SZA shares some words of wisdom from her mother

"Some fire words from mommy I wanted to share for whoever needs em," the 'CTRL' star says

SZA has shared a motivational text message from her mother with fans on Twitter. Check out the post below.

The 27-year-old – who released her debut album ‘Ctrl’ in June last year – is due to release an extended version of the LP in the near-future. She recently told a fan that she has “6 bonus tracks so far”.

As she works on new material, the ‘Supermodel’ artist has shared some of her mother’s words of wisdom – which advise her on managing priorities and dealing with feelings of stress.


Hoping to reach out to fans facing similar issues, SZA captioned the post: “Some fire words from mommy I wanted [to] share for whoever needs em”.

“Remember, you can even eat an elephant one bite at a time,” the message begins. “To help feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, jot down all the stuff that’s making you crazy, then write beside it what must be done NOW, what can be done LATER and what would be nice to do if you could but is OPTIONAL.”

Mommy SZA goes on to warn against procrastinating and says to focus on herself.

In other SZA news, it’s been announced recently that she’ll join Kendrick Lamar on his tour of North America in May.

Last month, the New Jersey artist revealed that she was “mad as hell” after failing to win a single award at this year’s Grammys.


She was up for five awards at this year’s ceremony, including Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album. However, SZA was overlooked in every category she was nominated in.

“You feel like you’re really falling short and you fucking failed [your fans],” she said of the snub, before adding that she hadn’t made her debut album ‘CTRL’ for the sole purpose of winning a Grammy: “This is something much bigger than me and a fucking trophy.”
