During a recent interview with Kerwin Frost Talks, SZA revealed that her sophomore album is on the way.

The “Love Galore” singer said that the follow up to her debut studio album, Ctrl, is coming “soon as f**k.”

“Everybody I f**k with and respect never had an issue on sophomore albums. People who make real music, no bullsh*t, have never struggled with a sophomore album,” SZA said. “It is a little bit to dance in your brain like ‘What do people want from me?’ And then you just gotta make sh*t that feels good.”

The New Jersey native also mentioned during the interview that she recently recorded music with Justin Timberlake, who reached out to her and said that he wanted to collaborate with the singer.

SZA also compared her highly-anticipated second album to cognitive dissonance. The singer said that she’s inspired by the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Billie Holiday, John Coltraine, and Bjork. However, the release date of SZA’s forthcoming second studio project is unclear.
