Solána Imani Rowe better known for her stage name SZA says that her Grammy Award losses don’t “hit different”
In 2018 and 2019 SZA was nominated for a Grammy Award nine times, but she did not win. During an interview with Cosmopolitan, she shared that she wasn’t phased by it.
“I’m just a girl from the ‘burbs. I never had dreams of being nominated for a Grammy, I thought I was going to be a gymnast and a f—ing business accountant somewhere. Or working at Nike corporate or some shit in Portland. Who knows, but something that involved a power suit. So it’s not a heavy burden.” shares SZA for the February issue of Cosmopolitan.
“I passed that threshold years ago—it’s an old energy to me. Why would I be mad?” adds the singer.
She spoke about her upcoming album that she is excited about. “This album is going to be the s— that made me feel something in my…here and in here,” (pointing to heart and gut) “That’s what’s going to go on the album. I’m making all different types of s— every day from different places in my spirit.”
“Right now, more than ever, I’m just figuring it out — who I am and what I want that to be. Before, it was more about letting people know that I was a good writer and that I shouldn’t be counted out.” adds the 30 year old.
She also spoke out on the pandemic and the effect it had on her. “It forced me to restructure.” were her exact words.
She concludes with telling us that when she’s not overwhelmed she is very bored.
