In The Latest Entertainment News Of All Things SZA
R&B star SZA seems to be riding the wave lately since the release of her latest album, S.O.S., which dropped at midnight on Dec. 9.
Of course, that means she is back on the press circuit following her critically acclaimed debut, Ctrl.
She recently opened about her past relationship with rapper Drake, whose recent collaboration with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin, had music heads turning based on the track “Mr. Right Now.” The song is lifted from the album Savage Mode II.
The lyrics up for interpretation said,
“Said she wanna [explicit] to some SZA, wait/ ‘Cause I used to date SZA back in ’08.”
Recently, SZA was a guest performer on Saturday Night Live where actress Keke Palmer was the guest host.
During a particular skit, that featured Palmer, parodied Drake’s reputation for name-dropping women he’s had prior relationships with by way of his music. Check it out below:
Apparently, Big Tigger had questions of his post the comedic skit to where SZA responded,
“In a strange way, I was like, ‘Did they know?’” she told him. “But they didn’t ask me to be in it. Nobody said anything.”
Actress Rachel McAdams made Regina George a famous character in cinematic culture during 2004’s Mean Girls, opposite Lindsay Lohan.
That’s where the singer made a very interesting comparison between Drake and George saying,
“I feel like Drake has a Regina George quality to him where it’s just kind of like, ‘Have you or anyone you know been personally victimized?’” she said.
The “Weekend” songstress added,
“He’s like a cool kid, you know. When you’re the popular kid in school, it’s entertaining. It’s entertaining, but you sometimes are taking losses in the midst of that entertainment. The honesty, I respect that. But I definitely laughed [really] hard…I cackled.”
SZA said she was given a notice prior to the song’s release describing their current relationship as “cool,”
“Anytime he’s ever mentioned me, it’s always been positive. He’s never said anything negative about me. I’m grateful for that and I think highly of him, and I think it’s really weird that as all these years went past, I am an artist now and I wasn’t then and he’s King Drake.”
