SZA (born Solana Rowe on November 8, 1990) is a singer/songwriter. Rowe was raised Sunni Muslim and lived in St. Louis, Missouri until she was ten, at which point her family moved to Maplewood, New Jersey. A self described "science nerd" and accomplished gymnast, teenage Rowe would often sneak out with friends to avoid her strict parents. At university, Rowe majored in marine biology - afterwards, she took odd jobs such as bartending and sales as she started recording music in May 2012. She released her first EP, See.SZA.Run in October.
