SZA Writes an Emotional Thank You Letter After Receiving Five Grammy Nominations
SZA is grateful
On Tuesday morning, the 2018 Grammy nominations were announced. One of the big winners was TDE star SZA, who is up for five Grammys, including Best New Artist, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best R&B Performance.
A day after the announcement was made, SZA went to her Instagram and wrote a passionate statement describing how she got to this point.
In the statement, SZA describes the insecurities around the making of her landmarkalbum, CTRL. At one point she said she was crying on the phone with TDE CEO Punch, begging him to not put out the album.
Here is a piece of what she wrote:
"I remember feeling like damn, maybe I suck. Maybe I should try something else? Maybe Im just wasting space. Lifes weird...I didnt have any friends growing up. Never gave my parents an opportunity to say, 'Wow my kids killing it.' Didnt graduate or do any fly shit before my Nana died. Been fired from every job I ever had."
This is an interesting letter to read when you consider all the delays CTRL went through.
