SZA got a major co-sign from Barack Obama earlier this week, and she had quite the reaction to it when finding out.
Even though he’s not in the White House anymore, Barack Obama decided to keep his annual tradition alive a couple days ago when he shared his year-end playlist, recapping his favorite songs of 2017.
This year’s artists included everyone from Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Camila Cabello, Mavis Staples, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean Chris Stapleton, U2, Chance the Rapper, French Montana, and Portgual the Man, among many others. But one of the biggest & coolest surprises was TDE songstress SZA, who’s song “Broken Clocks” also made the list.
So gassed up as any artist should be to make Baracks list, let alone a rather new artist like SZA, the TDE’s first lady decided to share her reaction to finding out this news on Instagram, and it’s priceless.
On Friday morning, SZA shared a screenshot of a text message she received in which informs her of making Barack’s 2017 list. SZA replied hilariously in all caps, “YOUR A LIAR. BECAUSE I LOVE HIM AND WANT HIM TO BE KING FOREVER AND EVER PLS HOW.”
SZA’s reaction comes just hours after she linked up with fellow TDE member Kendrick Lamar on the new song “All The Stars,” which will see life on the upcoming Black Panther soundtrack.
