April 8 is more than just Rex Manning Day — it’s also the release of SZA‘s fervently anticipated EP Z.
The project features cameos from SZA’s Top Dawg Entertainment labelmates Kendrick Lamar and Isaiah Rashad, plus production aid from Emile Hayne, Mac Miller, DJ Dahi, and Toro Y Moi. Chance the Rapper makes a cameo too. But as TDE’s only female artist, SZA can more than hold herself, weaving her own gauzy vocals into those otherworldly soundscapes.
