SZA came out with her debut EP See.SZA.Run back in October 2012, and has turned from star to supernova ever since. In fact, some of the best SZA lyrics come from her first EP, Z, which was released back in 2014 — looking at you, “Childs Play.” It was her 2017 album, CTRL, that blew up and gained immense critical acclaim, earning her five Grammy nominations that year. The rest is history.

Sometimes it takes something special to give your Instagram or TikTok post that additional flair that will set it apart from the rest, and you can't go wrong with moody SZA song quotes. Having a night out with the girls? Feeling your ‘fit? In your deepest feels at night and want everyone to know it? There’s nothing like a SZA lyric to grant you a little validation when you’re feeling rock-bottom. Just remember that it’s okay to feel lost and like it and keep those “Good Days” on your mind.
