R&B Singer Tinashe Sizzled in Sparkly Bikinis During Her SI Swim Photoshoot in Florida

R&B singer Tinashe was born in Kentucky and moved to California as a child. She dreamed of working in entertainment, but had no idea how successful she might someday be. The 2021 SI Swimsuit model, who posed for photographer James Macari in Hollywood, Fla., was a part of Los Angeles-based girl group The Stunners from 2007 to 2011, and decided to go solo with her career, starting with her mixtapes In Case We Die and Reverie in ’12.

The 30-year-old starred in several films and TV shows in the early 2000s, including Call Me ClausTwo and a Half MenEmpire and more. Though she’s been in the limelight for a while, the “2 On” singer is candid about the pressures she has felt to change her appearance as a result of entering the industry so young.

“It’s a growth process and comes with the continual practice of self-acceptance. As someone who has been in the game since I was a teenager, there have definitely been periods where I felt pressure to get plastic surgery. How am I going to compete with these people? You look at yourself and your body differently. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve just really accepted this is what I look like. This is how I’m built. I just try to own everything that makes me authentic,” the multi-platinum recording artist explained.

The model, who won a YouTube Music Award in 2015, added that working with the SI Swimsuit brand was a longtime dream. “I feel like I manifested that from like a little kid. I’ve always wanted to be in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. It’s such a huge bucket-list item since it’s such an iconic publication,” she shared. “The beautiful and powerful women are so inspiring. So, it’s cool that they can continue it and have more music and artist representation. To be involved was a no-brainer.”

Below are six jaw-dropping pics of the singer, who released her sixth studio album, BB/ANG3L in September, in Florida.
