The American singer-songwriter Solána Imani Rowe, better known as SZA, has caused a stir among Taylor Swift fans for an alleged disagreement between them. Swift, who could be nominated for an Oscar next year for her song “Carolina”, published her album “Midnights” on October 21, with which she managed to occupy the top positions on Billboard and Spotify. But precisely a month later, SZA released her second studio album “SOS”, which has become a rival to the “Love Story” singer.
Since then, both albums have been competing for the top spot on the popularity charts and in the industry. SZA has been the leader for the last three weeks, with Taylor merely a few steps behind. Rumors of a rivalry between them have persisted, even though the artists have denied such claims.
Recently, the “Kill Bill” singer said she “loved” the entire Taylor Swift album and songs, adding that “everyone is trying to do their best as we all should.” These words followed Swift’s own words asking her fans to support her in becoming the number one album.
It is clear that, although the battle is mainly music-driven, Taylor Swift and SZA are yet another example of a successful and empowered duo in the music industry.
