Prior to this, the Travis Scott-assisted “Love Galore” earned her first platinum certification from the RIAA. “The Weekend” and “Love Galore” appear on the gold-certified Ctrl. A deluxe version of the album is expected to arrive soon.
SZA’s next single off Ctrl will likely be “Doves in the Wind,” which features Kendrick Lamar. Last month, director Nabil posted a photo of the duo in the desert with two dove emojis, likely signifying that he directed the visual.
