Scott Stapp discusses SZA’s love for Creed

SZA made headlines when she revealed her love of Creed in an interview with Variety back in November. Creed vocalist Scott Stapp has now told Revolver that he saw SZA’s cosign, and was psyched about it. “It definitely made me a cool dad in my house with my teenage daughter and teenage son,” Stapp told Revolver. “And so, I thought it was awesome.”

“It just shows that music reaches some of the most unexpected fans at times,” Stapp continued to Revolver. “And, I think it shows that [Creed’s] music has connected with another generation.”

In her interview with Variety, SZA, talking about music she’d been listening to that she loved, said, “The other day you know what I pulled up? Creed, Nickelback, Train “Drops of Jupiter,” just a whole bunch of that [interviewer facepalms, she bursts out laughing] … I know, I know! Wait, you know what’s crazy? Do white people hate Creed and Nickelback?”

“Black people love them!,” she continued to Variety. “They rock! That shit is bomb! Why do you all hate it so much? That voice…”

“I like Creed so much,” SZA continued. “‘Higher’? Why are you hating on it? Have you ever felt more inspired and uplifted in your life? I’m in the car and I’m blasting ‘Higher,’ I feel like it’s a gospel song, the vocals are going crazy and it’s also somehow slightly romantic, it just feels so fun. Because even if it’s cliche, he’s so fucking dead ass! I will be a Creed fan forever.”

Creed, meanwhile, just added more arena dates to their tour this year, including Madison Square Garden on November 29 with 3 Doors Down and Mammoth WVH.
