Lil Durk Wants SZA On His Next Album

Lil Durk is well-known for his versatile and impressive collaborations, and their success amid hardcore fans and general audiences alike is an indicator of that. Moreover, there's his big hit with Drake, his narrative explorations on JID's The Forever Story, and his work with his OTF brothers for practically a decade. However, it seems that Durkio is looking for more people to bring into his artistic world, which should have amazing results. Furthermore, he just shouted out SZA on his Instagram Story and said he really wants to work with her.

"@sza the goat," he began his message on social media, which was as excitedly written as both a fan and a businessman. "Y'all bet not sleep or get blind. Every female every car every sale she really her... I need you on my album ASAP [trophy emoji and sunglasses emoji]. A hit not a regular song. Go tag sza blow her s**t down. Tell her Smurk need her." Given that SZA just dropped a remix of her track "Kill Bill" with Doja Cat, maybe she's actively looking for more people to collaborate with. After she stunned fans with SOS, perhaps it's time for her to show her stardom in other environments and musical lanes.

Lil Durk Shouts Out SZA

Of course, there might be many people who can't imagine these two artists on a song together. Still, especially in recent years, they've both shown just how varied their styles can be despite often falling within a specific category. Maybe you think that SZA's all about R&B melodies, but she often displayed her raw and impassioned lyricism and flows all over her latest album. On the flip side, Lil Durk took his storytelling abilities to the grimiest of tracks and more sophisticated or thematic cuts. It's not about genre, but rather about their ability to fit different moods and sonic pallets with ease.

In fact, this post from the Chicago MC hints at his next moves after his upcoming album, which he recently said is already done. As of writing article, SZA hasn't responded to Smurk's enthusiastic words. However, fans hope that will change sooner rather than later, as it would make for a compelling mix of two usually separate worlds in many's eyes. Regardless, check back in with HNHH for the latest news and updates on Lil Durk and SZA.
