May 1, 2014

TDE-Member-SZA-Feature-Image-2014-940x529Okay we know we HW Picked Sza’s ‘Sweet November’ cut earlier this week, but we love us some Sza. Youtube said that SZA was born Solana Rowe in 1990. Here’s a little background on the artist. She was raised an Orthodox Muslim and lived in St. Louis, Missouri until she was ten, at which point her family moved to Maplewood, New Jersey. SZA was sheltered from culture until her teenage years, when she and her friends would sneak out. She attended an Ivy League school where she majored in marine biology. After university, she became a bartender in a strip club.

SZA began her music career in May 2012, and released her first EP, See.SZA.Run on Oct. 29th, 2012. On April 10th, 2013, SZA released her S EP, one of three releases that will spell out SZA.

Her music has been described as electro-soul, haunting, and dreamy, and as similar to Purity Ring and The Weeknd. SZA personally describes her music as “glitter trap”. She signed to Top Dawg Entertainment less than a year ago.

Here’s her video for ‘Ice Moon’:
