Tinashe Casts a New Spell on Her Cover of “I’m Every Woman”
The TOKiMONSTA-produced track is Tinashe’s contribution to Black History Always – Music for the Movement Vol. II.
“I’m Every Woman” was the world’s introduction to the formidably fabulous Chaka Khan as a solo artist in 1978. Fifteen years later, Whitney Houston spread magic and paid homage to her predecessor with her own incredible cover for the Bodyguard soundtrack. And now, singer-dancer-producer Tinashe carries the torch, releasing her own cover that highlights her voice’s silky qualities and powerhouse capability. It was produced with TOKiMONSTA for a sun-dazed rendition that winks at both the funk and disco of the previous versions.
Tinashe tweeted, “As we transition from black history month to women’s history month, it felt like the perfect time to put my own spin on this ICONIC classic song.” The cover is part of ESPN project The Undefeated’s Music for the Movement Vol. II, which also features Freddie Gibbs covering Gil Scott-Heron and Tobe Nwigwe covering Melvin & the Blue Notes.
