SZA has had a pretty stellar start to 2018. She’s still riding the success her Ctrl album, she’s lent her talents to the Black Panther soundtrack and more recently hopped on Cardi B’s debut album for “I Do.” Today the 27-year-old is the cover star for yet another magazine, where we get to learn more about the songstress and some her favourite artists.
“I’ve learnt a lot from people around me,” she tells i-D Magazine. “I fuck with Ri. She’s in my corner. I fuck with what she does. I fuck with her place in the world. I fuck with her energy. I fuck with what she chooses to do with it, she’s dope. Frank Ocean is a king. Kendrick Lamar is the voice our generation. He’s the most exciting thing in culture right now. Kidding. Although not really.”
Speaking on new music, SZA says she’s looking forward to it because it will be both simple yet complex.
“With my new music, I realize I have a lot more work than I did before,” she explains. “I like simplicity as much as I like complexity, I think this will be an interesting round sifting through that realm A lot more jumbled. I know it’s going to get way more chaotic. I’m really excited to find the extreme moments beauty in that. I think it’s going to become really fucking interesting. I’m so ready for it.”
