Solana Rowe, better known as SZA, will be temporarily removed from TDE’s “Championship Tour” due to issues with her vocal cords.

If you’ve copped tickets to see SZA in your city for Top Dawg Entertainment’s “Championship Tour,” we have some bad news for you. The Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter is going to miss some upcoming dates due to issues with her vocal chords.

On Tuesday (May 22), TDE founder Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith announced the news via Twitter, saying, “I got some bad news. I have to take SZA off for a few days on the tour. Her vocal cords are swollen and she has to rest her voice to prevent any permanent damage. We’ve been monitoring her close and this is the reason she missed the Arizona and New Mexico dates. She’ll see the doctor again in a few days and I’ll update you guys on her status. As for the dates she missed, we’ll figure out a way to make it up to you guys.”
