 "A Star Aligned"


Tinashe - Cold Sweat


If you’re looking for just one Tinashe song to convince everyone that she is the real deal then this is it.

In "Cold Sweat" the chanteuse explores her whole vocal range, from her bold contralto, to her sultry falsetto, and even showcasing her rapping ability in the final verse!

"Cold Sweat" is a exceptional song with Tinashe giving a self-revelatory meditation on fake friends and the overall L.A. sycophancy that comes with being on the cusp of stardom.

TruFact: Tinashe has stated this is her favorite song off the "Aquarius" debut album project.

[Verse 1]
I like bein' alone
Cause around here,
you spend plenty of time on your own
Cause the city ain't kind
On the people who sign up for judgin'
but can't take no
Complacent
This ain't a place to be makin' friends,
they all got agendas
There's eyes on your back, fangs in your neck
Thinkin' of venom, fienin' for a taste of this shit
So thirsty, smell fresh meat in the air
So the real test, after breakfast
We'll see who'll still be here.

[Pre-Hook]
This pressure ain't for everybody
Why eyes so heavy on my body, body

[Hook]
Spine, shivers, eyes, met
Head, in it, heart, set
Cold, on my mind, yeah
Ice, drippin', cold sweat

Ice, Ice drippin', cold sweat
Ice, drippin', cold sweat
Ice, Ice drippin', cold sweat
Ice drippin', cold sweat

[Verse 2]
Can't choose the situation, no friends
Always got to co-sign, everything's a ten
Damn I hate a yes man
I know while this buzzin' gotta be ringin' in your ear
Don't think I've forgotten who was always here
Tell me where was you last year?
And I doubt you will last here
It's your last year

[Pre-Hook]
This pressure ain't for everybody
Weighing so heavy on my body, body

[Hook]
Spine, shivers, eyes, met
Head, in it, heart, set
Cold, on my mind, yeah
Ice, drippin', cold sweat

Ice, Ice drippin', cold sweat
Ice, drippin', cold sweat
Ice, Ice drippin', cold sweat
Ice drippin', cold sweat

[Verse 3]
Wish I always got my way
Time for me to accept defeat when my hands are tied
Like to dine in the lights with you tonight
Don't trip, everything will end up just fine

[Rap]
The summers they ain't the same
These lovers they ain't the game
These feelings, they don't mean nothing
These ceilings can't keep the pain
Explanations, say I deserve it
Why after all this time I'm finally worth it?
Ain't it funny, how power comes with money
And how now I'm out here poppin'
They come back like they're an option
Man this shit is hella scummy
They claimin' that they love me
Cause they realize that my time is finally comin'
They know it.

Cause my night is young! And the moon is high!
And the stars are all...aligned.
