Twitter Reacts to SZA’s New Album ‘SOS’

The wait is over as SZA releases her sophomore album, “SOS,” which is full of sharp jabs and surprises.

SOS, a 23-track album, is an hour long and includes features from Phoebe Bridgers, Don Toliver, Travis Scott, and the late rapper Russell Tyrone Jones (ODB). The LP was released through Top Dawg Entertainment and RCA Records.

Many argue that SOS is better than her 2017 debut album, CTRL. The tunes are smoother and more relaxed, filled with confidence and some of the most personal revelations.

When it comes to the lyrics, SZA didn’t hold back with the intimate details of her personal life. In the song “Low,” the R&B superstar raps;

“Comin’ down the side of me, I like to get it popping/ But these b—es in my business got me all choosing violence/ If you see me out in public, you don’t know me, keep it silent/ In the bedroom, I will be screaming, but outside, I keep it quiet.”

The LP’s second track, “Kill Bill,” which has already entered the top 10 on Apple Music US, portrays the intense and toxic sentiments of a jealous woman.

“I’m so mature, I got me a therapist to tell me there’s other men,” SZA sings. “I don’t want none, I just want you/ If I can’t have you, no one should/ I  might kill my ex, not the best idea/ His new girlfriend’s next, how’d I get here?/ I might kill my ex, I still love him though”

“Open Arms,” the 20th song, features Travis Scott and is about a woman in love who is overcome with hopelessness and self-doubt. Throughout the song, SZA recognizes that staying in this relationship is causing her to develop self-hatred and self-conscience. By the end of the song, she finds comfort in letting go of her affair.

The lyrics of the song go; “Spent your life being hopeless/ Choking on insecurity/ I know this is bad/ But, please, put a leash on me anyway/ Who needs self-esteem anyway?/ I hate myself to make you stay/ Push me away, I’ll be right here/ With open arms”

This theme runs throughout the album. The songs are delicate and highly personal, accompanied by relaxing beats and melodies.

Since the album’s release, the hashtags “New SZA” and “Damn SZA” have been trending on Twitter, with fans all over the world sharing their views and opinions.
