Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Tell 'em to shoot)
(I'm out the loop, I'm out of range)
(Oh, I stay out the way)

Got another side of me, I like to get it poppin'
But these bitches in my business got me outchea choosin' violence
If you see me out in public, you don't know me, keep it silent
In the bedroom, I be screamin', but outside, I keep it quiet
Keep it on the lowski, on the lowest of the lowest
Wanna see if you can keep it like nobody know shit

I need you to get the fuck out my space (yeah)
Replacement's on the way, please don't play
That pussy's feelin' like a great escape (oh-oh)
I need a new trick, old dogs don't change
I'm fuckin', I ain't makin' love no more (pussy)
You got a new bitch, what the fuck you cryin' for?
I'm movin' selfish, callin' all my favorite hoes

You know how to reach me every time that it plays in your mind
With a rush that feels like, we're commitin' a crime
Know where you belong, I'm gon' save you a spot
You can't be outside, 'cause the block is too hot
And I'm all on your mind
Wherever you are, don't call me (let's go)

Got another side of me, I like to get it poppin' (alright)
But these bitches in my business got me outchea choosin' violence (yeah, yeah)
If you see me out in public, you don't know me, keep it silent (oh, yeah)
In the bedroom, I be screamin', but outside, I keep it quiet (ooh)
Keep it on the lowski, on the lowest of the lowest
Wanna see if you can keep it like nobody know shit (let's go)
Keep it on the lowski, on the lowest of the lowest
Wanna see if you can keep it like nobody know shit

I need total confidential, privacy (yeah)
Don't want no one thinkin' I'm a groupie (it's lit)
Time zones changed, now we on the first class jet (straight up)
Don't work my nerves, you know I get moody
We fuckin', we ain't makin' love no more
You talk that talk, but it don't match up with your stroke

Wherever you are, whatever you need
Don't call me, don't worry 'bout me

Got another side of me, I like to get it poppin'
But these bitches in my business got me outchea choosin' violence (alright)
If you see me out in public, you don't know me, keep it silent
In the bedroom, I be screamin', but outside, I keep it quiet
Keep it on the lowski, on the lowest of the lowest
Wanna see if you can keep it like nobody know shit
Keep it on the lowski, on the lowest of the lowest
Wanna see if you can keep it like nobody know shit (let's go)

Fuck you, real shit
I wasn't even on, "Fuck you"




But you tryna make me look stupid
I'll slap the dog shit out you, stop playin' with me

Overall Meaning

SZA's "Low" centers around the idea of keeping her private life lowkey and hidden from the prying eyes of the public. In the song, SZA explains that while she has a wild side, it's only for the people she trusts the most. Otherwise, she prefers to keep things quiet and low to avoid any unwanted attention. She also talks about her sexual desires and the frustrations that come with being with someone who is not satisfying her in the bedroom. The chorus repeats the idea of keeping things on the down-low and seeing if the person she's with can handle it.


The first verse speaks of the pressures of being in the public eye and having to be careful about what you say and do. SZA admits that she chooses violence when she feels harassed by people who are constantly in her business, but she tries to keep quiet and out of the spotlight when possible. In the second verse, SZA sings about needing a new partner who can fulfill her needs, as her current one is no longer cutting it. She emphasizes that she's not interested in making love anymore and only wants to have sex.


The song's overall message is that SZA wants to keep her private life private and possibly end a relationship that's no longer working for her. She doesn't want anyone thinking she's a groupie, and she wants to be able to do what she wants without being judged. The song is a declaration of independence and a warning to anyone who tries to mess with her.
