New surprises are in store from SZA. After teasing five unreleased songs on the deluxe edition of her 2017 debut album Ctrl, on Thursday (June 9), the singer-songwriter dropped seven new tracks on the album’s re-release, also celebrating it’s five-year anniversary.

Along with “Kiss Me More,” Rowe has released singles in 2020 and 2021 including “I Hate U,” “Good Days,” and “Hit Different” with Ty Dolla $ign, and has been featured on “No Love” with Summer Walker and Cardi B, the “fue mejor” remix with Kali Uchis and “The Other Side” with Justin Timberlake.
