Recently signed to TDE, Solana Rowe aka SZA introduces some much needed oestrogen to the male-dominated label. She’s already collaborating with Top Dawg’s own Schoolboy Q and Isaiah Rashad, as well as man-of-the-moment Chance The Rapper on XXYYXX-produced ‘Child’s Play’.
This week she gives fans another peek into her highly anticipated EP ‘Z’ in the form of ‘Babylon’, a smoky haze of choppy beats and syrupy-smooth vocals. Kendrick elegantly raps with a flow on par with ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’, demonstrating why he strikes fear in the hearts of other MCs.
With the sensuality of her voice and strong connections in the hip-hop world, the 23-year-old singer is bound to draw comparisons to Jhené Aiko, but her drawn-out melodies give her music much darker and sexier vibes.
