SZA To Celebrate First Anniversary of ‘SOS’ With Deluxe Version, ‘LANA’

SZA, well-known for her hit album SOS, is celebrating the first anniversary of her successful release. In a surprising announcement, the talented R&B artist took to social media to reveal a highly-anticipated surprise. 

Happy Anniversary

SZA’s album SOS took the music industry by storm, and on Sunday, December 11, she marked its first anniversary with a heartfelt message on social media. The “Snooze,” singer wrote:

“Happy one-year Anniversary to an album that is actively changing my life more than a tweet can ever say. I love all of you .. we came so fucking far. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING ME HERE #CAMPFOREVER #SOSFOREVER.” 

Climbing The Charts

A month after SOS’s release, the album spent six weeks in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Charts

Undoubtedly, SZA made history with her second highly-anticipated album, becoming the first woman with an R&B album to hold No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for four consecutive weeks in 30 years, since Janet Jackson’s 1993 hit album, Janet.

The “Kill Bill,” singer is no stranger to being at No. 1 on the charts, as she recently achieved this feat alongside rapper Drake. The two collaborated on the song “Slime You Out,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart when it was released on September 15, 2023.


Adding to the excitement, the “Consideration” collaborator released three new photos on her social media platforms, capturing her in different settings. 

The enigmatic captions accompanying the photos simply read, “LANA.” While SZA has not provided a release date for the deluxe album, fans couldn’t contain their excitement and began speculating about what “LANA” could entail. 

Fans were quick to analyze the details in the photos, noticing that in one of them, SZA is pictured wearing a blue jersey with the number 15, sparking speculation.

One user named @szalishhh wrote, “do we think LANA is the deluxe or is it actually going to be a whole nother project? i went back and read SZA’s Variety interview and im starting to think it might be a whole new album.. Especially with this type of rollout for a DELUXE? It’s giving new project!” Fans are also speculating that the album may be released on December 15, as she was posed with the number 15 on her jersey as stated and shown before.
