SZA expressed her frustration over recent music leaks on Twitter, Saturday night. In a post written fully in caps, she called the latest leaker a “f*cking thief” and threatened to take legal action.
“LEAKING MY MUSIC IS STEALING,” SZA began. “THIS IS MY JOB. THIS IS MY LIFE AND MY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. YOU ARE A F*CKING THIEF AND I PROMISE TO PUT MAXIMUM ENERGY INTO HOLDING EVERYONE ACCOUNTABLE TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW. I AM TIRED.”

SZA’s comments on music leaks come as she continues to prepare for the release of her next project, Lana. While it originally started as a deluxe version of SOS, she told Variety that it’s now beginning to feel like a full album. “It’s definitely turning into its own album… and I guess I could drop a new album randomly, because no one’s actually expecting that from me right now,” she told the outlet. “But I can’t tell if now’s the time to be consistent, or carefree. On the one hand it’s like, ‘What would Beyonce do?,’ but I am also deeply inspired by people who do whatever the fuck they want, like Frank Ocean and Andre 3000. Some of my favorite songs were the ones that I dropped on SoundCloud [early in her career], because it was so stress free.” Check out her full response to the leaks below.
