It's the fan favorite of the album, and kinda controversial on Black twitter :lol: .

I don't really like it that much, to be honest. Why controversial?

It's essentially a 'side-hoe' anthem. It's easily my favourite on the record, though.

excluding last week, SZA's CTRL is the 3rd best selling female album in the US so far this year and is at 394k SPS (the 41st best selling album overall).
Pure sales: 81k
Track sales: 181k
Streams: 450M
She's doing 20-25K per week(TOP 15) so let's say it does 45k more from the passed week and this upcoming week's chart that means she would be at 440K total she's moving at a rapid pace and could have the best selling female album this year (Pre-Taylor) eventually.

Very good for a new artist debuting in the streaming era. the music is really fresh and the album has great vibes 8-)

Saw her tour tonight. It was everything. Slay me Solana. :cry:

So far, she has my album of the year. I personally haven't feel in love with an album like this in a long time.

For me, I feel the same. I can't get into her voice. She may grow on me tho...
