kill bill | sza

Girl Power is back with a vengeance after millions of Tik Tok users have used SZA's 'Kill Bill' song to accompany their videos.

She is angry that she is no longer in control of navigating her feelings in the relationship.


"Hate to see you happy if I'm not the one drivin"

"I'm so mature, I got me a therapist to tell me there's other men"


Rather than using social media or dating apps, SZA is using a therapist to help with her homicidal fantasies about her ex and his new partner.


The song peaked at No.2 on The Billboard Hot 100 and went viral on Tik Tok.
