Her first solo release since 2017’s Ctrl, “Hit Different” features production from The Neptunes and arrives with an accompanying music video directed by the songstress herself. SZA can be seen working some choreography in a number of different settings including a garage and a farm, and at several points is fully covered in some sort of red paint.
The new single arrives shortly after SZA aired out her frustrations with TDE. Calling their relationship “hostile,” she also responded to a screenshot of label head Punch telling a fan that her Ctrl followup will arrive “soon,” adding, “This is all he says to me as well. Welcome to my f*cking life.” Although “Hit Different” has been released, there is still no word on her sophomore full-length project.
