In a series of since deleted tweets, SZA announced that her vocals cords had been permanently damaged.
She had previously been pulled from the TDE Championship Tour, where she was scheduled to perform alongside label mates including Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q.
Posting TDE’s official announcement of her break from the tour to Instagram, SZA said the harm to her voice was the result of overwork and non-stop touring.
For anyone who hasn’t seen this . I’ve been touring for 11 months. This didn’t happen overnight . Ive been troubleshooting for a while now and Usually steroids and pushing through help. They don’t this time . I’m not sick my voice just won’t fucking work😔 🤷🏾♀️. If I don’t pause now I’ll be forced to pause permanently . I’m genuinely sorry for every face,voice ,and energy field I won’t be touching ! I’m literally taking as many steroids as I can to speed this up!! Its a waiting game and super weird to be blamed for stuff outta my control but I get it ! again .. I’m sorry..I’ll be right back . Pray for me or don’t . Preciate u either way ❤️-S
Before she deleted the tweets, SZA wrote that she wanted to be left alone and that her “priorities are fucked up.”
