Solána Imani Rowe, known professionally as SZA, is an American singer and songwriter. Rowe was born in St. Louis, Missouri but raised in Maplewood, New Jersey. She released her self-released debut EP, See.SZA.Run in October 2012.
In April 2013, SZA released her S EP to good critical reviews— in July of that same year, it was announced she was signed to Top Dawg Entertainment and began working on her Z EP, which would eventually become a full-fledged album.
“Kill Bill” is the third single on SZA’s sophomore album SOS. The title references the iconic Kill Bill film duology directed by Quentin Tarantino.
On the surface, SZA sings about wanting to kill her ex and his new girlfriend. However, this notably coincides with the plot of the iconic 2003-2004 Kill Bill film duology. The movies tell the story of Beatrix Kiddo, an assassin who goes on a vengeful killing spree that eventually ends with her ex-lover Bill. The song is currently #2 worldwide.
