SZA Scores Her First R&B No. 1 With “The Weekend”

After releasing her debut album Ctrl to critical success, SZA rounds off her 2017 claiming the number one spot on the Hot R&B charts with her heartfelt track, “The Weekend.”

After rising from last week’s No. 3 position, “The Weekend” managed to surpass Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke” for the top spot. According to Billboard, “The Weekend” marks the first No. 1 on the Hot R&B Songs chart by a woman since Rihanna’s “Needed Me” back in October 2016.

Quick to celebrate the announcement, the singer took to Instagram, sharing a warm and candid message with fans. She explained, “I remember pretending to be vegan cause that’s all I could afford lol (chips avocado n salad mix). I 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 (I was SICK lol).” Check out the full post below.
