Watch “Hit Different” Vide by SZA
In the first verse of the song, SZA admits that she walked into this stinger in broad daylight. She knew that there was never “mine” in this relationship. It was something she took on as a challenge and failed at more and more every day. She kept on falling for this guy. Something about this guy hit her different and kept her attached in a no-strings-attached relationship.
In the second verse, we learn that there are no mirrored feelings from the guy towards her. He still comes in for the one-night stands. She wants to know if it hurts him at all to see her with another man, just like how it hurts her to see him with another woman. But she will never get an answer for this, and she will forever suffer from her one-sided strings.
“Boo’d Up” could be a shoutout to the debut single of the same name by Ella Mai.
