Rank It: “CTRL” - SZA

Story posted January 9, 2023 in CommRadio, Arts & Entertainment by Natalie Simone

14. “Anything”

Background noises sound like Squidward’s tentacle. It’s a no.

13. “Doves in the Wind”

Gross language used throughout the whole song and it is completely unnecessary.

12. “Prom”

Glorified CVS music, but probably great to play while cleaning your room.

11. “Wazy (Interlude)”

Interludes have a way of always being just okay. There isn’t anything truly special about this song, but it is still beautiful.

10. “Go Gina”

This sounds like I’m listening to SZA’s inner monologue.

9. “Pretty Little Birds”

This could be the chosen song to cry to on this album.

8. “Broken Clocks”

SZA made the best medium paced song and one to sing your heart out to.

7. “Normal Girl”

I am glad SZA is not a “Normal Girl,” this one is calming and underrated.

6. “The Weekend”

From the first beat it is obvious that this song is special; there are many elements and they work perfectly together.

5. “Love Galore”

SZA created some great vibes here. Easily a song to get lost in the beat and lyrics.

4. “20 Something”

Best way to end the album. This is a powerful, unique and feel-good song.

3. “Drew Barrymore”

SZA was in her feels while writing this and everyone totally loves it.

2. “Garden (Say It Like Dat)”

Absolutely one of the best songs ever made. Period.

1. “Supermodel”

This song belongs in every playlist made, there are no flaws.
