Sza has had a meteoric rise since her debut solo album Ctrl dropped on May 24 last year. Being able to celebrate its anniversary must have been hard for the singer who seems to no longer have a singing voice.
On Tuesday, in now-deleted tweets captured by Vulture, the “Supermodel” songstress shared that after a “test,” she realized some terrible news – her voice is permanently damaged. And as you could imagine, that could cause anyone who relies on their voice to go into hibernation for a bit.
“I jus wanna be left alone my priorities are f-cked up. They been f-cked up. I need space goodbye ,” one of the tweets read.
This shouldn’t come as a complete shock to her fans considering that her label, Top Dawg Entertainment, released a statement a week ago that the “All The Stars” chart-topper would be taking a break from its current Championship Tour. Apparently, she was trying to heal from swollen vocal chords, and without rest, that would have been impossible to do.
Sza posted the statement on social media with a caption that apologized for not being able to honor her tour dates because her voice “just won’t f-cking work.”
“For anyone who hasn’t seen this . I’ve been touring for 11 months. This didn’t happen overnight . Ive been troubleshooting for a while now and Usually steroids and pushing through help. They don’t this time . I’m not sick my voice just won’t fucking work😔 🤷🏾♀️. If I don’t pause now I’ll be forced to pause permanently . I’m genuinely sorry for every face,voice ,and energy field I won’t be touching ! I’m literally taking as many steroids as I can to speed this up!! Its a waiting game and super weird to be blamed for stuff outta my control but I get it ! again .. I’m sorry..I’ll be right back . Pray for me or don’t . Preciate u either way ❤-S”
We’re not sure whether the “test” Sza mentioned in her now-deleted tweet was a recent doctor’s exam that didn’t yield the results she wanted, but one can speculate.
Top Dawg Entertainment has yet to release an official statement about her current condition, but on Twitter, the label seems to not be giving up on their oh-so-talented artist…and we definitely won’t either.
