Earlier this year, SZA took to social media to reveal a “secret” Soundcloud account with three songs — “Joni,” “Nightbird,” and “I Hate You,” the last of which was produced by ThankGod4Cody, Sir Dylan, Rob Bisel, and Carter Lang and (as the title suggests) sees the singer in an emotional rollercoaster over a love interest who mistreated her:

“I be so sick of you niggas, y’all contradicting, I be so bored with myself, can you come and fuck me? I feel so ordinary, sad when you around me, treat me like corduroy, wear me out, arguments, you air me out, tripping ’bout your whereabouts, I can’t keep no conflict with you, boy, can we just rub it out? I don’t want no static with you, you know you my plug, and I can’t shake this habit, no, I’ve been up, baby, heavy reminiscin’, heavy on the missin’ you…”

Today (Dec. 3), SZA has decided to release “I Hate You” as an official single on all streaming platforms. The song now follows a slew of loose singles delivered by the Top Dawg-signed talent, including the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Hit Different” and her Christmas drop “Good Days.” All-in-all, the loose cuts definitely have fans hoping that a sophomore studio album is arriving sooner than later.

It’s been four years since SZA released her debut LP Ctrl, a 14-track body of work that featured collaborations alongside Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, James Fauntleroy, and Isaiah Rashad. The project was both a massive critical and commercial success, earning widespread acclaim and scoring SZA a top three position on the Billboard 200 thanks to 60,000 first-week album equivalent units sold. Ctrl has also since crossed the double Platinum mark, making SZA a true R&B frontrunner within the current generation.

Press play on SZA‘s “I Hate You.”
