Following fever-pitch anticipation, SZA premieres new single + official video ’Shirt’

Today, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Grammy award-winning, chart-topping, and multi-platinum selling recording artist SZA, officially releases the new single and video “Shirt.” The highly anticipated track and Dave Meyers-directed visual are available now at all digital music providers via TDE/RCA Records. Click here to listen/watch.

First teased in 2020, the Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins production has had a rally cry for its release ever since. Its Quentin Tarantino-esque visual finds the beloved songstress flexing her acting chops opposite star of FX’s Atlanta, Lakeith Stanfield (viewers will remember him from the “I Hate U” visualizer). From beginning to end, SZA commands each scene with a fervent  prowess; fans will see more of her acting skills in her feature film debut in the upcoming movie Tuna Melt by Eddie Huang.

The new single follows the 2022 TIME100 Next cover star’s nominations at the 2022 American Music Awards for “Favorite R&B Song,” “Favorite Female R&B Artist,” and “Favorite R&B Song;” in addition to her Soul Train Music Awards nominations for “Best R&B/Soul Female Artist” and “The Ashford And Simpson Songwriter’s Award” for “I Hate U.” Over the summer she released Ctrl (Deluxe) which provided a special revisit to her revered major label debut, stocked with unreleased music that offered listeners a deeper insight and breadth to the beloved narrative presented by the original.

 The original Ctrl scored SZA five Grammy nominations and has been streamed over 2.3 billion times worldwide since its release on TDE/RCA in 2017. The now 3xRIAA-certified Platinum album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart, No. 2 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. In 2022 alone it sold over 600,000 units and is the 10th best-selling female album this year in the country and 50th best-selling album this year overall. Ctrl has remained on the Billboard 200 chart since its release, making SZA the first black female artist in history with an album to spend 280 consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200 chart.
