It’s been over two years since SZA released her debut album, but it is looking like we won’t have long to wait for a follow-up.

Back in June of 2017, US musician SZA shared her debut record, Ctrl. Released almost five years after her first EP, the album was a critical success, topping the US R&B Albums chart and scoring an impressive 8.4/10 from Pitchfork.

Since then, SZA has been hard at work, nabbing an Academy Award nomination for her work with Kendrick Lamar on ‘All The Stars’, and blowing away an eager Splendour In The Grass crowd just last month.

However, when it comes to the topic of album number two, it’s looking as though fans will be receiving new tunes before too long, with the musician revealing in an interview with Kerwin Frost that the record is coming “soon as fuck”.

Throughout the interview, SZA discussed how she’s since found herself working with some pretty huge names, including Post Malone, BROCKHAMPTON, and even Justin Timberlake.

“Before I was like, ‘What the fuck am I doing in the studio with Justin Timberlake right now? This is crazy,'” SZA explained.

“But when I heard his music and we started singing together… It’s like, ‘Oh, we speak the same language. The same frequency.’ I understood where he was going before he could finish a run.”

Of course, with such a well-received debut record, it would be almost expected that an artist like SZA is feeling a little bit of pressure to deliver a follow-up of the same quality. On the contrary, the 28-year-old is cool as a cucumber.

“I was dancing around that in my brain,” SZA explained. “I was like do I care? Everybody I fuck with and respect never had an issue on sophomore albums. People who make real music, no bullshit, have never struggled with a sophomore album.”

While the record’s content features “even more of me being less afraid,” SZA says she is “loving what I’m making right now,” while hinting that she might just start releasing some standalone singles in the meantime.

Whatever the case, as anyone who witnessed SZA’s Splendour set could tell you, the upcoming album from this stunning musician is already on track to be album of the year, well before we’ve even heard the first taste.
