SZA’s debut album, Ctrl, was released in June 2017. The album was reworked with seven unreleased tracks as Ctrl (Deluxe) for its five-year anniversary earlier this year. The highly teased new single and music video is finally out. The song is titled ‘Shirt’ and the naming of the song is quite interesting. It is reported that “Shirt” first surfaced in 2020 and grew popular on TikTok, where it soundtracked a popular dance challenge and took on the name ‘Shirt.’ She even once wrote that she heard that people named the TikTok song ‘Shirt’ and she was fine with it.
The ‘Shirt’ music video was directed by Dave Meyers and co-stars Lakeith Stanfield who had also featured in SZA’s previous release ‘I Hate U.’ The music video is described as a SZA and Stanfield take on Bonnie and Clyde in the new Quentin Tarantino-esque visual, which features a room full of pregnant women dressed as nuns, a dead clown, and more.
