SZA is simply slaying the game. The Broken Clocks singer has just released her second studio album SOS, which she announced all the way back in 2020, and it's taking over the charts. With all the hype around the album, SZA has blessed us with the news that she is taking her talents to the road and going on her first-ever arena tour beginning in February.

Since SZA's debut LP Ctrl, fans have been patiently waiting for the singer's sophomore album - and now that it's finally here five years later, we can say it was worth the wait. The Grammy award-winning musician dropped the album last week, and it's stacked with some of music's best, from Travis Scott to Don Toliver and Phoebe Bridgers. Prior to the release, the Supermodel singer told Complex this album has a "little bit of everything." She told the magazine the album is " a little aggressive" with some "incredibly soft" tracks and some "ballads." All in all, the musician said, "it's all over the place," but "it's just where my heart is."

So now that the album is officially out, SZA took to Instagram to announce it's "time to take this s*** on the road!" The artist uploaded the tour's official flyer with the accompanying 17-day tour dates. Starting in February, the Good Days singer begins her journey in Columbus, Ohio, and ends in Los Angeles, with stops in major cities like New York, Chicago, and Atlanta. Joining her on tour is singer Omar Apollo who dropped his first studio album, Ivory, earlier this year.

As exciting as SZA's new music may be, fans are going to have to hold these 23 tracks near and dear because, apparently, she's going to take a long break before we get any more music from our favorite artist. In a recent cover story from Consequence, the songstress revealed she is "gonna disappear, definitely, for as long as I can." She added, "we kinda knocked it out. I need to shoot as many videos as I can, so I can disappear for longer." We're not necessarily sure where she's disappearing to, but if we thought five years was a long wait last time, we could only imagine what it's going to be next time around...
