Top Dawg Entertainment’s R&B superstar SZA has released her sophomore album and the follow-up to her debut record ‘Ctrl’. Titled ‘SOS’, the 23-track LP features guest appearances by Houston’s iconic emcee Travis Scott and his Cactus Jack labelmate Don Toliver, pop star Phoebe Bridgers and a posthumous feature from Wu-Tang Clan’s legendary emcee Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

The highly anticipated record comes against the backdrop of the ‘All the Lights’ R&B singer’s reservations about releasing any more music.
I feel like music, in this capacity, I don’t see longevity,” SZA said. “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’mma take a good swing at it, and I’mma give ’em my absolute best.”
Perhaps, SZA – real name Solána Imani Rowe – is referring to the immense that the artists have begun to face because of a massive paradigm shift in the ways the music is consumed. SZA is renowned for releasing some of the finest records such as ‘Doves in the Wind’ f/ Kendrick Lamar & ‘Love Galore’ f/ Travis Scott and more.
