SZA Reveals New Album Title, S.O.S.


SZA is planning to release an album called S.O.S. next month, Billboard reports. She said she is “currently stressed” about meeting the deadline for the long-awaited follow-up to Ctrl, however, and expressed doubts about continuing her music career long-term.

“I feel like music, in this capacity, I don’t see longevity,” she told Billboard’s Heran Mamo. “I like to create, I like to write, I like to sing, and I like to share. But I don’t know if chasing after superstardom or whatever I’m supposed to be doing right now is sustainable for me or for anybody. I’ma take a good swing at it, and I’ma give ’em my absolute best.”

SZA also expressed misgivings about industry processes: “I hate the red tape analytics of dropping anything—it’s so stressful,” she said. “I definitely have heard [the term ‘digital service provider’] more this week and last week than I have ever. I don’t like the way it sounds—it sounds stressful and like something that requires a lot of attention and maneuvering. I hate the word ‘single.’ It’s like, ‘What the fuck separates a single from other shit on my album that I like? Why does it have to be different?’”

SZA’s latest single was the long-teased “Shirt,” which came with a Lakeith Stanfield–starring video and followed other tracks like “Good Days” and her Doja Cat collaboration “Kiss Me More.”
