Our long national nightmare is over.

Just as TDE head honcho Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith promised at the end of December, SZA's long-delayed debut will kick off TDE's 2017 release schedule.

On Thursday evening (January 13), the singer-songwriter appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform her new single "Drew Barrymore" and to announce the title of her long-overdue studio debut, CTRL.
