It is safe to state that SZA‘s “Kill Bill” is flourishing. The track from her long-awaited sophomore album SOS has now topped the Billboard Global 200 list, making it her first number one on the chart and simultaneously achieving the uncommon double of being number one in the Billboard 200 for four consecutive weeks. Furthermore, it is a top 5 hit in Europe. In an effort to give the song even more force, a new music video was released, with Christian Breslauer directing, which pays homage to Quentin Tarantino’s revenge film of the same name and starring Vivica A. Fox, who was in the original movie playing Vernita Green. This high-energy video has a combination of anime, fantasy and skin, producing an extraordinary action-packed sequence.
The New Jersey-born singer-songwriter has a huge admiration for Tarantino and the gritty, intense stories that he tells. She expresses her fascination with the characters in the famous 2000s films, saying: “I love Vivica A. Fox’s character. I love Lucy Liu’s character. I even love Bill because he’s so complex — I feel like he doesn’t understand why he did what he did. He’s void of emotion, but he had such deep feelings for The Bride that he couldn’t stand her to be with anyone else. That was really complex and cool to me. It’s a love story.” As a result, she has used the movies as inspiration for the music video for her song ‘Kill Bill’.
