When: Wed., Aug. 30, 7 p.m. 2017
Although her debut album Ctrl is only two months old, SZA (pronounced Sizza) is making waves as a neo-soul, alternative R&B siren. Earning herself an MTV Music Video Award nomination for “Best New Artist” (a category she shares with breakout stars Khalid and Noah Cyrus), SZA’s opulent arrangements and diary entry rawness have kickstarted what is shaping up to be one hell of a career. Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Pharrell all lend a hand on Ctrl but it’s clear that SZA’s success is a direct result of her tender and brazen prowess. Doors open at 7 p.m; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets start at $56.
