Neo soul is her thang. SZA (born as Solana Imani Rowe) announced herself in 2012 with her mixtape See.SZA.Run. and then followed it up a year later with her sophomore mixtape S. This caught the attention of R&B fans as well as music labels. Shortly after she signed with Top Dawg Entertainment and released debut full length album, Crtl, this year.
SZA’s music is really a mish mash of urban sounds with R&B, soul, rap, house, hip hop, and chillwave making up her songs. Makes sense since she lists Jamiroquai, filmmaker Spike Lee and Meelah as influences. Her lyrics tend towards subjects like love, relationships and abandonment.
Her music has obtained positive reviews from music critics and obviously she is held in esteem by her peers having worked with other artists like Jill Scott, 50 Cent, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, and Chance the Rapper.
The show is sold-out.
