AFROPUNK veteran SZA made fans lose their minds last night when she dropped a RZA-narrated video teasing the release of her hugely anticipated new album ‘CTRL‘. The follow up to SZA’s stellar 2014 album, ‘Z’, ‘CTRL’—out June 9 via Top Dawg Entertainment—comes after more than a year in the making.

Now sure how the song review selection works? However here is a link to our latest release "It Could Have Been Me". It is dedicated to the memory of Trayvon, Eric, Michael and Oscar, and our contribution to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Thanks
