SZA blames Punch and her engineer for the songs not making it to the album
SZA's new album SOS didn't include some of her highly-anticipated songs like “Boy From South Detroit,” “Joni,” “PSA,” and “Potting Season.” In a recent interview that emerged online, the singer blames TDE president Punch and her engineer, Rob, for the records being left out on the album.
“A song called ‘Boy from South Detroit' that Twitter wanted really bad, Rob nor Punch really cared about that song,” she explained. “They weren't excited about it and Rob was just like, ‘I don't really think this is the song.' And then Punch was indifferent about the song, but I was like, ‘No, I really believe in this!'”
All though SZA didn't say when SOS deluxe will drop, she revealed it will include “Boy From South Detroit.”
“Or ‘Joni' being a song that I really wanted on the album, but Punch was like, ‘This song has been out for years! And no one wants to hear songs that were out for years. Everyone wants to hear new songs from you,'” she added. “I'm like, ‘Okay.' Of course that's a song they're asking for on the internet.
“Or whether it's ‘PSA' or ‘Potting Season,' and he's like, ‘Oh, that sounds too much like ‘Blind' so you can't have both of those on the album because they sound too much alike and people will get bored of hearing that.' People are asking, ‘Where the fuck is ‘PSA' on the album?'”
