SZA is finally getting her due.
After years of working the EP and mixtape circuit, the singer/songwriter released her long-awaited debut album, ‘CTRL,’ in June 2017 – much to fan and critic delight. Housing the well-received cuts ‘Drew Barrymore,’ The Weekend,’ and ‘Broken Clocks,’ it appears the tune fans had the most time for was ‘Love Galore,’ especially after a moving performance of the Travis Scott-assisted song at this year’s BET Awards.
Since that showing and the release of its accompanying music video, ‘Love’ has been getting exactly that on the streaming and digital download front. So much so, this week it cracked the top 40 – a career first for the long unsung singer. With strong suggestion that she’ll rise even higher on next week’s refreshed tally, we anxiously await news at just how high the songbird’s trap-soul single will fly on the Hot 100.
Until then, tuck in below to see who joins her in the chart’s upper half on this week’s TGJ Chart Check:
