The project features Don Toliver, Phoebe Bridgers, Travis Scott, and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

Before SZA broke this historical record, Adele did with her 2015 album, 25. Whitney Houston also made a mark with Whitney, which stayed on the Billboard 200 for seven weeks.
More recently, SZA was named Billboard’s Woman Of The Year. During her acceptance speech, she said, “Right now, I just have extreme gratitude because I swear to God, I never thought I’d be No. 1 for even a week, let alone seven.”
The R&B singer intends on touring throughout the spring. The SOS Tour, which has Omar Apollo as an opener, will be in Washington, D.C., Boston, New York City, Atlanta, and more through the end of March. Overall, SZA will make 19 stops across the United States and Canada.
