myself as an urban niche act," she told Billboard last August. "I want to have mainstream success that doesn't feel forced or label-made."
