SZA is bringing the heat in her new sultry music video for “The Weekend”, directed by her good friend Solange Knowles.
For the song’s new visuals, the 28-year-old R&B singer, who released her debut studio album “Ctrl” this past June, is seen dancing in latex lingerie in a variety of abandoned, art-deco locations, including a marble balcony and a parking garage.
Teasing her video collaboration with Knowles back in August, SZA told USA Today how much she admired Beyonce’s younger sister. “I love her,” she said. “I think the universe is just bringing us closer to each other. That’s my homegirl.”
Earlier this week, SZA released a catchy remix of “The Weekend” with Calvin Harris, titled, “The Funk Wave Remix”, based on the title of the Scottish record producer’s latest album, “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.”
The release of her new video leads up to the 2018 Grammys, where SZA holds five nominations, including Best R&B Song, Best New Artist, Best Rap/Sung Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best R&B Performance.
