Watch highlights from Max's chat with Tinashe on Capital XTRA.

Tinashe has revealed that the song she recorded with Calvin Harris for Rihanna has a "Reggae Swag."

The '2 On' singer recently hooked up with collaborator Calvin Harris to write an offering for Rihanna's forthcoming album and explained how she got in the mood to write for one of the world's biggest stars.

"I sang in her voice, I got in her mindset, I pretended to be her" Tinashe told Max. "I was like 'what would I say if I was from the islands?'" 

On the agenda was the much talked about recent Aaliyah biopic that aired on Lifetime. After Timbaland aired his negative views on it, Max wanted to know what Tinashe's opinion was of the controversial film.

The two caught up on how Tinashe's 'single life' is going, with Tinashe admitting that she thinks Nick Jonas is "cute"... But A$AP Rocky isn't for her.
