The beautiful and talented singer, SZA, recently graced the 2017 BET Awards as the first lady of Top Dawg Entertainment. SZA is an upcoming African American singer from St. Louis, Missouri. The singer first made a name for herself back in 2012 when she released her first mixtape, See.SZA.Run.
In 2013, she made headlines by releasing her EP, S. Since then, SZA has grinded her way to even more success.
Last month, she released her debut studio album, Ctrl. Her newest album, is very abstract and different from other forms of R&B. Her raspy and percussive vocals create a unique story within the lyrics.
SZA has some interesting collaborations on the album. She collaborated with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, James Fauntleroy, and Isaiah Rashad.
One of my favorites include, “Love Galore” feat. Travis Scott which describes a love that was nothing more than a “summer fling” and she includes how she won’t “cry over spilled milk”, which is her way of saying that something lost is not always a loss.
