Is SZA working with Kali Uchis on a song? Singer's reply to fan query hints she's prepping for some new music
It looks like SZA has plans to release a new song that taps in some Latin flavor. According to a recent online exchange via Twitter on December 20, SZA has confirmed she's already worked on a song with Kali Uchis.
SZA was asked by a fan to collab with Uchis in so few words and the 'Hit Different' singer surprisingly responded. "Ya lo hicimos," she wrote in her reply which translates from Spanish to English as "We already did." Check out their exchange below.
There are no further teasers or announcements that reveal the song's release date or its title, but the fact that SZA spoke in past tense about the project and was bold enough to share the exchange on her Twitter timeline alludes to the point that it's already recorded and completed (if not polished and prepped for an official release). So, it's a possibility the collaborative song may arrive soon. We can't be too sure, although SZA's track record for the ratio of teaser-release has been promising this year as fans haven't had to wait very long after teasers for new material to drop.
With that said, what about SZA's exciting new collaborator? For those who haven't been acquainted with the Colombian-American singer-songwriter before, Kali Uchis is an infectious artist who blends R&B, neo soul, hip-hop, pop and urbano music. Her loyal fandom has grown as she's delivered larger records. She initially garnered music industry attention with her 'Drunken Babble' mixtape in 2012, which was deemed by critics as "genre-defying". In 2015, she released her first EP, 'Por Vida' to further recognition. When her debut studio album, 'Isolation', arrived in 2018, it was met with widespread acclaim. This year, Uchis released her sophomore studio LP (her first Spanish language project) 'Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞'. She has been nominated in several categories for awards such as the Grammy, the Latin Grammy Awards, the UK Music Video Awards and the Soul Train Music Awards.
Meanwhile, in a similar action to the aforementioned exchange with a fan, SZA recently confirmed she will release her highly-anticipated sophomore LP 'Good Days' before the end of the year. If the album arrives in 2020, it will follow three years after her debut studio album 'Ctrl'. SZA has, however, released two singles this year including 'The Other Side' with Justin Timberlake, and 'Hit Different featuring Ty Dolla Sign.
