Prior to the release of her album CTRL, SZA was someone who was certainly making interesting R&B music. The early stages of her career were a grind, but she eventually broke through. Overall, CTRL is seen as a modern-day classic, and for good reason. At 14 tracks, it is a concise record packed with hits and personal stories that will strike a chord. One could look at songs like "Drew Barrymore" and "20 Something" to understand exactly what we mean. However, it is "Supermodel" that has ultimately stuck with us all this time.
"Supermodel" is the opening track on the record, and it is a heart-shattering introduction that leaves the listener is awe of a few things. Firstly, those dissonant guitar chords are gorgeous and completely out of left field. Secondly, SZA's voice is heavenly and unique, creating a combination that captures your attention. Lastly, the lyrics are personal and at times salacious. It feels like SZA is pulling you into the pages of her diary. We get simultaneous feelings of shame and shameless that contrast perfectly.

SZA Has Blossomed Into A Superstar
These inner conflicts show up all throughout SZA's music. She has no issues being vulnerable with the listener, even if it leads to people judging her taste or even her actions. These are songwriting risks that SZA takes with her to S.O.S., an album that was robbed of an Album of the Year award at the Grammys. While "Supermodel" may not be the biggest hit on this project, it is certainly the most powerful.
