SZA Shuts Down Rumors That She Released A Secret Album
Earlier this week, word spread throughout the internet that a new SZA album had surfaced on streaming platforms without anyone knowing, under a secret alias. Unsurprisingly, the album turned out to be a leak from a third party of some older, unreleased music.
Comethru was uploaded to Apple Music and Spotify on December 4, credited to an artist by the name of “Sister Solana,” and released on a label titled Scissor. The nine-track record appeared to feature verses from Kendrick Lamar, who was billed as his commonly-known alias of “King Kenny.” SZA, along with TDE label heads, ended up confirming to fans that the album is a leak and not something she actually wanted to release.
“These are random scratches from 2015,” she wrote. “Def not new new! But… creative? And scary?” She wrote to her Instagram story. Solana also promised to fans that new music is on the way, which she’s been teasing on Instagram this month. TDE president Punch has also released a statement claiming that the tracks are “old songs” that were “stolen and leaked.” “We are currently fixing the issue,” he continued. This is an issue Top Dawg Ent. has been dealing with a lot recently, as more unreleased songs from their label including scratched Good Kid, m.A.A.d city tracks have leaked to the internet in 2018.
SZA’s last project was 2017’s CTRL, but she’s been teasing an alternate version of the album almost since before the original was released.
It’s sad to see artists’ hard work get leaked in a way they didn’t want the world to hear it, but if this taught us anything, it’s that the fans are most definitely ready for another SZA album.
