The “Love Galore” singer explains the crazy measure TDE took to release her album.
In her recent chat with The Guardian, SZA about her overall career, her album, signing to TDE (Top Dawg Entertainment), and more.
In it she touched upon the delayed release of CTRL, saying her label “cut her off” and didn’t really give her an option but to debut it. Don’t mistake it as the stole her music, it was more like an intervention because the singer simply couldn’t make a choice.
“They just took my hard drive from me. That was all. I just kept fucking everything up. I just kept moving shit around. I was choosing from 150, 200 songs, so I’m just like, who knows what’s good any more?”
That being said CTRL isn’t exactly the project she would’ve put together.”Any longer and I probably wouldn’t … I’m also driving myself fucking crazy, so I don’t know. Give me another month and it would have been something completely different.”
But don’t worry, this won’t occur with the next project. SZA is pretty sure the follow up will go a lot smoother.
“No! I have less anxiety about the things that hindered me putting this album out, so I’ll probably be done in the next six months.”
