SZA’s highly anticipated, Quentin Tarantino-inspired music video for “Kill Bill” is officially here, and it slays… literally.

Directed by Christian Breslauer, the visual opens with a scene paying homage to Uma Thurman’s showdown with Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) in Budd’s trailer.
Embodying her own version of “The Bride” seeking her own revenge, SZA gets picked up by Vivica A. Fox, who played Vernita Green (code name: Copperhead) in the original film, as she prepares for her training.
Elsewhere, the video gives kudos to O-Ren Ishiii’s anime sequence and the iconic fight scene against The Crazy 88 at the House of Blue Leaves.
Other major moments of note include SZA getting double-crossed by her lover, leading to a series of katana-wielding scenes; an eerie motorcycle bike ride in leather; and a fatal finale that concludes with her ripping her ex’s heart out and giving it a tiny taste. Like we said, it slays, and so does SZA.
And as the visual also teases, a continuation for another SOS track “Seek and Destroy” is coming soon, in the form of an outro showing a scantily clad SZA hanging from the ceiling, restrained with a style of Japanese bondage called shibari.
