Will SZA collab with Jhene Aiko, Summer Walker, Kehlani and Ari Lennox? Fans call dream team 'healing to the soul'
SZA isn't one to shy away from expressing who she'd like to work with on music, and her post on February 2 has sent fans into a frenzy imagining an epic potential collaboration. The alternative R&B star took to social media during the late hours of February 2 to share a curious screenshot of an exchange with a fan. Initially, a fan on Twitter shared that they would love to see SZA collaborating with 'None of Your Concern' singer Jhene Aiko.
"SZA ft Jhene Aiko is what the world needs right now," said the fan to which SZA responded via her Instagram Stories, noting further that Summer Walker, Kehlani, and Ari Lennox (all R&B heavyweights) would make fine partners in music-making. "I agree," she simply replied, adding, "Summer Too, and kehlani n Ari."
Check out her Instagram Story here. While SZA's usage of the word "and" between names implies she wants to work with them on one track, she could also be stating separate collaborations as well. However, the former scenario would be a most welcome one among fans.
SZA has been similarly teasing potential collabs of late. Last month, SZA hinted that she wanted to team up with Frank Ocean for a collab. A fan on Twitter wrote, "'Good Days' by SZA ft. Frank Ocean would literally cure corona." She also responded the same way as the above teaser when she replied on Instagram Stories: "Imma ask lol," according to Billboard
Again, later in January, SZA responded to a fan who asked for a collaboration with Kali Uchis. A few days after their exchange, she posted a short clip where SZA and Kali Uchis are both seen in studio.

While we can't be sure if an SZA, Jhene Aiko, Summer Walker, Kehlani and Ari Lennox collaboration would ever see the light of day, the similar patterns in her responses to fans show that SZA is active in at least thinking of them or planning them.
Fans are left in high hopes along with her idea for the epic R&B collab. "Imagine how healing jhené x sza would be to the soul," said a fan while another wrote, "Could you imagine them all on an album together. Omg." One fan noted, "sza and kehlani need to make a song real fast." Another said, "YES OMFG KEHLANI X SZA THE COLLAPSE," adding, "SZA AND ARI THE COLLAPSE TOO." A user added, "All on one track please."
