SZA Previews Darkchild Collaboration
SZA is cooking up with another legendary producer.
After collaborating with The Neptunes, the TDE songstress has teased a collaboration with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. She shared a snippet of their track on her Instagram Story, which features her singing over a laidback groove.

Back in March, SZA first tweeted about their studio session. “Meanwhile I’m jus at darkchild house makin music lol,” she wrote.
Darkchild is responsible for some of the biggest hits in music including Brandy and Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine,” Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name,” Toni Braxton’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough,” and Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s “Telephone.”

Last month, SZA dropped her Ty Dolla $ign-assisted single “Hit Different,” produced by The Neptunes. She continues to work on the long-awaited follow-up to her 2017 debut Ctrl.
“I just really want to put out more music and more–this body of work that I’ve been working on…everything sounds different,” she told Apple Music. “But it all sounds like me. But I realized…as long as the essence of me is in it I’m not really stressed about continuity or making sense to anybody. I’ve been making a shit ton of music. If you really leave it up to me, ain’t no telling when shit’s gonna come out because I have anxiety… I’ve never felt so loose in the world before.”
