AceShowbiz - SZA's new album "S.O.S." seemingly will become a big hit for her. According to Chart Data, the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2017's "Ctrl" has already sold over 500,000 units in the United States prior its release.
Chart Data reported the news via Twitter on Monday, December 5. "@sza's 'SOS' has already sold over 500,000 units in the US prior to release," it announced. It also noted that the album's success follows the inclusion of "Good Days", "I Hate U" and "Shirt".
Earlier on Monday, SZA revealed the record's tracklist. The album, which is scheduled to release on Friday, December 9, spans 23 songs and has guest appearances from Phoebe Bridgers, Don Toliver, SZA's "Love Galore" collaborator Travis Scott (II) and the late Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard.
"S.O.S." will also include a single titled "Blind", which SZA performed in the Saturday, December 3 episode of "Saturday Night Live". The 33-year-old R&B star, clad in a brown shirt and tie, transformed the studio into a tranquil ocean landscape for her acoustic performance.
SZA also belted out "Shirt" on the NBC sketch show. She embraced an ethereal vibe for her live performance and was joined by two background dancers in front of a screen projecting blue astral images. She looked slick in an oversized Harley Davidson shirt, with her vocals sounding perfectly throughout the track.
Of her album, SZA said that her new album is "a little angry." She told PEOPLE, "The sound is a little bit of literally everything. It's a little angry as an overview, but some of it is really beautiful and soft and heartfelt. It's about heartbreak, it's about being lost, it's about being pissed."
"It's my first album in five years, so I'm ready to be a different person and step into this new part of my life," the "Good Days" hitmaker, born Solana Rowe, added. "Really exemplify who this character is and get to know myself better while everyone else gets to know me live at the same time."
