Global superstars Gryffin and Tinashe have joined forces on new single ‘Scandalous’.

A scintillating, dance-infused pop jam, ‘Scandalous’ pairs Tinashe’s sultry vocals with a vibrant production. It follows on from Gryffin and Kygo’s collaborative smash ‘Woke Up In Love’, a track that already has 6.8 million Spotify streams.

Over the weekend, Gryffin headlined Las Vegas festival Life Is Beautiful, with over 170,000

attendees. Upcoming tour dates include a major slot at Firefly Music Festival this coming weekend and two of Gryffin’s biggest headlining shows this year: Red Rocks on Oct 21 and Los Angeles Historic Park on Nov 4.

Gryffin made his breakthrough in 2016 with two singles showcasing his melodic take on dance music: ‘Heading Home’ featuring Josef Salvat (which shot to #1 on the Spotify US and Global Viral charts) and the Bipolar Sunshine collaboration ‘Whole Heart’. In addition, his 2017 smash single ‘Feel Good’ – with Illenium and Daya – peaked at #18 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. He then collaborated with pop icon Carly Rae Jepsen on ‘OMG’

and young Swedish talent Maia Wright on 2019 smash ‘Body Back’, both singles that featured on his acclaimed debut album Gravity. 

Tinashe is among the contemporary R&B artists who arrived during the mid-2010s with a high level of pop appeal. Having established herself as an actor and model, she made her commercial breakthrough in 2014 with the slinking ‘2 On’, a platinum Top 40 hit collaboration with producer DJ Mustard and guest rapper ScHoolboy Q. This led to a trio of full-length projects for RCA, including Aquarius (2014) and Nightride (2016), both of which went Top Ten R&B/hip-hop. 

Gryffin yet again demonstrates why he is one of the biggest and most successful names in pop.
