‘The Weekend’ singer treated fans to a rendition of the American band’s 1998 hit at Miami’s Ill Point Music Festival yesterday (February 17).
“That song just makes me happy as fuck and I really wish it was ’98 right now,” SZA told the audience.
‘Kiss Me’, which reached Number One in the US singles chart that year, has been covered by numerous acts including Avril Lavigne and New Found Glory, among others.
One Twitter user responded to a clip of the cover with: “CRYINGGGGGG”, while another claimed that SZA revealed that “she’s halfway done” with her new album.
Elsewhere, SZA herself has been the subject of cover music in recent weeks. Frank Ocean teased a cover of the singer’s track ‘The Weekend’ by posting a snippet of his recorded version of the song playing out of a car stereo.
The original version of the track appears on SZA’s debut album ‘CTRL’, which was released in 2017.
