SZA’s Debut Album ‘CTRL’ Is Finally Here [LISTEN]
The 14-track album is led by the singles "Drew Barrymore," "Love Galore" featuring Travis Scott and the recently released "Broken Clocks." SZA's TDE labelmates show up for assists, including Isaiah Rashad on "Pretty Little Birds" and Kendrick Lamar on "Doves In the Wind," which dropped last night. James Fauntleroy also shows up on the interlude "Wavy."
“All I got is these broken clocks / I ain’t got no time / Just burning daylight / Still up still up / Its still love its still love,” she sings on the melodic track, which she's named as a favorite on her new collection.
Widely celebrated for her writing ability (she's written for Rihanna and Beyonce), and her ability to delve into the complexities of relationships and the things that make us human, SZA says this project was about her growth.
"I never really talked about relationships in a direct way," SZA told The Breakfast Club in a recent interview. "I used to be very metaphorical, very figurative, and also just kind of scared to talk about the way I felt in a literal way."
