The producer transforms the CTRL standout and platinum certified single into an upbeat blend of funk and dance, making the song’s memorable and catchy chorus that much better.

Recently, SZA served as the musical guest for Saturday Night Live, performing songs “Love Galore” and “The Weekend.”

The artist is also up for five Grammy Awards including Best New Artist, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best R&B Performance. Following the announcement of the nominees, SZA took to Instagram to share an emotional letter about the nominations.

“I remember feeling like damn, maybe I suck. Maybe I should try something else? Maybe I’m just wasting space. Life’s weird…I didn’t have any friends growing up. Never gave my parents an opportunity to say, ‘Wow my kids killing it.’ Didn’t graduate or do any fly shit before my Nana died. Been fired from every job I ever had,” SZA wrote.
