SZA caps off an amazing year with a new collaboration with bad gal Ri Ri's Fenty Beauty. The New Jersey R&B singer has gained the attention of the Grammys by receiving five nominations for her work on her hit debut "CTRL" and for writing some of 2017's biggest hits. In fact, she is the most nominated woman.
Her songs have dominated the Top 40, she has appeared on "Saturday Night Live" as a musical guest and she has carved a place in pop culture for her bold statements on social media.
The news broke last week in a now-viral Instagram post that the Top Dawg entertainment artist will be modeling for Fenty Beauty. The beauty brand, that has been estimated at $70 million in advertising revenue, prides itself on providing shades for all black women left behind by other makeup brands.
With her pitch-black hair slicked back in a ponytail, SZA's face illuminates the photo. She models Fenty Beauty shade Midnight Wasabi.
This is not the first time Rihanna and SZA have collaborated. The two worked together on Rihanna’s last album, "Anti," where SZA appeared on the opening track, “Consideration.”
