Age & Early Life

On November 8th, 1989, in St. Louis, Missouri, SZA was born Solána Imani Rowe. She’s 32 years old right now. Despite having a Christian mother (an executive at AT&T), she was raised in a Muslim family in Maplewood, New Jersey (an executive producer at CNN). She has a half-sister named Tiffany and an elder brother named Daniel who is a rapper known as Manhattan. During the afternoons of her regular school days, SZA would attend a religious boarding school for young Muslims.

She had stopped wearing the hijab after being bullied by fellow middle school students following the September 11th attacks in 2001. After graduating from Columbia High School in 2008, SZA studied marine biology at Delaware State University, where she had previously engaged in sports including cheerleading and gymnastics. She told her parents she wanted to be a singer, so she dropped out of school during her last semester and met Top Dawg Entertainment co-president Terrence “Punch” Henderson. Her performing moniker, “Self-savior, Zig-zag-zig, Allah,” is derived from the Supreme Alphabet.

Career

Before being the first female artist signed to Top Dawg Entertainment in July 2013, SZA released two EPs independently titled “See.SZA.Run” and “S.” The EP “Z,” which she released in April 2014, peaked at #5 on the “Billboard” R&B chart and #9 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. Singles “Babylon” (with Kendrick Lamar) and “Child’s Play” were both released from the EP (featuring Chance the Rapper). Later that year, SZA worked with Jill Scott on the song “Divinity,” and she went on to pen hits for Beyoncé and Rihanna. She collaborated with Rihanna on the song “Consideration,” and the two of them performed it together at the 2016 Brit Awards. SZA signed with RCA Records a few months after releasing the first single from her debut album, “Drew Barrymore,” which was certified Platinum.

After being released on June 9, 2017, her album “Ctrl” was certified 2x Platinum in the United States and New Zealand and Gold in Australia, Denmark, and the United Kingdom. The album has three certified singles: “Love Galore” (with Travis Scott), “The Weekend,” and “Broken Clocks,” with the latter two receiving a total of five Platinum certifications. SZA appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single “What Lovers Do” by Maroon 5 in August of 2017. She collaborated with Kendrick Lamar on “All the Stars” from “Black Panther,” which won her five Grammy nods in 2018. The song “All the Stars” was nominated for an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy, and it also debuted in the top 10 in a number of other countries.

SZA has been heard on two songs by Cardi B and DJ Khaled, both released in the past year: “I Do” (2018) and “Just Us” (2019). Her singles “Hit Different” (with Ty Dolla Sign) and “Good Days” were both certified Platinum or higher in 2020, and she collaborated with Justin Timberlake on “The Other Side” for the “Trolls World Tour” album. Her first Grammy came in 2021 for her work on “Kiss Me More,” a song by Doja Cat that achieved 6x Platinum in Australia.

In the same year, she also recorded “No Love” with Summer Walker and had songs featured on the soundtracks for “Space Jam: A New Legacy” (“Just for Me”) and “Dear Evan Hansen” (“The Anonymous Ones”). After SZA’s song “I Hate U” became a sensation on TikTok in December 2021, she decided to release it as a single, where it promptly topped both the Hot R&B Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts on “Billboard.” She commemorated the album’s fifth anniversary by releasing a deluxe edition of “Ctrl” in the middle of 2022.
