After years on anticipation, TDE’s first lady SZA has released her debut album CTRL. The 14-track effort was executive produced by Top Dawg and features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, James Fauntleroy, and Isaiah Rashad.
SZA described Ctrl as 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,” SZA told “The Breakfast Club.” “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.”
