SZA made her debut appearance on ‘SNL’ last night where she performed her hit singles “The Weekend” and “Love Galore,” both from her critically-acclaimed debut album, ‘Ctrl.’
For her first performance, the 5-time Grammy-nominated R&B artist delivered a stripped-down rendition of “The Weekend,” which was nominated for Best R&B Performance. Backed by a choir and wind section, the songstress showed offer her eclectic stage presence while rocking a emerald green gown, making for a memorable outing. “Heard that’s her man, Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, I just keep him satisfied through the weekend,” she sings.
Following a guest host James Franco, SZA later returned with a glowing performance of “Love Galore,” once again, backed by the choir, but this time she rocks yellow sweater dress.
SZA will remain in New York Monday for a sold-out headlining performance at Irving Plaza in Manhattan. Then she returns Jan. 28 for the Grammy Awards, where the blooming artist is nominated in five categories: Best New Artist, R&B Performance, R&B Song, Rap/Sung Performance and Urban Contemporary Album.
