SZA - SOS + "Saturn"

Is it possible it's just because Kill Bill is the first full song on the album and then people started using it everywhere on TikTok? I wonder if it would be seeing the same success if it were placed at the bottom of the album.
 
I can understand why a galaxy brain like hers would have a difficult time reconciling what she perceives as her more phoned in songs being hits, but it's like...of course the most straightforward 'bops' on the album are the ones the general public latch onto. They're accessible.

This feels like it ties back to the earlier discussion of these artists who had breakthroughs/artistic peaks mid-decade are now being saddled with commercial expectations they openly resent.
