SZA ends 2021 on a high note
I Hate U was co-written by SZA , Robert Bisel, Cody Fayne, Carter Lang, and Dylan Patrice. It originally aired on SoundCloud, but got a second wind after going viral on TikTok. From there, audiences witnessed the rise of the rapper, whose popularity motivated her and her team to officially launch the track on streaming services.
According to Billboard, the track just set an Apple Music record, becoming the most listened to R&B song by a female artist in week one.
She debuted in 7th place on this week’s Hot 100 charts, marking her second top 10 debut and fifth song in the top 10 overall. It also tops Apple Music’s Daily Top 100 globally as well as in 10 countries including the United States, Belize, British Virgin Islands, and Trinidad and Tobago.
“Honestly, it started out as an exercise. I just wanted a place to pour my thoughts without pressure, ” SZA wrote on Instagram before the song was released. “You did one thing with it and I’m not sorry lmao.” Ask and you will receive. “
SZA is currently working on the sequel to their 2017 debut album, Ctrl . She has teased the project over the past few years, and was due to release it sometime in 2021.
“This album will be the thing that made me feel something in my (heart and guts),” she told Cosmopolitan last January. “That’s what will be on the album. I do different kinds of shit every day from different places in my mind. “
