SZA Performs ‘Babylon’ with Kendrick Lamar
It’s one thing to listen to SZA‘s latest EP ‘Z’ through your headphones, but it’s a whole other experience to see her perform it live. And the first lady of TDE brought her EP to life at a small show at Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles on Wednesday (May 28).
Fans who were in attendance witnessed SZA and her special guest, Kendrick Lamar, perform their duet ‘Babylon’ live. It started with SZA singing a cover song of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams,’ and then K.Dot jumps onstage and performs his lyrics from ‘Babylon.’ The Compton native’s rhyme flow mixed with SZA’s ethereal vocals made for one of the night’s memorable moments.
Fellow rapper Mac Miller, who produced two tracks on her EP, also dropped by with guitar in hand to perform ‘Ur.’ SZA was very grateful for his appearance and expressed it on Twitter.
“Thank you to the f—ing incredible @MacMiller for grabbing that guitar and playing ‘UR’ on the spot like an angel. Bless you love,” she tweeted.
To all 400 of you that RSVP'd in under an hour for tonight it only held 40 ppl! I will do something special VERY soon I love you all #TDE
