Fans of both SZA and Doja Cat have been hounding the former about the whereabouts of the two Grammy-winning artists’ highly anticipated comeback collaboration.
SZA, who won her first Grammy earlier this year for her duet with Doja Cat on “Kiss Me More,” promised her fans that the two would collaborate again on her next album.
Doja Cat, who has been on hiatus, is also hard at work on her next album, which is due out next year.
SZA promised her fans earlier this year at the Mad Cool Festival:
“Want to know a secret? You all want to know who’s on this song? It’ll be like our secret, right?
The hint is we already have a song together. Her name starts with a ‘D’ and it rhymes with Soulja.”
Everyone knows it was Doja Cat, which is why everyone was shocked and perplexed when they saw the official tracklist for SZA’s new album “SOS,” and Doja Cat’s remix was missing.
Fans have expressed their dissatisfaction on social media, with Doja Cat fans stating that they will withdraw their support for the album due to the now-broken promise.
Last month, “Shirt” was released, along with an action-packed music video starring LaKeith Stanfield. However, there is no Doja Cat remix to be found.
The song “Bloodstain” was also not included in the actual 23-song tracklist. SZA has finally cleared the air, just as the uproar on Twitter reached a fever pitch. The subject was brought up during an interview with “Nessa on Air” on Hot97.
“She had surgery. She had to have that emergency vocal cords surgery and she wasn’t ready at the time that we needed to get that song done. There was like a crossfire between her management and my management, they had told us that it was done, but it wasn’t actually done. There was a lot of confusion. But I don’t know I hope for that and I’m still a major fan of her, and her artistry, and I think she’s so incredible, I would love to get her on the deluxe, and I’d love to get a few people on the deluxe hopefully will see, you know when verses come in, they come in chile.”
If the track did not appear on the original, you can be sure that it will appear on the Deluxe Version.
Aside from Doja Cat, another song with Don Toliver was revealed to be cut from the album’s final cut.
