Speaking to The Guardian newspaper, the '2 On' hitmaker said: ''There's colourism involved in the black community, which is very apparent. It's about trying to find a balance where I'm a mixed woman, and sometimes I feel like I don't fully fit into the black community; they don't fully accept me, even though I see myself as a black woman.''

Tinashe, Saved Album Review

By Hannah Spencer in Music Reviews on 18 October 2010

Zimbabwe born twenty-something Tinashe is a feel-good breath of fresh air to contemporary popular music. Not obsessed with trying to replicate any specific style, 'Saved' is an eleven track effort of catchy, soulful pop with slick and funky bass lines particularly dominant in the mix throughout.

Starting with title track 'Saved', its out and out upbeat feel-good pop from the start with a catchy 'ooh' hook, stop verses and pop string quartet backing. 'If You Say So' encapsulates the same catchy upbeat pop but with more of a rock edge. Already Tinashe establishes resemblance to feel-good bands such as Scouting For Girls, The Hoosiers and The Feeling; a style which continues throughout the entirety of the album ('The Feeling', 'Guilt Proof Vest' etc).

'Good Times', undoubtedly one of the albums' highlights, has an infectious piano-accompanied 'do do do' introduction and groovy stop verse. In his lyrics, Tinashe talks of his 'God damn quarter life crisis', adolescence and wanting to be young again with the repeated line chorus 'take me back to the good times'. The clap along scat breakdown towards the end of 'Good Times' sits nicely and sparks to mind influence of Jamie Cullum-esque jazz pop and, more significantly, of his African roots.
