Tinashe covers the October 2016 issue of Nylon. Inside of the magazine, the Joyride songstress shows off her daring style in front of a blazing sunset and starlit backdrop. Whether rocking a body suit and boots by Emilio Pucci or pieces by Alexander Wang, Tinashe’s glow shines through in images captured by photographer Anairam.
While she’s confident in every photo, including the cover in which she wraps both hands around her waist, Tinashe’s had to battle insecurity along with the Joyride delays she’s experienced all year.
“I’ve never been insecure. I’ve never doubted myself,” she explains, “but I’ve had those thoughts seep in, and it’s very scary because I would never want to be the type of person who was afraid to do whatever they wanted to do, or was just too caught up in their own head that they didn’t put themselves out there.”
