It looks like 2017 will be SZA's year. After a delay on her long-awaited debut album A, Top Dawg Anthony Tiffith hinted on Instagram on December 29 that the project will be coming in 2017. "I just walked in to the offfice," Tiffith captions his video. "It's time to work on my 2017 release schedule... @sza are u ready 2 get them off my head?" View below.
The process of dropping her debut hasn't exactly been easy for SZA. After the project was promised to be out in the summer of 2016, SZA went to Twitter to express her frustrations. "I actually quit," SZA wrote. "@iamstillpunch can release my album if he ever feels like it . Y'all be blessed ." TDE co-founder Punch responded by laughing the comment off.
Later on, SZA clarified to Complex that it wasn't her label's fault for the delay, expressing that she plans on stepping away from music after its release. "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,” SZA explained. "I don’t have any issues with my label. My label has been nothing but supportive of everything I’ve wanted to do.”
SZA's album A will be the follow-up to her first two EPs: S from 2013 and Z from 2014.
