SZA is adding “actress” to her resume. Over the weekend, the Top Dawg Entertainment songstress celebrated the new title after revealing she recently got cast in a role she auditioned for.

“Can’t believe I got the part I wanted. She’s an actress,” SZA wrote on her Instagram Story. She also posted a picture of a cake that someone gifted her for the successful audition and her chart-topping single, “I Hate U.”

So far, the 32-year-old hasn’t revealed any further information about her new acting gig or whether it’s for a television or film project. On Sunday (Dec. 19), SZA’s photographer and videographer celebrated her achievement by posting some photos that were possibly taken on-set.

“Everything [SZA] touch turn into gold. My girl is now adding ‘actress’ to her repertoire, congratulations babe,” they wrote.

SZA’s “I Hate U,” which was first shared via an anonymous Soundcloud account this August, has continued to dominate the charts after debuting at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 this month. Streaming-wise, the song remained at Spotify’s No. 1 spot in the U.S. for five days and its first-week streams on Apple Music are the most an R&B song by a female artist has ever received, Billboard reports.

“Honestly this started out as an exercise. I jus wanted somewhere to dump my thoughts w out pressure,” SZA previously wrote on Instagram about releasing the song on Soundcloud. “Y’all made it a thing and I’m not mad lmao.”

“One thing ab CHALLLL YALL GON MAKE IT A SINGLE EVEN IF IT AINT!” she wrote in another post. “I LOVE YOU! THANK YOU!”
