SZA Talks Writing On 'Feeling Myself' For Nicki Minaj And Beyonce

TDE’s resident songstress SZA is making quite a name for herself. She’s fresh off the road from touring with Jhene Aiko and recently revealed that she was tapped as a songwriter for Nicki Minaj and Beyonce’s collabo “Feeling Myself.”

During an interview with Sway’s Universe, the 24-year-old songbird said she wrote “a nice chunk” of the track and spoke about meeting Queen Bey herself.

“It was dope meeting Beyoncé, she’s tight, she’s perfect actually,” said the “Warm Winds” singer. “The call just got put in and then I arrived [laughs], I have no idea. Hit-Boy produced and I wrote the lyrics so Nicki and Beyoncé are singing some of the things that I wrote to it.”

SZA also gave a few details on her upcoming A project, which she said is “getting there” and named a few of the producers.

“I mix a lot of people that don’t normally go together there. When you have people like Hit-Boy putting 808’s and Thundercat adding live bass…Sounwave, Chris Calor who produced all of Isaiah Rashad’s album but all of them on one song and Terrace Martin, there’s a lot going on but it’s just like I’m more committed to creating a sound so on these songs I just want to congeal moments that don’t really go together.”

    Is there anyone else who feels like they could have written that whole song by themselves? They have 20 people on a 16 bar song repeated and expect us to respect them. What is wrong with this picture? And that hair. She looks like Diana Ross in “Lady Sings The Blues”, mid movie.

        There’s a profession of people who are identified as Songwriters, and even they have others assist with writing music. Published works tend to require a group effort nothing new here.
