The 60th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 7:30 Eastern Time. The Grammys for the year 2018 has a heavy male dominated line-up. However, Urban Contemporary R&B Artist, Sza, has been nominated for five Grammys, which means, she’s in the lead for the most nominations as a female artist.

 

Sza released her debut album, titled as “Ctrl,” earlier this year during the summer. Her stage name SZA is short for “Savior Zig-Zag Allah.”

 

She has been nominated for “Best New Artist, Best R&B Performance (The Weekend), Best R&B song (SuperModel), Best Rap Song (Love Galore featuring Travis Scott), and Best Urban Contemporary Album(CTRL).” A total of five nominations, beating out Taylor Swift and Cardi B (both artists are up for only two 2018 nominations).

 

Sza openly expressed her gratitude on Instagram:

 

I️ remember pretending to be vegan cause that’s all I️ could afford lol(chips avocado n salad mix ) I️ remember sleeping on everyone’s couch cause I missed the train AGAIN (thank yall for having me lol ).Sold my beloved 500$ grillz for 50 bucks at the gold shop for train fair( I️ was SICK lol ).

I️ BEGGED Punch for writers on this project cus I️ thought no one would ever like me the way I️ was. He said “U don’t need em”. I️ remember crying cus I️ didn’t have any hits or a quantifiable “sound”.. I️ remember feeling like damn maybe I suck. maybe I️ should try something else ? Maybe I’m jus wasting space ..Life’s weird . I️ Didn’t have any friends growing up. never gave my parents an opportunity to say “wow my kids killing it” didn’t graduate or do any fly shit before my nana died . been fired from every job I️ ever had ..I remember sobbing on the phone w punch pleading for the album not to come out cause I️ couldn’t take the embarrassment . Just wanted another week. Another day ?..he ignored me n said I’d be fine…This entire thing puts my wildest dreams to shame. I️ dunno what to say cause I️ dunno how to accept its even happening to me lol I’ve never won anything in my life even until this week (THANK YOU SOULTRAIN AWARDS!!) it all just feels strange somehow BUT IM SO OVERWHELMINGLY GRATEFUL FOR THIS STRANGENESS!! .
