SZA Thanks Travis Scott for “Being Committed to Freedom of Sound”

Let us praise Travis for his sound freedom commitment, whatever that is.

We still don't have our hands on a confirmed release date for SZA's forthcoming, supremely-delayed debut, CTRL—though, I have been told by several sources it will arrive next month—but last week, the TDE (and now RCA) songstress did release her new, Travis Scott-assisted single "Love Galore."

While the song's accompanying visuals feature a scorned SZA hiring a large, elderly hitwoman to kill Travis, her disdain for her collaborator on screen isn't reflective of how she feels about him in the real world.

5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week

In a tweet sent out on Wednesday (May 3) afternoon, SZA praised Travis Scott for not only helping her to check a line off her collaborator bucket list but for his commitment to "freedom of sound." 

To be clear, I'm not exactly sure what SZA means by "freedom of sound," aside from the ability to commit to creating music in an open-minded manner, but for Travis Scott, a relatively new artist in the grand scheme of the industry, being considered a "dream feature" and a name on any artist's bucket list has to be incredibly flattering.

It wasn't long ago that Scott was able to finally collaborate with "his idol," Kid Cudi, who appeared on two tracks on the Houston native's Gold-certified Birds In Trap Sing McKnight album, released last September.
