SZA’s second studio album, SOS, was released in the United States in 2018. On December 9, 2022, it was released via Top Dawg Entertainment and RCA Records. Don Toliver, Phoebe Bridgers, Travis Scott, and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard all make cameo appearances on the album.
SZA’s Grammy-winning album SOS has been rising since its release last month. The 23-track album topped the Billboard 200 chart for the third week this week, proving that fans still love it.
“Kill Bill,” “Smoking on my Ex Pack,” and “Ghost in the Machine” were SOS highlights. SZA’s label Top Dawg Entertainment released a Quentin Tarantino-themed music video teaser for “Kill Bill” last week.
SZA announced her tour late last year. The North American tour visits Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago, Dallas, Inglewood, Toronto, and Vancouver.
SZA again made history. The 33-year-old singer’s sophomore album, SOS, tops Billboard for the ninth non-consecutive week. The outlet reports 93,000 equivalent album units for the project. SZA joins Adele and Taylor Swift as nine-week No. 1 artists. The country-turned-pop star’s 1989 topped the charts for nine weeks, while the English singer’s 23 topped for ten.
SZA discussed her SOS approach with the New York Times. “I didn’t know how to make [the album] because I didn’t have a purpose,” she said. The TDE star also said Ctrl was a way to prove her album-making skills. SZA now claims, “I did everything I wanted.” “Snooze,” “Nobody Gets Me,” “Low,” and “Shirt” are Spotify’s most popular tracks from her latest album. After dropping, “Kill Bill” has charted at No. 2 every week.
The anticipated album was released last December. SZA’s first full album since Ctrl was released. Since then, the Missouri-born singer has released singles and collaborations. “Good Days” and “Hit Different” with Ty Dolla $ign are Grammy-nominated. SOS praised SZA but criticized her “sad girl music.” “Sad-girl energy has always been my energy,” the lyricist told the NYT. Never bitch-girl energy.”
SOS showcases SZA’s refined taste in modern R&B despite haters’ criticism. Her melodic additions to soft beats magically evoke emotions. SOS proudly suppresses “sad girl energy,” creating the perfect heartbreak soundtrack. SZA’s SOS Tour kicks off this week in Columbus, OH. Only time will tell if her album will top ten weeks.
