Influenced by avant-garde jazz, alternative rock, and hardcore rap, American singer/songwriter SZA has become one of the
most seminal voices in modern R, a genre-blurring force akin to contemporaries such as Jorja Smith, Solange, H.E.R., Kehlani and Brent Faiyaz.
The five-time Grammy Award nominee first entered the scene in 2012 with the critically-acclaimed EP, “See.SZA.Run”,
consecutively followed by ‘Sand Z’ to rave reviews. Her major-label debut record “Ctrl” helped SZA score the most
nominations of any female artist at the 2018 Grammy awards. Certified RIAA Platinum, the record deservingly landed #1 on
Billboard’s R Albums chat, #2 on the R/Hip Hop Albums chart and #3 on the Billboard 200 chart – revered for its law and honest lyricism by fans and media
alike. Locally, “Ctrl” tracks ‘Love Galore’ ft. Travis Scott achieved gold certification whilst ‘The Weekend’ claimed
platinum status certification.
SZA’s polished artistry and songwriting talents extend far beyond her own projects. Her collaboration with Kendrick
Lamar on “All The Stars” for the 2018 blockbuster film Black Panther, garnered more than 20 nominations, including ‘Best
Original Song’ at the Golden Globe Awards, along with ‘Song of the Year’, ‘Best Rap/Sung Performance’, ‘Best Song
Written for Visual Media’ and ‘Record of the Year’ at this year’s Grammy Awards.”
In 2018, SZA made her New Zealand debut with a single SOLD OUT Auckland show and left local audiences craving more.
SZA’s return down under for this year’s Splendour In The Grass is complimented by her only New Zealand headline show in
Auckland at Spark Arena on Friday July 26.
