Apparently, this new chapter that Tinashe’s sophomore album, Joyride, is supposed to start, includes a more in-depth exploration of the singer’s sexier side. And not just musically either.

The singer posed for long-standing men’s magazine Playboy‘s November issue and shows the singer at perhaps her most sizzling to date. She’ll be the second musical act to do a shoot with the magazine this calendar year (the first was Azealia Banks this past Spring).

Tinashe isn’t going nude for Playboy, though. The singer’s spread – entitled “Becoming Attraction” – keeps her “party favors” covered, opting instead for tasteful shots in midriff-baring tops and outfits that emphasize her fit figure. I know, I know, it feels like a tease. You can peep some of the more sultry selections from Tinashe’s Playboy shoot down below and see the complete gallery here.

Tinashe also did a short interview with the magazine about some of her favorite things, including her need for speed (on the road) and her love of all things fried, which you can view up top. The November issue of Playboy lands later this month.
