SZA on Career, Her Love for Music and Being Her Best Self

The ‘CTRL’ singer sits down with British ‘Vogue.’

Solána Rowe, or SZA as you may know her, has quickly made a name for herself in the music industry. After dropping her debut album CTRL in June 2017, the record went platinum in March this year – and that’s only the beginning.

The star has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry, including her hit “All The Stars” alongside Kendrick Lamar, which was created for Marvel’s history-making movie Black Panther. It’s safe to say that SZA is one of the biggest names to watch right now, currently touring across the world for the first time.

The singer had the chance to sit down with British Vogue and talk about everything from her career, to gender equality and being a role model. Peep shots from the feature in the gallery above, and read the full interview online.

“The time is now. Feminine energy is dominant, whether you throw it on a line-up or not. Everyone can feel it. We don’t need [men] to survive or be valid functioning members of society. [Women are] representing themselves in a new grown-up demographic that’s probably quite threatening to what we’ve always known.”
