And just like that, SZA’s leveling up to new career heights. Ever since her debut album made a splash on the internet, fans and celebrity friends have been sharing covers of their favorite Ctrl songs, and dance routines are sure to get their fare share of spotlight. Now, however, one of the most well known college marching bands has added her fan favorite song to their performance catalogue.
Florida A&M University’s Marching 100 band put their spin on SZA’s “The Weekend.” ThankGod4Cody, a key producer on the album, caught wind of the footage and posted in on Instagram, humbled by hearing his work transcend the life-changing album.
Aside from FAMU’s feat, bands have a known knack for memorializing the year’s most popular tunes and flipping them into football game jam sessions. Take what Southern University’s Human Jukebox band and Dancing Dolls did with Drake’s “Controlla” last year.
Here’s to all the dope covers sure to pop up this homecoming season.
