Sza gets sexy in Ctrl

After receiving recognition from Top Dawg Ent, it came as no surprise when she signed to the label in 2013. By 2014, Sza released her debut ep titled "Z" which ultimately established her core fan base. Calmly making headlines with her features and the recent single Love Galore which features Travis Scott, Sza stirred up enough buzz for her mainstream debut. By first promoting the album CTRL on her Instagram with a tattoo, Sza created a trend, while many of her loyal fans follow the tattoo art.

With the release of Love Galore, fans and audiences that listened to "Z" can instantly hear the difference in the albums. CTRL is definitely an attempt to appeal to the mainstream audience, but Sza does a good job doing it. Labeled as a conscious neo soul singer, Sza challenges her vocal dynamics, while implementing relatable and common topics in the lyrics. If anyone thought she wasn't sexy before, than you know that she is now. CTRL is about sex, relationships, and insecurities. There are no hidden messages in the album, it's straight to the point. While "Z" plays on the "stay woke" conversations, that stimulates your mind over body and matter. Sza core fans are intrigued by the new sound, knowing now that there's multiple versions of the singer to pick from.

CTRL is a good mainstream album, songs like Love Galore, Prom, and Broken Clocks have the potential to become major hits. There's enough sex appeal inside the album to hold anyone's attention. Her unique voice compliments the content and overall sound of the album. I like the album, but hopes she still remain loyal to the neo soul sound in the future.


  1. I love this album!!! It speaks to my heart

  2. I'm a new fan of hers. This album made me want to listen to all of her music. Thumbs up from me

Should Hip Hop Have Labels? Conscious VS Trap

Conscious VS Trap
After Vince Staple tweet about not wanting to be placed in the conscious rap label last Wednesday evening, Hip Hop heads voiced their opinion on the sub labels of hip hop.

I am highly offended by the term conscious rap don't associate me with that. — Vince Staples (@vincestaples) August 12, 2015
This brings me to talk about the topic. Should hip hop have sub genres? Hip Hop was founded on the fun of mixing together music with rhymes and developed into storytelling, word play, political power etc... The culture of hip hop will always include the elements of  DJs to turn the tables, a microphone to spit the bars, graffiti to paint the images, and the infinite break dancing. Introduced in the late 70's were hip hop pioneer groups like, the Sugar Hill Gang, who were the first hip hop group to enter into mainstream media with the classic anthem "Rappers Delight," which expressed pure fun, funkadelic beats, rhymes, and basic flow. During the 80's when…

Steph Curry Goat or Not?

Is Stephen Curry a GOAT?As we begin to close out the NBA playoffs entering into the finals and championship game, the topic of who's "The best player in the league" has become the center of the conversation. On May 10th, the NBA league announced that Steph Curry was unanimously voted as the most valuable player (MVP) in the NBA. Once this news was released it instantly went viral all over sports media, most people agreeing with the decision. Since then fans has made critical claims some ridiculous and others were reasonable. I've heard people refer to Stephen Curry as "the goat" (greatest of all time) comparing him to Michael Jordan even. First and foremost Stephen Curry is what I call a true point guard. He reads each position, pass, and shot thoroughly before just taking them. He has great game IQ without any question and knows when to shoot or pass. Yes he possibly could play the shooting guard position because he's a creative shooter who averages be…
