The TDE singer shares her first solo single of the new year, “Drew Barrymore.”

The last two years have been pretty big for Top Dawg Entertainment. Every name affiliated with the brand dropped at least one project between 2015 and 2016, and 2017 may bring with it even more. But one name was noticeably absent from the myriad of TDE drops – that of SZA, the lone singer on the Top Dawg brand. Mind you, SZA wasn’t invisible – she dropped “TwoAM,” a sensuous remake of PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Come And See Me”; teamed up with D.R.A.M. on “Caretaker” and with Childish Major on “Happy Birthday”; and popped up on Rihanna’s ANTI; as well as releases from her labelmates Isaiah Rashad and ScHoolboy Q. But SZA’s long-awaited debut? It never surfaced.

That debut album just may make it to the surface in 2017.

On Thursday night, just ahead of New Music Friday, SZA shared a brand-new single, entitled “Drew Barrymore.” It’s the first taste of SZA’s upcoming LP, slated to be called C T R L (and not A like many initially expected). On the nearly four-minute cut, SZA’s lush voice takes center stage over warbling guitars and subtle strings, singing a bluesy tale of star-crossed love. It’s the perfect balance of engrossing yet heartbreaking, SZA’s pleas and apologies (“I’m sorry I wasn’t attractive/ I’m sorry I wasn’t more ladylike,” SZA croons at one point) may hit a little close to home for some listeners.
