Many weren't sure if the singer was going to continue making music after she took to Twitter last year to express her frustration with her label TDE, which also represents Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q.

SZA clarified her statement during an interview with Complex in November, saying she and the label's co-president, Terrence “Punch” Henderson, had settled their communication issues and that there were more personal reasons that had her contemplating leaving music behind.

“I’ll probably just do something different, something visual, probably film,” she said. “I’m really frustrated, and I’m kind of over it. I have a lot of anxiety and there’s a lot going on in my life.”

For now, fans can at least look forward to CNTRL, which, according to Billboard, will also include yet-to-be-released tracks called "Temporary Lover" and a Travis Scott collaboration reportedly titled "Love Galore."
