Drew Barrymore
by SZA
(29 plays) | (0 fans)

Speaking on the conception of the album, SZA stated that she had spent four years just doing music: "I’ve been burying friends, burying family members, burying weight, the way I feel about myself, the way I feel about God, the way I process information." The album was also inspired by SZA's view of control in her life. Speaking on this she stated "Ctrl is a concept. I’ve lacked control my whole life and I think I’ve craved it my whole life."

From mystery collective SAULT's second great album of 2020 - "a sublime, soul-affirming masterpiece of transcendent musical power" - there are "moments... when you realize, in the middle of the fast and hard-driving “I Just Want to Dance,” that the lyrics have moved abruptly from dancefloor-loving lines like the title to “We lost another life” to “Why do my people always die?” https://variety.com/2020/music/reviews/saults-untitled-rise-album-review-1234775193/
