SZA scored her first No. 1 single with “Kill Bill,” as it reached the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
According to Billboard, the midtempo R&B song climbed three spots from No. 4 after spending eight weeks at the No. 2 slot, gaining additional recognition with rapper Doja Cat on the remix.
The two musicians collaborated again after releasing their top-charting hit “Kiss Me More” in 2021. As Blavity reported, the “I Like That” artist teased the single earlier this month on Twitter just hours before it dropped.
“@sza sis… I did something bad,” the 27-year-old tweeted. SZA responded and asked, “Jesus.. what is it.”

The much-anticipated single was released on April 14, with the 33-year-old gaining recognition on the Radio Songs chart and ranking high among streamed songs and Digital Song Sales, per the outlet.
‘Kill Bill” is one of the well-known tracks first released from SZA’s SOS album in December 2022. The song reached the No. 2 and No. 3 spots on the Billboard Hot 100, and the album scored No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
SZA also gained success when she reportedly earned a whopping $35 million from her first national arena tour, per Blavity.
The SOS tour raked in $34.5 million, with fans from 17 North American cities purchasing tickets to see the R&B artist. According to reports, the tour sold 12,812 tickets per night and $1.9 million per show.
The singer recently announced the second half of her SOS tour with European dates as well as additional North American stops this summer and fall.
