SZA COVERS WONDERLAND’S SUMMER 2020 ISSUE
SZA has new music — she’s just not sure what she wants you to
hear yet. Three years on from her debut studio album, Ctrl, she’s
deciding which version of herself to give her fans, and what world
she wants to build with her long-anticipated next project.
Covering our Summer 2020 issue, SZA reflects on the different
sides of her identity as an artist, her diverse range of influences
and why she won’t have her music lazily labelled R&B.
Looking back on her career she shares her longstanding respect
for Pharrell Williams, tracking how she manifested her way from
interning at his Billionaire Boys Club clothing company to working
on tracks with him and Rihanna, as well as what it was like to
work with Justin Timberlake on her most recent single,
“The Other Side”, for the Trolls World Tour soundtrack.
Right now SZA's quarantining with her best friend, her dog and
her bunny rabbit, and she talks through her plans to work on
freeing herself from the approval of others, and learn how to
spend time alone with herself.
