SZA's last album, Z, came out in 2014. It seemed like we might not get a follow-up when she tweeted, "I actually quit" last fall during a dispute with the head of her label, Terrence "Punch" Henderson. She soon deleted the tweet and now, months later, we've got the first single from her upcoming album, CTRL.
"Drew Barrymore" is what the singer describes as "brown grunge." It's a slow burn and meditation on a tumultuous love life.
"I get so lonely I forget what I'm worth/We get so lonely we pretend that it's worse/I'm so ashamed of myself think I need therapy," she sings. "I'm sorry I'm not more attractive/I'm sorry I'm not more ladylike/I'm sorry I don't shave my legs at night."
