SZA Talks About Retiring After Her Sophomore Album With ‘Flaunt’ Magazine
In a recent interview with Flaunt magazine, SZA who’s real name is Solana Imani Rowe, revealed her sophomore album may just be her last. Explaining further why this may be, the first lady of TDE (Top Dawg Entertainment) admitted she’s “still miserable”.
In her own words:
“My world got so much smaller so fast. I have so much to write about. I feel like I’m in a cage. I’m making the best album of my life for this next album and I know that… because it’s going to be my last album.”
According to the interviewer, the star was grinning when delivering the news to Flaunt. This however isn’t the first time she flirted with the idea. Before dropping Ctrl, SZA no longer wanted to entertain the idea of making music due to the stress of expectations and delivering an outstanding project. She went on to state, she now believes “God didn’t give me the Grammys, because he knows I would have quit, like I have nothing else to do”.
Earlier this year, the singer/songwriter was nominated for five Grammy’s which many were proud and excited about. Unfortunately, she did not go home with any but let’s not even get into that! Despite this, SZA’s finally received the attention and spotlight she deserved after being in the music industry for so many years. ‘Ctrl’ sold over one million sales since it’s release, both ‘Love Galore’ and The Weekend’ are now double-platinum, whereas ‘Broken Clocks’ and Garden (Say It Like That) are gold.
After dropping such a fire album, advising and influencing young adults in her relatable songs and more, we really hope this is not true!
