The much-anticipated 'proper' debut album from the sensational young RnB artist Solana Rowe aka SZA via Top Dawg Entertainment. Ctrl speaks upon SZA’s perspective within previous relationships and the often relatable difficulties that many recognise. The tracks convey themes of love hate heartbreak revenge and self-perception. Her voice can alter beautiful angelic sweetness to sassy spoken-word rap. Somewhere between the house built by Frank Ocean’s monotone and falsetto and Migos’ signature trap cadences SZA’s unique manipulation of language in performance moves far afield of clever euphemisms and the temporary high of rap entendres or gospel runs to focus on the deliberate deconstruction of words. Laced with 14 tracks in total it features guest appearance from the likes of Kendrick Lamar Travis Scott James Fauntleroy and Isaiah Rashada. Production is handled by Antydote Cam O’Bi Bēkon Carter Lang Frank Dukes Terrace Martin and ThankGod4Cody among others.
