The British title is properly spelled as an acronym (with no full stops), but it is also common to find it spelled Cold.

Cold is the presence of low temperature, especially in the atmosphere. In common usage, cold is often a subjective perception. A lower bound to temperature is absolute zero, defined as 0.00°K on the Kelvin scale, an absolute thermodynamic temperature scale. This corresponds to on the Celsius scale, on the Fahrenheit scale, and on the Rankine scale.
Since temperature relates to the thermal energy held by an object or a sample of matter, which is the kinetic energy of the random motion of the particle constituents of matter, an object will have less thermal energy when it is colder and more when it is hotter. If it were possible to cool a system to absolute zero, all motion of the particles in a sample of matter would cease and they would be at complete rest in this classical sense. The object would be described as having zero thermal energy. Microscopically in the description of quantum mechanics. However, matter still has zero-point energy even at absolute zero, because of the uncertainty principle.

Lyrically, the song features West boasting about his personal issues and touching on subjects such as his relationship with Kim Kardashian, his breakup with Amber Rose, and his feelings on Wiz Khalifa and Kris Humphries. The song received positive reviews from music critics, who praised West's lyrical performance and the boldness of his subject matter. The song contains an interpolation of " Lookin' at Me" (1997) as performed by Mase and Puff Daddy, and a sample of " Illegal Search" (1990) also performed by LL Cool J.
The song peaked at number 86 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and hit 68 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

West performed the song at the 2012 Watch the Throne Tour, and at the 2012 BET Awards, along with singles " Mercy" and " New God Flow".
