Whoa, Tinashe totally knocked us DOWN with her own rendition of Britney Spears’ classic “…Hit Me Baby” on the VMAs white carpet on Aug. 28. Seriously, we almost thought we were listening to Brit herself. Click here to watch the singer belt out the mega hit!
If Tinashe, 23, doesn’t end up making it with her original songs, she might have an amazing career doing Britney Spears covers. The “Superlove” singer was being interviewed on the white carpet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards when she was asked how she warms up. “Usually, for me, it comes with singing a little bit of Britney Spears,” she said. “That’s usually my go-to warmup.” The singer, who has been linked to DJ Calvin Harris, then totally slayed a few bars of “… Hit Me Baby.” And the girl. was. good.
We all knew that Tinashe was talented, but who knew how well she could stack up to one of the greatest pop legends of our time. Seriously lady, feel free to hit us one more time with another Britney cover. We would even welcome a collaboration! When you have two voices singing in perfect harmony, how can you NOT want more? We’re wondering what Brit thinks about this whole voice doppelganger thing though. Jealous? Proud? Totally impressed?
Though Tinashe didn’t perform at the award show, the “Do You Wanna Come Over” singer did, and it was AMAZING. She crushed every other performance she has ever given at the VMAs, and that is seriously saying something when you’ve danced with a snake around your shoulders and kissed Madonna. This year, she showed off some insane dance moves while singing “Make Me,” and brought the house down when she got on her knees in front of G-Eazy when he came out to rap his verse. Tinashe, you still have a lot more to aspire to, girl!
