Singer SZA has yet to released her debut album, “A,” but whenever it does release, it may be her last.
The singer recently made her problems with her record label public and during a new interview with Complex, revealed she has new plans after putting out her album.
“I’ll probably just do something different, something visual, probably film,” SZA, whose real name is Solána Rowe, told Complex. “I’m really frustrated, and I’m kind of over it. I have a lot of anxiety and there’s a lot going on in my life.”
In October, SZA tweeted her disdain for Top Dawg Entertainment co-president, Terrence “Punch” Henderson, saying he could release her album “if he ever feels like it.” While the tweets have since been deleted, SZA downplayed the incident, saying she has no problems with the label, which is also home to Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q.
“Me and Punch never get along — that’s every day,” she said. “They call me one of the homies. We’re all different, and that was hard to understand [at first] because they’re tough-love people and hard to read, but I dig it now. I don’t have any issues with my label. My label has been nothing but supportive of everything I’ve wanted to do.”
While SZA may not know what’s next for her, she does want to complete her debut album. “Completing this [album] and these last couple of moments on the clock before this project is done are definitely the most pivotal moments of my life,” she told Complex.
Although finishing the album is the next step for the singer, she can’t assure fans as to what is next in her career. “I’m definitely committed to completing this and I think — we’ll take it from there,” she said.
In May, SZA previewed the album and told Entertainment Weekly she was “exposing a lot of skeletons” and “laying everything to bed” on the project.
