SZA is out here winning heart’s and Grammy nominations!!
So, knowing how talented SZA is it was pretty easy to predict she would be the breakout artist of 2017, even though she has been making dope ass music since her first EP in 2012.
She has released three EP’s – See.SZA.Run, S, and Z prior to her studio album CTRL.
SZA is the most nominated female artist for the 2018 Grammy’s getting 5 noms for her album CTRL.
Huge congratulations to you SZA!!!!
She is one of the most beloved artist of today and here is why she holds our hearts (for those who do not follow her on social media).
SZA expressed her gratitude for her award nominations via Instagram.
“I remember pretending to be vegan cause that’s all I could afford lol (chips avocado n salad mix) I remember sleeping on everyone’s couch cause I missed the train AGAIN (thank yall for having me lol ). Sold my beloved $500 grillz for 50 bucks at the gold shop for train fair( I was SICK ? lol ). I BEGGED Punch for writers on this project cus I thought no one would ever like me the way I was. He said “U don’t need em”. I remember crying cus I didn’t have any hits or a quantifiable “sound”. I remember feeling like damn maybe I suck. maybe I should try something else? Maybe I’m jus wasting space, Life’s weird. I didn’t have any friends growing up. Never gave my parents an opportunity to say “wow my kids killing it” didn’t graduate or do any fly shit before my nana died. Been fired from every job I ever had. I remember sobbing on the phone w punch pleading for the album not to come out cause I couldn’t take the embarrassment. Just wanted another week. This entire thing puts my wildest dreams to shame. I dunno what to say cause I dunno how to accept its even happening to me lol ? I’ve never won anything in my life even until this week (THANK YOU SOULTRAIN AWARDS!!) it all just feels strange somehow BUT IM SO OVERWHELMINGLY GRATEFUL FOR THIS STRANGENESS!! . I’m so in awe of Gods plan. I just wanna live up to it. Thank you for listening to me. thank you for understanding me. thank u for bonding w my thoughts just the way they were. INFINITE GRATITUDE to the Recording Academy for this INCREDIBLE honor. I can’t even believe I’ve been considered. God bless every person who worked on this album or gave it an ear (specially the producers of the century @somethingnebula @iam_c_lang @thankgod4cody ?) . Thank you Top and Punch for believing in me no matter what (even when I’m on your LAST nerves?) . Thank u RCA for giving me new wings?? THANK YOU GOD FOR THIS LIFE I DONT UNDERSTAND . #Ctrl.. a concept . #mygrannynominatedfor5grammys #TDE.”
We love you and wish you many blessings SZA!!
