One user went so far as to humorously claim that with SZA announcing a new project, “2022 finally makes sense.”
sza is finally releasing the album, 2022 finally makes sense.

However, with SZA’s notorious reputation for stretching the truth, others expressed doubts as to whether we’ll actually be getting a new album in 2022.
I’ll believe Sza drop music when I see her on tide, the girl lies for no reason

SZA mentioned recording “hundreds of songs” in the process of curating their second album
At this point we should add that SZA talked about their upcoming album back in October afterwards TMZ met her at LAX.
When asked how many total songs she recorded while working on the project, SZA revealed that she’s definitely been busy over the past 5 years.
“Total? A hundred maybe? I don’t even know actually,” she revealed. “Five years of material.”
Shoutout to all the SZA Stans who have been patiently waiting for this new project.
