SZA Says She Doesn’t ‘Have Any More Goals’ Following Banner Year With ‘SOS’

At 34 years old, SZA‘s bucket list is already completely checked off. In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, the R&B/pop star confessed that she doesn’t have any more goals for her music career — because she’s already done them all.


“I don’t have any more goals, and that sounds terrible, but … I have already gone platinum,” she told Lowe. “I didn’t think I would ever go platinum. I sold a bunch of records. I got to meet Stevie Wonder, I got to meet Beyoncé and work with her, I got to meet Frank Ocean. My mom came and my dad came to all these cool countries to see me perform. I’ve had sold out shows, I got to headline a festival.”

“Like, what else do I want?” she continued. “I’m nominated for Grammys. I’ve won a Grammy. I’m done, for me, personally. … Anything past this is so much more than I wanted, thought of, dreamed of.”

The “Kill Bill” singer recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of her career-catapulting sophomore album SOS, which spent 10 weeks atop the Billboard 200 and is in the running for 2024’s Grammy album of the year. Earlier this year, she was named Billboard‘s 2023 Woman of the Year.

“a day late but Happy 1 year anniversary to an album that is ACTIVELY CHANGING MY LIFE,” she wrote on Instagram Sunday (Dec. 10). “I haven’t processed this year AT ALL cause it’s still happening .. this is beyond my wildest dreams . I never imagined we’d accomplish a fraction of the accolades that came from this.”

She’s since teased that a deluxe version of SOS titled LANA is on its way, posting six different versions of its cover art on Instagram months after telling fans at a September show in Brooklyn: “The deluxe is like a whole ‘nother album, and it’s called Lana. It’s seven to 10 songs.”
