Had it not been for the constant album delays or the impulsive “I actually quit” tweet, SZA probably wouldn’t have had the stellar year her latest album CTRL has given her. On the heels of her Saturday Night Live debut, SZA hit New York City on Monday night (Dec. 11) for one of her last tour stops and treated the crowd to a very special guest.
Among a string of her CTRL cuts, SZA journeyed back to her 2014 EP Z and performed “HiiiJack” as well as “Child’s Play” — but not without her collaborator Chance the Rapper. In a fan-shot clip from the concert, Chance emerged on stage to deliver his verse as he and SZA took turns singing to each side of the venue.
SZA is seen bouncing to the slow-burner in pure bliss, assisting Chance with his lines as he raps, “I crowd surf in a cypher/ Scuba in my shower, take an Uber to my neighbors/ Used to pay the piper, till Peter picked it better.”
A few days prior, SZA commanded the SNL stage on her own, performing CTRL‘s biggest singles, “Love Galore” and “The Weekend.”
