SZA 'Shirt*': Release date, concept, fan reactions and all you need to know about singer's first video on Tik-Tok
SZA shared a preview of the new song with her Tik-Tok debut which saw its production from Grammy Award-winning producer Darkchild
It looks like SZA is having a happy New Year so far, as is evident in her recent online posts. Furthermore, SZA may have plans to drop a new song in the near future. The 'Hit Different' singer expanded her online presence on January 4 when she made an appearance on Tik-Tok. SZA dropped her very first video on the popular video-sharing platform in which she is seen dancing near her kitchen at home to the infectious groove of a new track.
An official release date hasn't been revealed as of yet but we will update this space as soon as we get additional info
Lyrics from the song, such as "Feel a bit of resentment. Somewhere in my skin. That's all of my. Is that a stain on my shirt? You b***h on my nerve" match with those of a song titled 'Shirt*' found on the prominent lyrics website, Genius.
According to the website, SZA initially shared a preview of the upcoming track on her Instagram Stories back in October 2020. She also tagged in one of the song's multiple Grammy-winning producers, Darkchild (aka Rodney Roy Jerkins), who has worked with an extensive list of popular artistes including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and more.
The song apparently went viral on Tik-Tok after user @bgottfanns, uploaded a choreographed dance to go along with it. Fans believe SZA's Tik-Tok presence is going to spell trouble for other stars of the platform since a vast majority of Tik-Tok stars aren't signed artistes. "Made more noise than anyone," said a fan of SZA's new video while another wrote, "ended everyone on the app."
One fan wrote, "outsold hype house", referring to the collective of Tik-Tok personalities based in Los Angeles, California. The Hype House includes notable influencers like Chase Hudson and Kouvr and former popular members Charli D'Amelio, Dixie D'Amelio and Addison Rae. "Glad she’s not depressed and miserable anymore," said another fan.
