Tinashe Jorgensen Kachingwe is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, and actress. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Tinashe moved to Los Angeles as a child to pursue a career in entertainment.
Roc Nation, LLC is an American entertainment agency established by Jay-Z in 2008. The company has offices all over the globe, namely in New York City, London, Nashville, and Los Angeles. The full-service entertainment company includes a record label, talent agency, touring and concert production company, music, film, philanthropy, and other business activities.
Tinashe is closing down rumors that she has signed with Roc Nation. But it sure sounds like she is ready to make the move.
The singer was leaving Craig’s in West Hollywood last Thursday night when she was asked by the journalists present there that if it is true she is joining Jay-Z’s famous company. She reportedly told them that she is an independent artist, and she has not yet signed anything and remains to be an independent artist.
Tinashe’s wording is very interesting, though, because she seems to hint there is an offer out for her, but she is just not inking a deal until she puts out some music on her own first.
Even the notion of a big signing bonus could not sway her right now, she says. But then she also makes it clear she would be excited to work with the company that boasts famous artists and celebrities like Rihanna in the near future.
And, to drive home the point that she is worthy of a Roc Nation contract, Tinashe gives the paparazzi present there a little sample of her talent by singing like an angel.
