SZA and the “S” stands for “sexy” (jk, it’s really Solana). Listening to SZA’s music from her very first full-length project, you can see how her confidence has grown. In 2017, she released her debut album CTRL. In the song “Drew Barrymore” she sings about her insecurities and how she wants to be better to impress a guy she wants.
“I’m so ashamed of myself think I need therapy-y-y-y/ I’m sorry I’m not more attractive/I’m sorry I’m not more ladylike,” the New Jersey native sings.
Now, if you fast forward to 2022, five years after that song was released, SZA is singing a different tune. In the title track of SOS, which serves as the intro to the project, she is screaming that she commands respect.
“Give me a second, give me a minute/Nah, lil’ bitch, can’t let you finish/Yeah, that’s right, I need commissions on mine/All that sauce you got from me/All that shit I gave for free/I want it back, want it back/This ain’t no warnin’ shot/Case all you h— forgot/Know you been more than lost/Without me,” she belts in the first verse.
It’s very apparent that in those five years, she has thought of herself differently. While filters, body enhancements, and facial injections are common in this day and age, as a celebrity, she has been very upfront about cosmetic procedures she has done in the past. She first addressed the Brazilian butt-lift rumors in the intro SOS.
“So classic, that a– so fat, it look natural, it’s not,” she sings later in the song.
In an interview with Elle back in May, she admitted to getting the body enhancement.
“I always wanted a really fat a– with less gym time,” SZA said. “I didn’t succumb to industry pressure, I succumbed to my own eyes in the mirror and being like, No, I need some more a–.”
She also defended herself against the harmful rumors about her getting work done on her face, which she has denied.
“I heard I had a facelift, I heard I had a nose job, I heard my teeth were fake,” she told The Wall Street Journal. “Now do I need to go out and get a nose job because you all made me feel like I need one?” the singer asked.
BBL or not, SZA takes the cake on posting some of the sexiest Instagram photos. Take a look at seven of her best below:
