SZA releases visual for “Supermodel,” her latest single from her critically acclaimed debut project, CTRL.
The video, directed by Nabil, has magical elements to it but also has a dark theme as well. In the clip, SZA strutting through the forest like she’s on a fashion runway. The R&B singer is leaving her sadness behind after her boyfriend breaks up with her.
Donning a sheer black blouse, “CTRL” panties and matching stilettos, SZA is stomping through the forest as groups of children join her in support. At the end of the video, the TDE artist gives her ex-lover his comeuppance shooting imaginary guns as the children cheer her on.
Since the release of CTRL, SZA has been hailed as a rising star of R&B. In speaking with The Guardian, the 25-year-old singer said that she might not have released the album if it was up to her. Thankfully, the bosses at TDE stole her hard drive.
“They just took my hard drive from me,” she said. “I just kept f—ing everything up. I just kept moving s— around. I was choosing from 150, 200 songs, so I’m just like, who knows what’s good any more?”
“Any longer and I probably wouldn’t [have put it out],” she added. “I’m also driving myself f—ing crazy, so I don’t know. Give me another month and it would have been something completely different.”
SZA is just a few weeks away from embarking on her 44-date Ctrl Tour, which starts on Aug. 16 in Richmond, Va.
