JAY-Z Told SZA She Was A Fluke To Her Face
But she didn’t take it as an insult.
The TDE artist spoke on meeting HOV with the BBC’s DJ Semtex.
“[JAY-Z was] the first person to tell me that he thought I was a fluke, to my face,” she says, before adding, “I laughed and I said, ‘So do I! He was just like, ‘You’re really good, you’re pretty good,’ and I was like, ‘Thanks!’ He said ‘I thought you were a fluke’ and I was like, ‘Me too!'”
SZA must have been in a good mood that day because she is the first to admit that she’s often plagued by crippling self-doubt.

She addressed dealing with that doubt later in her interview with Semtex.
“I’ve never had this much attention before, I’ve never had this much expectation on me before I’ve never had this much pressure before and to go from someone who never left the house and kinda only did what she wanted to do with who she wanted to do it with all the time, this is like, painful,” she told Semtex.
Do you see SZA as a “fluke?”
