A look through SZA’s career
The 29-year-old singer and songwriter is a talented one. But her career has gone through some ups and downs in the past. She delayed the release of her album “Ctrl” for two years because of anxiety and the thought of sharing her music. However, her album was No. 3 on the Billboard charts in 2018 and was the most-nominated female performer in the Grammys. Later, her vocal cords swelled and she had to step back to get back in form. During this time she contemplated to retire officially many times and said her next album “WWW.” would be her last. But she has always managed to make it back to the limelight. Reports claim that her new album is coming out in 2020 and that everything looks good so far.
