(AllHipHop News) SZA is one of the breakout stars of 2017. Her Ctrl album was praised by music critics, and the project hosts the Gold-certified single "Love Galore" featuring Travis Scott.
The Top Dawg Entertainment singer may have gained significant notoriety this year, but apparently, a music legend was not too high on her potential at first. SZA retold BBC Radio's DJ Semtex the time she met with Jay-Z about three years ago.
"He was the first person to tell me that he thought I was a fluke to my face," said SZA. "I laughed and I said, 'So did I.' And I still kind of feel that way."
The R&B vocalist added, "He was just like, 'You're good. You're pretty good. You're really good. I thought you were a fluke.'" According to SZA, the two artists then just chuckled about the conversation.
