Congrats are in order for our good sis SZA! Babygirl is making history! She is the first female artist to have an album spend its first three weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 since Beyonce’s “BEYONCÉ.”
SZA has started the new year off in a big way and officially secured her third straight week at number one, on the Billboard 200 chart. After a 5-year hiatus, the St. Louis born singer-songwriter delivered a 23-track album entitled “SOS” that talked about love, sex, romantic entanglements and heartbreak.
At the time of its initial release, “SOS” had the biggest R&B streaming week ever and this past week, it sold 128,000 units. But wait, there’s more! According to Chart Data, it now becomes the first R&B album by a female artist to spend its first three weeks on the Billboard 200 at number one, since Beyonce‘s 2013 “BEYONCÉ” album.
Let’s not act like that isn’t major! SZA collaborated with Travis Scott, Phoebe Bridgers, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Don Toliver just to name a few.
announced the dates for her first-ever arena tour on Tuesday (Dec. 13). The 2023 S.O.S North American Tour — named after the singer’s just released sophomore album — is slated to kick off on Feb. 21 in Columbus, OH at the Schottenstein Center. It will swing through Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Okland, Seattle, and Vancouver. All this before wrapping up on March 22 with a gig at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum.

SZA’s Banging Body
SZA’a album isn’t the only trending topic. Her BBL and recent time spent in Hawaii with producer, ThankGod4Cody is too! She showed off her beautiful body in a viral Instagram post currently trending across social media.
This post comes just weeks after the “Good Days” singer admitted to getting the wildly popular BBL procedure on the title track of her chart-topping new album SOS.
“So classic, that a** so fat, it look natural, it’s not.”– SZA
She referred to having a procedure done again in the song “Conceited,” singing: “I just got my body done, ain’t got no guilt about it. I just heard your opinion, I could’ve did without it.”
Fans showered SZA with love and support and commended her for being honest and transparent.
One user took Twitter and said, “This is the most natural “got my body done”… not mad at it.” Similarly, another user said, “I’m glad she’s standing on it with no shame. There’s no shame to have.” She goes on to say, “YALL need to keep this same energy when you try to shame other women for it tho.”
As for her much-deserved lavish vacation in Hawaii, she was spotted on the beach grinning ear-to-ear with producer ThankGod4Cody, who’s credited on 7 songs on the history-making R&B album.
Actually, SZA and Cody have been collaborators for years. Evidently, there may be more to the relationship than we actually know. Only time will tell. But, if our girl is happy, then we’re happy!
