Zaid Tabani's new single 'Rollback' has Weeknd vibes and uses one set of lyrics to explore two totally different topics

Take two passions, rap and fighting games, sprinkle some influence from topical events and then add the ever-relevant theme of love and you've got yourself the strong foundations Zaid Tabani's newest single stands on.

"Rollback" uses one set of lyrics to explore two very different ideas: trying to make a long distance relationship work during Covid times, and playing fighting games online with gnarly netcode. With these themes you might think you're about to hear an angry, frustration-fueled rant, but Rollback is actually a buttery smooth listen that'll take you to a surprisingly tranquil place.

The song is a quick and easy listen at just under three minutes, and that's a good thing because you'll more than likely want to give it a few spins – the first to just soak everything in and allow yourself to ride the grooving vibe, and perhaps a second and third to appreciate the lyrics from the two points of view.

It also happens to be an almost perfect fit for training mode practice. We say "almost" because of the risk that you'll naturally start wanting to tap your feet and press your buttons along to the soothingly magnetic beat which... could throw off your combo timing.
