Now signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, SZA’s career only begun in 2012 and she has already released two EPs, See.SZA.Run and S and she is running ahead because she has now hit us with two smashing new singles “Julia” & ”Teen Spirit” off of her forthcoming third EP titled Z which is part of a trilogy and due to be released in the fall.
“Julia” was created with producer and friend Felix Snow and has really captured a soulful 80’s vibe and the experiment with the Pop sounds works extremely well on the song. Her heartfelt lyrics are poured out on to the track with her amazing voice, giving us an insight into her emotional state.
“Teen Spirit” on the other hand is the complete opposite of “Julia” sonically. Her hypnotizing voice leaves a memorizing feeling and is covered in her signature style. The song produced by teenage prodigy WondaGurl and the “floaty” breath-taking production allows “Teen Spirit” to go head to head with “Julia”.
