SZA • Z [TDE]

Back in November of 2012, GB brought you the music of electro-pop, future-soul vocalist, SZA, with her awesome release, See SZA Run. Not too long after that, she was rightfully scooped up by Top Dawg Ent. and now we're blessed with her much-anticipated TDE full-length, Z. SZA returns with honest, emotionally-charged lyrics backed by lush, electro-soul backdrops with features from Chance The Rapper and labelmates Isaiah Rashad and Kendrick Lamar. Z plays  well as a genre-shuffling EP weaving slow club grooves ("HiiiJack"), nu-wave electro pop ("Julia") and vintage soul ("Sweet November"). In the often bland field of contemporary Pop and R&B, it's easy to miss the few artists, such as SZA, pushing the music forward with gimmick-free lyrics and next level production.
