TDE’s first lady SZA caps off a huge 2017 with icing to her cake… by killing the SNL stage.
On Saturday (Dec. 9) the mellow, wild-haired princess delivered two beautiful performances of the wildly contagious “The Weekend” and the melodic, trap-harmony “Love Galore,” both off her critically acclaimed debut album, Ctrl.
For her first performance, SZA gave fans a true treat as she performed the melody in a rare form. Dressed in an elegant green gown, the R&B beauty, backed by a wind selection and impeccable choir, took the audience to church with the soulful tune. With various festive lights blazing on the singer, SZA gave one of her best performances yet, as her vocals soared throughout the studio set, her stage presence was outstanding and the energy from the band and choir were untouched.
For her second set, she returned in an glowing yellow sweatsuit with a high split. Backed again by the choir and band, SZA delivered yet another beautiful performance. Following the same pattern as the previous performance, SZA delivered another zesty twist to the song, adding more soul, a new verse, and even more of those beautiful vocals that created the platinum hit.
While the year is almost through, the grind does not stop as SZA will finish the rest of “The Ctrl Tour”, as it is expected to end on Sunday (Dec. 17) in St. Louis!
