R&B Now 2023

R&B Now 2023

SZA has been taking the world by storm since the release of her sophomore album SOS. (Technically, the Ctrl follow-up came out at the tail end of 2022, but it came to dominate R&B and pop music throughout 2023.) SZA’s vulnerability, strength, and candidness made SOS a constant presence atop the Billboard charts, with her first stint at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in her career, as well as the top spot on the Top R&B Albums chart for an unprecedented 50 weeks. Massive hits such as “Kill Bill”—where SZA fantasizes about murdering her ex—and the Babyface-produced madly-in-love ballad “Snooze” are merely a part of SOS’s chart-topping run. The success of her sophomore effort led to SZA receiving nine Grammy nominations—the most of any artist this year. Listen to SZA on R&B Now, and if you hear something you like, add it to your library and stay up to date on the latest and greatest of the genre.
