SZA quits work on debut album

Rihanna collaborator SZA has ditched plans to release her debut album after an apparent bust up with label bosses.
The singer, who is signed to Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) – the label Kendrick Lamar calls home, had been working on her first official studio project, titled A, for the past few months and she was expected to release the material by the end of the year (16).
SZA previously told Entertainment Weekly A would hit retailers “while everyone is still in a bathing suit”, but the album has still yet to emerge, prompting fans to quiz the rising star about the status of her disc online.
Responding to the inquiries on Twitter, SZA replied, “I actually quit,” before calling out the head of TDE, adding, “@iamstillpunch can release my album if he ever feels like it . Y’all be blessed.”
SZA has yet to offer up any further information about her decision to dump the project, and TDE president Punch has yet to directly comment on the statement, although he did post an image of comic book villain the Joker laughing.
The 25-year-old previously appeared on Rihanna’s Consideration, rapper Wale’s The Need to Know, and Kendrick’s Untitled 04 | 08.14.2014.
