SZA long-awaited debut, CTRL, is finally here.
Released via RCA/TDE, the project boasts 14 tracks, with a number of big name guests, including labelmate Kendrick Lamar on “Doves in the Wind”, Travis Scott on the single “Love Galore”, James Fauntleroy on “Wavy”, and Isaiah Rashad on “Pretty Little Birds”.
SZA previously told The Breakfast Club that Ctrl is a concept album. “I’ve lacked control my whole life and I think I’ve craved it my whole life. I couldn’t really arrive at it and now, I’m not really looking to arrive at it anymore,” she said. “I’m just happy to be present. It’s weird. If you try to control a future moment, it’s impossible. There’s no such thing as control anyway. It’s just a concept, a word, a fantasy. But if you focus on the way you feel in the now and what you do with the now, I feel like it leads to having true control in the future.”
