Breakout R&B Artist SZA just earned a Gold certification by the RIAA for her album, Ctrl. And if that wasn’t enough, her single “Love Galore” feat. Travis Scott went double platinum.
Although SZA is on fire, she’s just getting started. She has more music debuting soon for her fans and will gain even more of a following being on Maroon 5’s new single, “What Lovers Do.”
On October 10th, SZA was supposed to perform two secret shows in New York City. However, she’s gained such a substantial fan base that hundreds of fans crowded the NY streets, which resulted in the police shutting down one of her shows that day due to complaints. Not a bad problem to have!

SZA was so thrilled about going gold and double platinum. She shared two photos on Instagram with her fans. One photo was of her and her Sony Music Team. She captioned, “Dis feel like really big jewelry. Thanks for changing my life in ways I never imagined. Thank each of you for connecting w this album and making me feel less lonely..less inadequate. Thank u for building this family with me. Thank u for a relationship I couldn’t buy or explain.”

The second photo she shared was in between her two plaques giving a shoutout to her mom with the caption, “One time fuh my mama.”
SZA’s success will continue to climb, and hopefully, she will release another album for her diehard fans sooner than later. Until then, everyone can still appreciate her music by listening to the new gold album Ctrl.
