SZA has returned with a new song called ‘Hit Different’ featuring Ty Dolla $ign. Produced by the Neptunes, it marks her first new single as lead artist since 2017’s CTRL and arrives with an accompanying self-directed music video. Check it out below.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, SZA spoke about working with the Neptunes and recording at DJ Khaled’s house while he was at this year’s Super Bowl. “I can’t really wrap my head around the experience and I think more so I’m fangirling off of having a track produced by probably the most formative producers and artists for me when I was growing up,” she said. “I just cannot fucking believe that because it’s my childhood dream and I can’t believe that I made things I that fuck with with someone that really changed my life.”
A few weeks ago, SZA called out her label Top Dawg Entertainment and its leader Terrence “Punch” Henderson for delaying the release of new music, adding that her relationship with the label has been “hostile.” The new track is out via TDE and RCA. “Just wanted to start sharing stuff… first time directing… thank you to everyone involved that brought my heart to life… thank u for putting up w me #TDE,” she tweeted upon its release.
