Zendaya apparently has several roles in the “Euphoria” series. The Disney alum started her career in the entertainment industry as a triple threat, with experience in dancing, singing, acting, and a bonus point in modeling.
Her time at Disney consisted of playing several roles and utilizing her vocals. Her top singles include “Replay” and “Something New.” Zendaya quit music not long after “Something New” to focus entirely on her acting career.
The actress’s latest music comeback has more than a few fans excited. She lent her vocals to two previous songs on the “Euphoria” playlist and the last song titled “I’m Tired,” which she duetted with Labrinth. In a recent post, Zendaya reached out to her fans to thank them for their continued support and comments about her “tiny” come back into the music scene. Here are all the details.
‘I’m Tired’ Was Released On February 27
Besides her roles as an actor and executive producer in the HBO series “Euphoria,” Zendaya is also part of the show’s soundtrack. “I’m Tired” was released as a gospel-inspired duet with “Euphoria” score composer Labrinth and the actress showed she could still hold a tune.
The track was released on several streaming platforms on February 27 after the last episode of “Euphoria” season two. The song first debuted in episode 4 of the show, where her character, Rue, saw herself in a church embracing Labrinth, who was singing.
The rest of the song, which included the “Spider-Man” star’s verse, was played at the end of the season. It showed Rue finally reach a moment of peace in her tasking journey towards sobriety.

Zendaya started in the entertainment industry as a dancer and was part of the dance crew to perform in Katy Perry’s Kidz Bop version of her hit single “Hot n Cold.” She later bagged the role of Rocky Blue in Disney’s “Shake It Up” and performed several songs for the show.
The Disney alum’s songs were featured on season two of “Shake It Up” and the “Shake It Up: Live 2 Dance” soundtrack. Shortly after, the actress released her debut album “Zendaya,” which was relatively successful. “Replay,” the album’s lead single, became a hit, and the music video bagged over 20 million plays in just a few weeks of its release.
A year after the album’s success, Zendaya returned to the music scene with “Something New.” This song was more R&B than her previous work and featured Chris Brown. It was as successful as its predecessors; however, the actress cut ties with music not long after that.
Why Zendaya Quit Music
The “Euphoria” actress opened up about her reason for moving away from the music scene in 2019. Via Paper Magazine, Zendaya said she felt like the industry “sucks you dry a little bit.” She also advised people venturing into the music industry to be extra thorough before signing a contract.
“I think the [music] industry takes a little bit of passion away from you. It sucks you dry a little bit,” she revealed. “What I thought I wanted, it’s not what I want anymore, [especially] when I think about what I had to deal with in the music industry.”
The “Euphoria” star added, “If anyone asks my number one advice, for [the entertainment] industry in general but mostly the music industry, it’s look over those contracts, every single word, and don’t sign anything that isn’t worth it to you. You are worth more than they will say that you are.”
