She also performed ‘Kill Bill’ and ‘Snooze’ at the show.She also spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about her feat, as well as her eagerly awaited third LP ‘Lana’.
When asked to comment on the status of the record, SZA was reserved. “You know, this round, I actually don’t want to say anything,” she told the publication.
“Just because I feel like I do myself a disservice because you can shift the energy of the album.”SZA continued: “You got to let it form itself because I’m not really forming anything. I’m just kind of here while energy is forming and I’m just trying to allow it to do what it needs to do, and my voice just follows whatever the frequency is.
In conclusion, the Top Dawg Entertainment signee said: “I feel like I want to allow it to finish shaping itself and form itself before I speak on it and possibly change the trajectory of what it could be. But, I will say, I’m in a beautiful space creatively and I feel just very new.”SZA preforming “DTM (aka Diamond Boy)” on @Apple Music Live.
