11 Reasons You Should Be Following SZA On Instagram Right Now

In the past week, I've seen SZA everywhere I turn. Every Instagram story, every Snapchat replay, every single Spotify playlist. The SZA movement is happening, people. And we won't dare try to stop it.

So, if you're just joining us, who is SZA and why should you care? Before the New Jersey native — born Solána Imani Rowe — hit the mainstream scene, the neo soul singer was dropping critically acclaimed EPs for years. But with her musical return and debut album this month, all eyes seem to be on the 26-year-old again and we know why. Her music is raw and dripping with honesty. And her looks are absolute fire.

Click ahead to see why SZA is the beauty icon we all need this year and try not to save every photo to your Instagram for future inspiration.

Remember when everyone and their mother was rocking rosé hair? SZA tried the trend first.
You'll rarely catch the singer with her hair up, but when she does, she does it right.
This low-key look is one of our absolute favorites. Her wine red hair has us tempted to try the color ourselves.
SZA loves to rock glam makeup onstage, but we often see the artist showing off a more natural look on Instagram. With mile-long lashes, of course.
SZA's love for switching up her hair color makes her beauty evolution especially impressive. Just last summer she was rocking this ashy blonde hue. She credits Jane Carter Solutions products for keeping her strands healthy between dye jobs.
Minimal makeup paired with glitter strobing is a trend in the making. Check out the gilded touch that's so subtle you might just miss it.
If you didn't think a little bit of gloss could go far, then you haven't seen SZA. From her lips to her eyelids, the singer is glowing.
Her signature freckles are the kind of beauty trait that people get tattoos to copy.
Looking for some #hairgoals? SZA is a walking Pinterest board of inspiration, including this full braid.
When the Ctrl singer posted this photo showing off her new braids, fans were quick to note her resemblance to another iconic singer: Brandy.
If we had to rank her best hair colors, we'd definitely choose the jet-black hue as the GOAT.
