Announcing the virtual event on Twitter, the TDE artist shared that the 50-minute set, her first in two years, will include performances of the album and “all the new stuff.” She added in a separate tweet, “HAPPY CTRL ANNIVERSARY[.] thank you for changing my life ….it’s gone so much farther than I ever expected[.] I don’t even have words today just reflecting. In the meantime I LOVE YOU. THANK YOU.. see u on the 17th.”
Prior to the announcement, she also sent out a tweet asking people to hit up Travis Scott for a performance of “Love Galore.” She wrote, “Can somebody ask Travis to perform love galore w me one last time for old times sake. Ion got his number lol.” Her collaborator got wind of the tweet and replied, “Of courseeeee. 1 last time, a couple more times !!!! When and where? We got the fest coming soon Love galore and Good dayzzzz.”
Ctrl marked SZA’s first studio album and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The now-double platinum record also earned her GRAMMY nominations for Best New Artist, Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Performance for “The Weekend,” Best R&B Song for “Supermodel” and Best Rap/Sung Performance for “Love Galore.”
Tickets for SZA’s American Express UNSTAGED set is available now on the official website.
