SZA marks the release of her long-awaited sophomore album ‘S.O.S’ with the video for ‘Nobody Gets Me.’

The emotionally-raw track – much like its housing LP – finds the singer in a pensive space. Indeed, she sings:

“I don’t wanna see you with anyone but me? Nobody gets me like you
How am I supposed to let you go? Only like myself when I’m with you
Nobody gets me, you do.”

‘Nobody’ has been paired with a monochrome visual, which was directed by Bradley J. Calder.

Few vocalists can rival the chart stats of Bruno Mars over the last decade.

When not leading the list of accumulated Hot 100 top 10 hits (among males), he’s spotted in the exclusive club of acts who have spent over 250 career weeks on the same tally.

His Billboard 200 record isn’t anything to shake a stick at either.

Since his 2010 debut effort, ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans,’ he’s never seen an album premiere outside of the hitlist’s top 3.  What’s more, that particular set – which features some of his most beloved hits like ‘Just the Way You Are,’ ‘Grenade,’ ‘The Lazy Song,’ and ‘Marry You’ – looks to be hitched to the chart (with no divorce in sight) given its ongoing tenancy.
