SZA recently released a new song, “Shirt,” and an accompanying video, featuring LaKeith Stanfield, who had earlier appeared in her “I Hate You” visual.
The Quentin Tarantino-esque “Shirt” video, directed by Dave Meyers, which sees SZA and Stanfield go Bonnie and Clyde, features a dead clown and several pregnant women dressed as nuns.
“Bloodstain on my shirt/New bitch on my nerves/Old n—a got curved/Going back on my word/Damn, bitch, you like thirty,” SZA sings in the chorus. “Stealing all of my worth/Still question my affection/Let you all in my mental/Got me lookin’ so desperate.
SZA first teased the song in 2020 as “Bloodstain/Shirt.” The song turned out to be very popular on TikTok and got the name “Shirt.” “I heard y’all named the TikTok song ‘Shirt’ lol,” SZA once wrote. “I’m fine w that.”
SZA revealed in a recent interview with Complex that she worked on “Shirt” with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins.
“That was always my dream to work with him based on his work with Brandy and Amerie,” she said. “We did like seven records in one day.”
“Her pen game is arguably one of the best pen games in the game right now. It’s almost like she’s a rapper tied up in a vocalist,” Jerkins remarked of SZA. “There’s no fear in her writing. She’s gonna say whatever she wants to say, and that’s what it is. And to me, that’s the X factor.”
