SZA – I’m Retiring After My Next Album
Is SZA (real name Solána Imani Rowe) already ending her music career? In a new interview, the Grammy nominated singer says that her sophomore album will likely be her last. While discussing her next project she says that she won’t fall victim to a sophomore slump, but confesses she’s “still miserable.” She says,
My world got so much smaller so fast. I have so much to write about. I feel like I’m in a cage.
SZA, who is signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, adds,
I’m making the best album of my life for this next album and I know that… because it’s going to be my last album.
Keep in mind, this isn’t the first time that SZA stated that she’s retiring. Her debut studio album “Ctrl “(pronounced “control”) was released on June 9, 2017. Originally scheduled for release in late 2015, it was delayed by SZA’s experience of,
A kind of blinding paralysis brought on by anxiety.
The album debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, moving 60,000 equivalent-album units in its first full-tracking week. It generated the singles “Drew Barrymore”, “Love Galore”, “The Weekend”, and “Broken Clocks”. As of March 2018, the album has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for accumulating over 1,000,000 in album-equivalent units and pure sales. The album and its songs were nominated for four Grammy Awards, while SZA was nominated for Best New Artist.
