SZA | "Ctrl" Survivor | Round 4 | RACE

Moderators: biscuits, FreakyFlyBry

 

Postby bluecherry » Tue Nov 14, 2017 12:04 pm

The debut studio album by american R&B artist SZA was released in June, earlier this year. The phenomenally solid album has taken the world by storm and led to her becoming one of the year's breakout artists. Certified gold, over 200 songs were recorded and SZA incorporated a lot of spontaneity when recording, sometimes opting to freestyle.

Being given 86 at Metacritic (indicating universal praise) and universally praised by critics for her raw lyrics and confessional tone, the album is my personal favourite of the year.

delicious slow jams with delicate yet powerful vocals and intimate insights into femininity, self-esteem and youth


an opulent, raw R&B album that constantly tests the borders of the genre


the full package in terms of artistry: killer singing and songwriting abilities with a distinct perspective on life, love and destiny


This is "Ctrl"...

Just a quick question why did Garden and Broken Clocks have to go when Anything also only had one vote? Love them both as well :cry:

I get that but there was a 3 song tie and my votes would be tie breakers..
Yea, I'm out of this survivor.

The round was open for a while. It's essentially manipulating the results, as you know the results and then vote - that's not very fair for everyone else. Sorry that you won't be participating. My favourite song (Garden) has just left, but that's the way survivors work. If you don't vote on time, your favourite song might leave - that's it.
