The response was positive; fans have been waiting for a new SZA project for years.
Hours after the video was released we got news that the wait might be coming to an end.
SZA sent out the following Tweet, confirming that she had signed a major label deal with RCA Records:

Now, details of the deal are still sparse, but we can assume it’s a joint venture, similar to the deals Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q’s have with TDE and Interscope.
TDE CEO Top Dawg, who is known to be a prolific tweeter, was doing his usual social media thing. When someone ask him the question we all had in mind: Is SZA’s CTRL dropping next?

Anyone who’s been following SZA knows she’s had some difficulty getting her CTRL album out. But it looks like that’s old news at this point.
