SZA Debuts New Single, Reveals Title of Her Forthcoming Debut

After constant setbacks and talk of retirement, SZA is primed to finally unveil her full-length album.
Publish date:

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.

"Drew Barrymore" is one of two new SZA records to surface this week, following "Love Galore," a collaboration with Travis Scott that was previewed at a New York listening event on Wednesday.

While we still don't have a release date for the full-length project—the St. Louis native's first since 2014's Z—we're at least one step further removed from retirement talk.
