The clip, which you can watch below, sees the R&B star reminiscing about a past lover as she walks the streets and rooftops of New York in the Bradley J. Calder directed video.
It features team-ups with with Phoebe Bridgers (on ‘Ghost In The Machine’), Travis Scott (‘Open Arms’) and Don Toliver (‘Used’). The album’s closing song, ‘Forgiveless’, features the late Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
SZA recently confirmed that the cover art for ‘SOS’, was inspired by a photo of Princess Diana.
The cover features SZA sitting on the edge of a white diving board, surrounded by deep blue water. The photograph of Princess Diana was taken in 1997, and sees her in a similar pose aboard a yacht during a trip in Portofino, Italy, also surrounded by the sea. Fans spotted similarities between the two images earlier this week, sharing their observations with SZA on social media.
“Originally I was supposed to be on top of a shipping barge, but in the references that I pulled for that, I pulled the Diana reference,” SZA said when asked about the reference during a recent interview with Hot 97. “Because I just loved how she isolated she felt, and that was what I wanted to convey the most.”
Reviewing the album, NME awarded ‘SOS’ five stars and said it was “a comeback album well worth the wait”.
It added: “The US star’s first album in five years – and her last ever, she says – is sprawling, superb and rarely puts a foot wrong.”
