SZA Admits She 'Punked Out' of Her Collab With Lil Tjay Due to Self-Doubt

The RnB star actually had recorded a verse for the crossover track 'Calling My Phone' by Lil Tjay and 6LACK, but she didn't send the verse because she feels she 'can't add anything to songs that are already fire.'

AceShowbiz - Being a successful musician doesn't make SZA immune to self-doubt. In fact, the "Kill Bill" hitmaker revealed that she "punked out" of her collaboration with Lil Tjay because she thinks the song is good enough without her involvement.

The R&B star actually had recorded a verse for the crossover track "Calling My Phone" by Lil Tjay and 6LACK. The song snippet itself made its way on Twitter and people loved it.

Catching wind of the leak, SZA wrote on Twitter, "Lmao as for the calling my phone verse .. I'm mad y'all leaked it .. but glad y'all liked it." She then added, "I punked out of turning it in … happens a lot actually . I be feeling like I can't add anything to songs that are already fire. Respect to @liltjay + @6LACK."

One fan then encouraged SZA to have more confidence, to which she replied, "It's more a respect thing to the artist !" She further explained, "I literally only wanna give the best of me especially if the song is already popular . If I can't magnify it I fall back."

In a recent interview with ELLE magazine, SZA revealed that she does "music to prove that I have value to myself." She then shared, "Because what else am I going to do, in terms of how I help people? Me being whoever I'm led to be on this journey must be part of the work 'cause it's really hard emotionally ... My prayer is to see myself the way God sees me. Like, 'Father, help me know my value and trust that I'm valuable, and that I am who You say I am.' "

SZA has won one Grammy from 14 nominations during the course of her career. However, the chart-topping star insists she's not motivated by accolades. The singer, whose real name is Solana Rowe, said, "I try not to care too much because I really had some deep disappointments when I would just be so invested."
