SZA announces she’s dropping new music this year


RCA RecordsThe new year is starting perfectly for SZA fans: The nine-time Grammy nominee just confirmed she’s dropping her second album this year.

In a Twitter Q&A, when SZA, born Solána Imani Rowe,was asked if she would have new music in 2020. She responded, “Short answer is yes.”

The “Love Galore” singer added she has a tentative release date she’s tossing around with the president of her label, Terrence Louis “Punch” Henderson Jr. — but she won’t say what it is.

“I’d say the date me and punch jus discussed … but that would stress me n build unnecessary pressure,” she tweeted.

SZA also revealed that she’s recorded a song with British pop star Sam Smith.

It’s been two and half years since the 29-year-old singer dropped her platinum debut album, Ctrl, in 2017 after previously releasing three EPs. Ctrl was nominated for a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album, and also earned SZA a Best New Artist nomination.

She followed up the breakthrough success of the album with her double platinum collabo with Kendrick Lamar, “All the Stars” from the Black Panther soundtrack. The track received five Grammy nods, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and also earned the duo an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.

Last year, SZA was featured with Travis Scott and The Weeknd on “Power is Power” from the Game of Thrones soundtrack, as well as “Just Us” from DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd album.
