American R&B singer has announced the release of her long-awaited second studio album ‘S.O.S’ next month.
The singer opened up on the reason why she delayed releasing the album. According to her, her grandmother’s battle with Alzheimer’s and the COVID-19 pandemic has made it harder to release the album.
There has been a long gap when SZA released an album. Her last album titled “Ctrl” was released in 2017. She disclosed that she found it difficult to record another album as she was dealing with challenges in her life.
Speaking to Billboard magazine, the star – whose real name is Solána Imani Rowe – explained: “It’s not like the album pressure, it’s just, life is fffing hard.
“To be expected to do anything at a high level while life is life-ing is fffing crazy. This isn’t meant for a person, it’s meant for a machine.”
“I feel like music, in this capacity, I don’t see longevity.
“I like to create, I like to write, I like to sing, and I like to share. But I don’t know if chasing after superstardom or whatever I’m supposed to be doing right now is sustainable for me. I’mma take a good swing at it, and I’mma give ’em my absolute best.”
