Tinashe has shared a new music video from her excellent Aquarius album that seems too high-octane for a Monday morning. Watch the R&B star promise to “blow your mind” and succeed with the “All Hands On Deck” clip:
Directed by Ben Mor, the “All Hands On Deck” clip features Tinashe and her crew dancing up a storm at a shipyard in Long beach, Calif. Before night falls, the singer and her backup dancers show off some choreography in suspended shipping containers, evoking the climactic final sequence in Step Up: Revolution (of course).
“I feel like when you put yourself in a borderline dangerous situation, exciting things can happen,” says Tinashe in a statement. “That shock value is always what you want to go for in a memorable video. We were over 100 feet in the air with no safety harnesses. Literally, we could have died. It was a thrill to make and I’m so excited for my fans to see this video. We really stepped it up, visually.”
Released in October, Tinashe’s debut album Aquarius also includes the Top 20 hit “2 On,” featuring ScHoolboy Q. The 22-year-old was scheduled to open for Iggy Azalea on her arena tour this spring, but hopped off the tour after the dates were postponed to September.
