SZA Elaborates On Her Role In Writing Nicki Minaj & Beyonce's "Feelin' Myself" Jan 1, 2015 at 04:14pm
Writing credits can tell you a lot about the people involved in the conception of a song, but they unfortunately can't tell you who contributed what.
"Feeling Myself," a Hit-Boy-produced gem from Nicki Minaj's new album, features two of the most powerful women in the game flexing even harder than they did on the "Flawless" remix earlier this year.
Jhene Aiko is going girl power for her new tour "Enter The Void," bringing along fellow soft-voiced female singer SZA as well as Odd Future-affiliated group The Internet, which is helmed by Syd the Kyd.
Both Willow Smith and her older brother Jaden Smith have been popping up quite a bit lately, as they've been dropping off some new records on their respective Soundclouds.
Over the past few weeks, Jay Z's Life + Times site has been putting out short documentaries on young artists in a series called "Where I'm From." So far, illustrious producers Hit-Boy and DJ Mustard have been profiled, and now SZA, TDE's first lady, has gott
SZA Says Kendrick Lamar's Storytelling Is "On A Grander Scale" On His New Album Sep 11, 2014 at 06:23pm
As if Kendrick Lamar's follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city needed any more hype.
SZA recently performed a private show at Red Bull Studios, showcasing some music from her Z project.
For some artists, naming albums and mixtapes seems like it takes a long time (Well$' recent MTSYD: The Revenge Of The African Booty Scratcher springs to mind), but for SZA, TDE's first lady, the process is simple.
On Tuesday night, SZA brought her Z EP to life during a private show at Red Bull Studios in L.A.
SZA's new album Z wasn't jam-packed with features, although TDE label mates Isaiah Rashad and Kendrick Lamar made an appearance in some of the few featured tracks. Isaiah Rashad appeared on the soft "Warm Winds" where he sang along with SZA.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
Yesterday SZA's collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, "Babylon", hit the web, which was later followed by SZA's new album Z. The project hit iTunes at midnight, and we already have a full stream of the project thanks to Spotify.
SZA's new project Z will hit iTunes at midnight, and before that time arrives we've got one last sweet leak from the project, with her Top Dawg label mate Kendrick Lamar. The smooth record contains that same feel we've been hearing on all the leaks, while K.
SZA hit us with the artwork and release date fore her upcoming album, Z earlier in the year, and she's now shared the official tracklist for the offering.
SZA debuted "Child's Play" live at the Fader Fort last year at SXSW, and now we finally have the official audio. Since then, she's scored a verse from Chance The Rapper, who actually harmonizes with SZA for the final chorus following his 16.
Just like every other artist in the game this week, Isaiah Rashad and SZA are down in Austin, Texas for SXSW.
Isaiah Rashad dropped his Cilvia Demo earlier this year, and while it had considerably less hype around it compared to his TDE labelemate ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron project, it was certainly just as solid if not moreso.
We've seen footage of Jay Z and Kanye West tearing it up at SXSW, but while all that was going down, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Isaiah Rashad, and SZA were putting in work at the iTunes festival.
SZA might be our favorite Top Dawg Entertainment member that no one is talking about yet. Okay, they're talking, but not loudly enough. Our guess is that they will be when her upcoming album, Z, is dropped.
