Sooo we’re huge fans of SZA and this album is way overdue. It almost didn’t even happen this way being that the TDE songstress almost quit altogether last year.
Thank God everything worked out. She’s giving us a glimpse of where the hell she been with a mini documentary, chronicling her debut LP’s creation.
So far, she’s dropped CTRL’s first single, “Drew Barrymore,” which has already garnered praise from major critics, including Drew Barrymore herself.
She killed her performance of the single on Jimmy Kimmel :
“I [wrote about] my younger life, which was haphazard. Being at sleepaway camp away from my parents, being the only black girl, not even noticing until I got older, dealing with boys, self-hate, growth, and God. It’s the first time I’m literally writing about my life instead of figuratively writing about it.”
Back in January, SZA promised that the album would drop on Feb. 3. With no release and no word since then, we hope this documentary is just the appetizer to it dropping very soon.
