The years-long wait for a new SZA album is officially over. The TDE songstress finally pulled the trigger and released her 23-song opus SOS. The set, which features singles "Shirt," "Good Days," "I Hate U" and others, once again finds the singer-songwriter leading us through her stream of consciousness as she processes heartache, insecurities, triumphs, love and her own bad b***h ways. With the arrival of the collection, SZA has also gifted us with the video for the track "Nobody Gets Me."
"Nobody Gets Me" is a melding of R&B balladry with a grungy, '90s pop sound (think Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn"). The track finds SZA dealing with the possibility of a breakup while begging for her man to stay because he seems to be the only who understands her.
The black-and-white video for the track embraces its '90s feel as we see the singer working through her broken heart on the rooftops of New York City. The camera catches many angles of the singer, both from up high and up-and-close and personal. In each shot, she performs the song with the signature emotional honesty that has endeared her to fans, eventually ending the video with a shot featuring a single tear rolling down her cheek.
Of course, there are many more vulnerable moments to be found on SOS, with SZA showcasing how her songwriting has evolved while still sticking to the formula that made CTRL the multi-platinum hit that it still is to this day. Check out the video for "Nobody Gets Me" when you press play and then head below to stream the entire album in full.
