About SZA

Known as SZA, alternative R&B artist Solana Rowe grew up listening to classic and avant-garde jazz ranging from Billie Holiday to John Coltrane, alternative artists including Björk, and rap, most notably Wu-Tang Clan, whose RZA inspired her performing name. During 2012 and 2013, she released her first two EPs, See.SZA.Run and S, which formed a dreamy, alluring, occasionally unorthodox introduction. Rowe subsequently signed to Top Dawg, home to the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul. A fantasy-like video for the S EP's "Ice Moon" was released in November 2013, and additional exposure came shortly thereafter through "His & Her Friend," off labelmate ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron. The digital download-only Z, a trippy ten-track set with assists from Lamar, Chance the Rapper, and Isaiah Rashad, arrived in April 2014 and entered the Billboard 200 at number 39. Appearances on a string of well over a dozen tracks -- Travis Scott's "OK Alright," Rihanna's "Consideration," and Lamar's "Untitled 04 | 08.14.2014" among them -- followed in 2015 and 2016. Signed to major-label RCA, Rowe released Ctrl in June 2017, featuring collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Terrace Martin, and Frank Dukes. ~ Andy Kellman
