“God didn’t give me the Grammys, because he knows I would have quit," SZA said, "like ‘I have nothing else to do.’” She hasn't started writing or recording her follow-up to Ctrl yet, though she has been "coming up with little catchphrases," which signals the beginning of her creative process.

The deluxe edition of Ctrl is currently getting its "finishing touches," and will include new songs.
