SZA recently shared that she originally wanted to sign with Odd Future over TDE. But, she said, “Quiet as it’s kept, I wanted to be with, like, Odd Future. I felt more like a Clancy girl.” SZA explained why she signed with TDE, “Punch believed in me.”

Her SOS album has already achieved platinum status, but she thought she would get only some of this success with this project. She continued, “I don’t expect anything. I’m ready for the hate, or backlash, or disappointment… I’m not expecting people to be like, ‘Oh, my God, this album is so good.’ I’m expecting people to be like, ‘Y’all hyped this b**ch up too much.’ People just sweep me into this conversation of RnB, and like — whatever. It’s like, yeah, but I can do so much more. I can do anything… That’s what makes a pop star — when they can do multifaceted, and it all hits.” Get to know SZA better by diving into the song rankings from “Ctrl”.
