As footage circulating on Twitter reveals, SZA performed a cover of American pop rock act Wheatus’ 2000 single “Teenage Dirtbag” during a recent show of hers. Notably, the TDE songstress unveiled her live rendition of “Teenage Dirtbag” while delivering her Splendour in the Grass festival-set in Australia this past weekend.

Originally released in July 2000 as the lead single for Wheatus’ debut studio album and self-titled LP, “Teenage Dirtbag” received a great deal of commercial success in the United Kingdom, Australia and Europe, although it only managed to peak at No. 7 on the Alternative Songs chart in the United States. In Australia, the song earned the title of second best-selling single of 2000, having been certified platinum three times and spent four weeks holding the top spot of the Australian charts; besides Australia, “Teenage Dirtbag” also found a strong following in Austria and Belgium, earning the No. 1 titles in those areas as well. “Teenage Dirtbag” also hit the No. 2 spots on charts in Ireland, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Besides the aforementioned Wheatus cover, SZA also debuted a portion of a new and unreleased track known as “Brace Yourself.” While officials details concerning that track are scarce, the song was has been teased and previewed on social media in recent months.
