Sza Applaud "Big Boys" On Snl The Date For Album Release Disclosed

Just hours after making her first appearance in a Saturday Night Live skit with Keke Palmer, SZA has revealed the date for the release of her sophomore album, S.O.S.

The TDE vocalist uploaded a second enigmatic clip through Instagram on Saturday night, with the remark “December 9 release date” (December 3).

SZA appeared alone in a number of scenes in the teaser, some of which were also seen in the last “PSA” trailer, which she published on her birthday to start the countdown to the film’s release. The “Shirt” singer was also shown lounging on a diving board above a huge body of water in the most recent S.O.S. video.

A portion of the unreleased S.O.S. song “Blind,” which she debuted Saturday night during her second appearance on Saturday Night Live, was also featured in the promotional material.

Similar to the last teaser, SZA’s most recent S.O.S. advertisement ended with the morse code for the distress signal that inspired the album’s title.

In an open conversation with Billboard on Wednesday, November 30, SZA previously revealed the album’s title and a December release date. She also candidly admitted feeling anxious about putting the finishing touches on the eagerly anticipated LP.

The “Love Galore” singer later added: “I only do what I want to do, and this makes me feel free and safe and unrestricted.”

SZA did double duty on Saturday Night Live, debuting her skit as well as performing as a musical guest just before the reveal of the album release.

SZA provided the hook for the parody rap song in the “Big Boys” spoof, which included host Keke Palmer, SNL cast members Cecily Strong, Ego Nwodim, and Punkie Johnson praising the benefits of dating plus-size men during cuffing season.

SZA performed “Shirt” live on her most recent visit on Saturday Night Live, for which she debuted the Lakeith Stanfield-assisted music video on October 28.

The native of New Jersey has been teasing her eagerly anticipated sophomore album for months. She told TMZ in October that she had already recorded over 100 tracks for the collection, which should be released “any day.”

The singer had previously expressed a desire for her Ctrl sequel to be released this summer and attributed the delay on Top Dawg Entertainment boss Terrence “Punch” Henderson.

In contrast, Punch refuted any rumors of hostility between him and SZA in a September interview with Math Hoffa’s podcast My Expert Opinion.

“It’s not really a secret. SZA’s coming very, very soon. We pretty much have the album done…We know exactly when it’s coming out,” he said. “But on the internet, you only get a certain amount of characters. You don’t have time to really go into a full explanation of what’s going on like that when you’re in the moment and tweeting something.”
