Tinashe Teams Up With A$AP Rocky for ‘Pretend’
The dreamy ballad, produced by Detail, features ethereal keyboards and a plodding hip-hop beat while the 21-year-old songbird yearns to feel the love that she once had with a former boyfriend.
“Let’s pretend you never lied / So I can give it up all night / Swallow my pride and learn to forgive,” she sings, adding, “When I’m looking for love, I pretend it’s you / A love that never ends.”
Rocky then adds a verse near the end of the song, rapping, “To never fool around with cha was my best deed / Stand up guy heart on my left sleeve.”
Tinashe is currently putting the finishing touches on her debut album, ‘Aquarius,’ which hits stores on Oct. 7. The collection boasts production from Mike WiLL Made It, Boi-1da, DJ Mustard, Dev Hynes and Ryan Hemsworth.
