Time out! SZA just sat down and already she’s ready to get up and leave. That’s right folks, the beautiful singer we’ve all grown to love is already talking about retirement.
In a new interview with Flaunt magazine, the singer, who gained world wide notoriety following the success of her debut album, CTRL, suggested that her next album will be her last.
“I’m still miserable,” the singer told the publication. “My world got so much smaller so fast. I have so much to write about. I feel like I’m in a cage. I’m making the best album of my life for this next album and I know that… because it’s going to be my last album.”
The good news is, the singer delivered the news “with a grin”, so she may not be done with her fans just yet. She has, however, hinted in the past about chucking deuces to music. “I actually quit,” she wrote back in 2016.
The big revelation is incredibly shocking considering her level of success, which includes picking up five Grammy nominations this year. (Best new artist, best R&B song, best urban contemporary album, best rap/sung performance, and best R&B performance.)
While the St. Louis native hinted about a possible retirement, she also opened up about what life could have ben like if she didn’t tap into the world of music.
“I thought I’d be a scientist, traveling around the world on some etymology shit,” the 27-year-old, who will be performing at Coachella next month, said. “Or working for Greenpeace. Or working in an animal conservatory. Or working at a law firm with a popping corner office and a Porsche. Maybe fashion. Marketing or advertising. I just knew that I was going to have a large gate and a dog that I loved.”
