SZA accidentally came across Björk's music when she stole an iPod from one of her peers at gymnastics camp, in which her mother enrolled her to "grace her up." "That s**t changed my life," she says, adding that the iPod was also her window into rap artists like Jay Z, OutKast, Common, and Nas. Growing up, her strict parents limited her music access to Brazilian jazz, Miles Davis, soul and Lauryn Hill, who lived on the street behind her family in Maplewood, New Jersey. "I saw her at Baskin-Robbins all the time," SZA says. "She was this pretty voice and face that my father respected."
