TDE really shone this year with at least two outstanding albums — Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. and SZA’s ctrl. Fresh off 5 GRAMMY nominations for best new artist, best R&B performance, best rap/sung performance, best R&B song, and best urban contemporary album, SZA appeared on Saturday Night Live tonight for her debut performance.
Tonight’s SNL show was hosted by actor and musician James Franco. Assisted by choir and an all girl band, SZA performed a lovely rendition of her latest single ‘The Weekend’ for her first outing. She later hit the stage again for the Travis Scott featured hit, ‘Love Galore’. Watch her incredible performance below (via mwp).
SZA is up for Best New Artist GRAMMY against contenders like Alessia Cara, Julia Michaels, Khalid, and Lil Uzi Vert.
