Go SZA! First she got the 5 Grammy nominations and now this! Time Magazine has named Sza’s “CTRL” album the “Top Record of 2017.”

According to, Time Magazine said about Sza,  “From relative obscurity, New Jersey artist SZA rose to prominence with witty songs marked by gorgeously sparse R&B production and ironclad melodies; there’s a reason stars like collaborator Rihanna and labelmate Kendrick Lamar are fans,” writes TIME. “Her takes on hookup culture and the pursuit of an authentic life are vividly articulated, too. Like all the best artists, her experience is so specific that it rises to the level of universality: She may be one of a kind, but she’s speaking the truth of a whole generation.”
