“Sweat” is the seventh track on Zayn’s 2021 album ‘Nobody Is Listening.’ The song is a sweaty ode to the physical activities that unfold in the bed with the singer and his partner.
Zayn released his third studio album, titled ‘Nobody Is Listening,’ on January 15, 2021, after releasing two singles “Better” and “Vibez.” This is Zayn’s follow-up project to his 2018 album ‘Icarus Falls.’
Although there is no direct mention of it, the song could be a tribute to Zayn’s current partner Gigi Hadid, who is an American model. So, when Zayn sings about getting lost in the most perfect body he has seen, he just might not be exaggerating.

“Sweat” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
In the song, Zayn sings about getting physical with his partner, enchanted by her beauty. Throughout the other songs on the album, Zayn has been singing about the emotional connection between him and his partner, and now it’s time to take it to the next level.
Zayn sings about staying up all night with her in bed and satisfying their most primitive of needs. But this kind of passion does not manifest out of thin air. He is in love with this woman and this feeling intensifies the sex between them.
Zayn sings how it’s his pleasure to please her all night long; “Give you all of my attention / Dive into that ocean of your love, oh.”
Steaming up the windows is classic imagery used in movies to reference sex. A colder room with two people sweating inside will get the windows blurred with steam. Zayn describes her room to be like this when they are at it.
Sex is a very physical activity and bound to break a good sweat if done right. It also signifies the sexual chemistry between the two, hinting at a perfect emotional and physical connection.
