Worth It (feat. Iamsu) for:
The moment that starts at 0:00 and ends at 5:12
The moment I’d been waiting for for months. The chance to talk about one of my favorite songs ever. This beauty. This gem. There are no words to express my feelings for it, but you can be sure I’ll try regardless.
Cold Sweat makes me questions whether perfection is truly unattainable. It’s a beast. It’s a monster. It’s a bop, but that word ain’t strong enough for Cold Sweat. Most of all, it’s just unbelievable. First things first, she’s never sounded better, before or since. At times groovy, at times assertive, at times vulnerable, she coos and purrs and belts and everything in between. I don’t know if I would think she'd be able to pull something like this by listening to the rest of her songs only, but of course she does. By the way, everyone is always like “I love Cold Sweat it’s such a throwback to her mixtape days”. Where are those mixtapes you speak of that sound like Cold Sweat because I need them. Now.
And then there’s the production. When I found out Boi-1da (of Work fame) was involved you couldn’t exactly color me shocked. I still think this is one of the best produced songs ever, and there’s little you can do to make me change my opinion on that. It’s just so crunchy, so rich, such an all-round treat to the ears. The moment things switch up around 3:25 we enter pure eargasmic territory.
The lyrics are out of this world too. She delivers a narrative, as well as incredible one-liners. “I like being alone”, I mean, she had me hooked from the first line there. I don’t remember where I read someone calling it the sexiest song ever not about sex, but I put my seal of approval on that. Dealing with themes like backstabbing friends and doing your own thing, it’s quite relatable, but it presents itself in such a magnificent way, it feels so colossal, it’s pretty much a song that's impossible to match.
I talked mostly about objective facts, which is quite strange for an 11. I have no personal story attached to this song. It doesn’t remind me of anything particular. Maybe I don’t have with it the emotional attachment I have with other ultimate favorites of mine. But this song deserves a place in the upper echelons just out of sheer brilliance. It speaks for itself. “They claiming that they love me cause they realize that my time is finally coming”. At this point, Tinashe’s moment could never come. But she has given me this song, and for that I’ll always have a special place in my heart for a certain Californian girl.
It’s your time, ladie
s. I hand you my baby, take extra care for it. I want to start super good, so here’s my new bae TRAVVV
(10): “Are you sure I can’t have 6 11’s?” I’ve never been more Yeah-ney in my life. constantino
(9) tries a different audience than usual but I don’t know if athletic types are here for that: “Long-distance runners are shook. This sultry anthem actually makes me want to attempt a workout and that says a lot. HOLY SHIT @ the outro. Take me there, sis.” She does every time. I inadvertently dragged phily963
(8.5) earlier oops. “This is very reminiscent of her mixtapes, it's very straight-forward Tinashe. Most artists wish they could have a song as "straight-forward" as this, mind you.” I lowkey don’t understand. What do you mean by straightforward? Posh Spears
(9) I understand far too well: “Wig snatched the second I hear this come on omg.” You can bet I’ve had it on repeat for the last hour and what is hair at this point? Just a long gone memory. Touchofmyhand
(10) feels the need to parade bops against each other bla bla: “I hope it does better than Bet. I've always preferred this even though both are excellent.” They are. And last, but certainly not least, my fellow 11, AshleyKerwin
. We really did that. “The part around the bridge with the falsetto and where the song changes where it’s going is amazing.” I agree. There’s not a single thing about this that is below drop-dead gorgeous though.
