S.O.S. arrives five years after the release of her last project, Ctrl. SZA recently admitted that she doesn’t expect to release music for too much longer.

“I feel like music, in this capacity, I don’t see longevity,” she told Billboard. “I like to create, I like to write, I like to sing, and I like to share. But I don’t know if chasing after superstardom or whatever I’m supposed to be doing right now is sustainable for me or for anybody. I’mma take a good swing at it, and I’mma give ’em my absolute best.”

She added: “I only do what I want to do, and this makes me feel free and safe and unrestricted.”

SZA isn’t the only artist to mention that they don’t see themselves making music in the future. Kid Cudi recently made similar comments while discussing what he’s got in store.
