SZA is here to settle any debate over what exactly she’s saying in her verse on Drake‘s “Rich Baby Daddy.”

In a recent post on Instagram Stories, the 34-year-old hitmaker explained the reason her contribution to that collaboration with Drizzy and SexyyRed might be a little difficult for ears to pick up on, before clarifying her lyrics once and for all. “Y’all lmao I was sick w a fever n couldnt breathe when I recorded this and told [Drake] no one would understand me n I sound crazy,” she said, according to Complex.


“He said noooo ur fine,” she continued. “anyways here’s the lyrics to RBD once n for all.”

The “Kill Bill” singer went on to type out her full verse: “You been so good and you deserve to end your suffering/ I need good d-ck n conversation can you comfort me/ I got a feeling this is more than what we both say/ I got a feeling this is more than feelings/ I can’t let you get away/ Feels good but it can’t be love/ Ain’t a damn thing that I’d do ! Ain’t a damn thing.”

“Just in case,” she added in her Story. “lmao love y’all.”

After debuting at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, “Rich Baby Daddy” became a massive trending hit on TikTok, peaking at No. 10 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart a few weeks after it first dropped. The track was released in October as part of Drake’s For All The Dogs, which spent two weeks atop the Billboard 200.

SZA is coming out of 2023 as one of the year’s definitive pop stars — the second biggest, according to our staff list. Not only did she pull massive numbers with her sophomore album SOS, ranked the top R&B album of the year by Billboard, but she was also crowned Billboard‘s 2023 Woman of the Year.
