SZA Says She Hates Her Label
Written by on May 26, 2021
SZA’s label woes continue.
After publicly complaining about her label last year, the TDE songstress has voiced her frustration once again after her single “Good Days” exited the Billboard Hot 100 this week. The song, released on Christmas Day, peaked at No. 9 and charted for 20 weeks, her biggest solo hit ever.
SZA responded in the comments of an Instagram post by putting her label on blast for seemingly not doing more to keep the single on the charts. “I really hate my label . So much,” she wrote.
It’s unclear if she is referring to TDE or RCA Records.
SZA admits she was “shocked and confused” by the success of “Good Days.” “It wasn’t meant to be a single,” she told “CBS This Morning” earlier this year. “It was just a song that I liked that I kinda put out as a snippet and then people liked it, but it’s like the type of song that I wouldn’t expect…It’s just honest vibes.”
This isn’t the first time SZA has publicly slammed her label. Back in August, she called out Top Dawg Entertainment after fans asked why it was taking so long to release music.
“At this point y’all gotta ask punch. I’ve done all I can do,” she tweeted in reference to TDE president Punch. She also described her relationship with the label as “hostile.”

SZA’s sophomore album has been a long time coming. She has been teasing the follow-up to 2017’s Ctrl including an unreleased song called “Shirt,” produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, which was featured at the end of the “Good Days” video.
Meanwhile, she currently has a top 10 hit with “Kiss Me More,” her collaboration with Doja Cat off the latter’s upcoming album Planet Her.
