Throughout the performance, SZA sailed through her standout song effortlessly, as her backup singers appeared, all sitting down in chairs, donning olive green sweaters.
The 27-year-old R&B songstress brought her mom and grandmother to her very first Grammys show, where the New Jersey-born artist received five Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist, Best New R&B song (“Supermodel”), Best New Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Love Galore”), and Best Urban Contemporary Album (CTRL), but the TDE crooner lost in every category, which fans weren’t happy about.
SZA going 0 for 5 sucks. And I really really hope she gets even more noms with the next album but man CTRL feels like one of those special albums that an artist spends the rest of their career chasing.
