Last week, Los Angeles R&B triple-threat Tinashe dropped her Black Water mixtape, a late entry that sneaked onto Gorilla vs. Bear’s Albums of the Year list. The 13-track set is a shadowy, silken showcase of the 20-year-old RCA artist’s production prowess and singing skills, but there’s one clutch ability left out: Tinashe can dance. Like, dance dance, as seen above in the bare-bones new clip for “Vulnerable,” a bleak and Weeknd-y highlight featuring a Yeezus-inspired verse from Travi$ Scott. Watch that above — moves choreographed by JaQuel Knight — and stream Black Water below. Meanwhile, catch SPIN’s 50 Best Albums of 2013.
