SZA GIVES ALBUM UPDATE WHILE ADDRESSING RUMORS SHE’S STEALING SUMMER WALKER’S SPOTLIGHT
Written by Nate Matthews on October 14, 2021
Earlier this week, rumors began circulating that SZA’s long-awaited sophomore album will arrive on November 5, the same day Summer’s Still On It LP is due to be released. The speculation was sparked by a viral tweet erroneously claiming, “SZA has just announced her 2nd studio album titled ‘Alt’ dropping November 5th,” accompanied by a fake cover art and tracklist.
After catching wind of the fan chatter, SZA jumped on Twitter to personally shut down the rumor of her releasing a new album on the same day as Summer Walker. In doing so, however, she also killed any hope of her CTRL follow-up arriving within the next month.
“I jus wanna know y y’all think i would drop same time as summer and I’m ON her album like wut,” the TDE songbird wrote on Monday (October 11) in response to a fan asking if she’s releasing an album in November.
