SZA took Ctrl of the BET Awards on Sunday (June 25), performing a medley of songs from her recently-released debut album.
Performing in front of a grassy background and some broken down computers and television sets, made to look like her album cover, the TDE songstress kicked things off with “Love Galore.”
Sans Travis Scott, SZA ran smoothly through her La Flame-assisted single, while sporting Champion workout gear under camouflage ski pants.

But “Love Galore” wasn’t the only Ctrl track up SZA’s sleeve. She also performed her naughty song “The Weekend” from the same project.
Rave reviews began pouring in. During the show, Erykah Badu offered SZA kissing emojis and called her “my little hitter.” When someone likened her to a new Fat Belly Bella, Badoula responded: “Wait . We going too far now…Ain’t no shade . I just said we goin too far. That’s my baby. But she’s herself.”
SZA replied: “Bless u you queen mama! me only hits for you…ju said it best . BLESSED TO BE ME . BLESSED TO KNOW U.”
SZA is still celebrating the success of Ctrl, which opened at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. “Love Galore” reached No. 70 on the Hot 100 and last week, she also released the video for “Drew Barrymore” featuring Drew Barrymore herself.
