SZA Announces 'CTRL' Album, Drops 'Drew Barrymore' Single

  /  01.13.2017

SZA takes CTRL on her new album.

After teasing new music, the Top Dawg songstress premieres “Drew Barrymore,” an introspective single off her forthcoming LP, which she debuted on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

The soothing, melodic tack carries candid personal reflections as SZA speaks directly to her lover. “I’m sorry I’m not more attractive,” she sings. “I’m sorry I’m not more ladylike / I’m sorry I don’t shave my legs at night.”

With allusions to therapy, sex, loneliness, and Netflix’s “Narcos,” SZA paints a vivid picture of a complicated relationship.

During a recent New York show, the TDE songbird shared “Drew Barrymore” with a select few, claiming it was inspired by the actress it was named after and her films like Never Been Kissed and Poison Ivy. “I just imagine this being the soundtrack to one of those movies,” she said. “Cue Freddie Prinze, Jr.” That night, she also shared a Travis Scott collaboration, tentatively titled “Love Galore.”

SZA didn’t just perform the new single on “Kimmel,” she also announced the title of her next effort, the follow-up to 2014’s Z. Initially titled A, the project will now be called CTRL.
