Tinashe "Pretend" (ft. A$AP Rocky)
Published Aug 22, 2014More and more info has been filtering out about rising R&B figure Tinashe's upcoming studio debut, Aquarius. The latest tidbit to surface is the singer's nostalgia-inducing duet with A$AP Rocky, "Pretend."
Backwards-masked synth sounds and tender tones envelope the front end of the track, with Tinashe pleading for her and another to forget their current sour times and pretend things are still like they were back in the day. Her voice builds up to an emotional cry in the chorus, which finds her praising the concept of "a love that never ends." Rocky steps into the song with a handful of bars that stick to theme of "besties turning exies" before making his exit.
You'll find the pensive "Pretend" down below. It arrives along with the rest of Aquarius October 7 through RCA Records.
