SZA’s new single, “Hit Different”, features singer/songwriter Ty Dolla Sign.

One follower left this comment. “You’re definitely breaking the internet.” Another follower left this comment, “Serve the people!” Finally, MTV was not expecting to hear this exciting news and left this comment. “FULLY UNPREPARED.”
The song which has a neo-soul vibe to it is produced by hit producers, The Neptunes and SZA made this statement during an interview with Apple Music on what it was like working the iconic producers. “I can’t really wrap my head around the experience and I think more so I’m fangirling off of having a track produced by probably the most formative producers and artists for me when I was growing up.”
According to the Spotify charts, “Hit Different” had a strong opening. The single racked up 1,106,414 streams on the platform within the first 24 hours. It added another 1,298,810 Spotify plays over the following two days. The collaboration is currently at #2 on the iTunes R&B/Soul songs chart.
Finally, the songstress has been recording a ton of music and is excited to release more music. “I just really want to put out more music and more — this body of work that I’ve been working on… everything sounds different. But it all sounds like me.”
She continued on, “As long as the essence of me is in it I’m not really stressed about continuity or making sense to anybody.” What do you think of SZA’s new single?
