She continued before deleting the comments. “Tonight was the test, that settles that,” she added. “I jus wanna be left alone my priorities are fucked up. They been fucked up. I need space goodbye.”

Just last week, SZA canceled select dates on “The Championship Tour” after suffering a vocal injury. “I’ve been touring for 11 months. This didn’t happen overnight . Ive been troubleshooting for a while now and Usually steroids and pushing through help,” she explained. “They don’t this time. I’m not sick my voice just won’t fucking work. If I don’t pause now I’ll be forced to pause permanently . I’m genuinely sorry for every face,voice ,and energy field I won’t be touching ! I’m literally taking as many steroids as I can to speed this up!! Its a waiting game and super weird to be blamed for stuff outta my control but I get it ! again .. I’m sorry..I’ll be right back . Pray for me or don’t . Preciate u either way.”
SZA, who dropped a video for “Garden (Say It Like Dat)” earlier this month, is now readying a deluxe edition of her critically-acclaimed debut Ctrl.
