SZA - Teen Spirit

  • Artist: SZA
  • Track: Teen Spirit
  • Producer: WondaGurl
  • Album: Z EP

Already home to some of the most buzzed-about emcees in the game, Top Dawg Entertainment is apparently fixing to branch out into the R&B arena. The label's taken on a new “affiliate,” up-and coming songstress SZA. While nothing's been made official just yet, they'd be wise to write up a contract tout de suite, as Teen Spirit sounds like the work of an artist on the fast track to success. WondaGirl, the 16-year-old beatsmith behind Jay Z's Crown, mans the mixing boards on this melancholy cut, layering swirling synths over trap-tinged percussion as the singer addresses rueful lines to a past love. Despite its mournful theme, this joint has an eerie appeal likely to have listeners hitting “repeat.” But enough out of me—are you feeling it? If so, watch our pages for further singles off the TDE signee's forthcoming Z EP, which has yet to receive a solid drop date.
