Singer-songwriter Solana Rowe, aka SZA (her moniker from the “Supreme Alphabet”—a system that originated in 1964, in Harlem, New York, by a group called the Five Percenters, which is also how Wu-Tang’s RZA and GZA got their rap names), is the first woman to sign to Top Dawg Entertainment, home of big-name rappers Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q. But SZA doesn’t rap, she sings, and sings beautifully. Her solo songs are so slow-tempo, so chilly-chill, they’re almost chillwave-R&B mash-ups. Though she’s collaborated with Lamar, her most well-known song has to be “Child’s Play” with Chance the Rapper. On that track, she seems like a lady from another time, unflappable and impossibly cool with who she is, even when Chance starts rapping, kinda goofy-like, about limos and Uber cars. KELLY O
