‘Good Days’, released on Christmas Day (December 25), marked SZA’s second solo release of 2020 following the single ‘Hit Different’, which features an appearance from Ty Dolla $ign.
Arriving last September, the latter track was SZA’s first piece of new music as a lead artist since her 2017 debut album ‘CTRL’.
NME hailed the record for “effortlessly wind[ing] between narratives and genres like it’s child’s play” in a four-star review, adding: “This isn’t a star in the making, it’s a fully-fledged talent who’s practically showing off.”
