SZA shared SOS on Friday, five years following the release of her debut album, Ctrl. The album was supported by the singles, "Good Days", "I Hate U", and "Shirt." It contains features from Don Toliver, Phoebe Bridgers, and Travis Scott, as well as the late Ol' Dirty Bastard. On the day of the album's release, she shared a music video for “Nobody Gets Me."

Speaking with Consequence for a new cover story, SZA reflected on SOS being her first album in five years.

"It's my first album in five years, so I'm ready to be a different person and step into this new part of my life," she explained. "Really exemplify who this character is and get to know myself better while everyone else gets to know me live at the same time."

While she's been quiet on the music front for some time, SZA has been performing at festivals over the years. She recently explained that her collaboration on SOS with Phoebe Bridgers came together over a DM because they couldn't meet up at various festivals.
