SZA is moving on with a new talent agency.

According to Billboard, SZA has signed with WME talent agency for representation in all areas. The “Love Galore” singer will join other artists under the direction of WME like 2 Chainz, 6LACK, Big Sean, Rihanna and more.

SZA is set to drop her sophomore album this year. The exact date is still unknown, but fans can still look forward to getting some new music from her.

“This next album is even more of me being less afraid,” she said during an interview with Kerwin Frost, adding that Justin Timberlake, BROCKHAMPTON, Post Malone and Jack Antonoff may appear on the record.

“Before I was like, ‘What the fuck am I doing in the studio with Justin Timberlake right now? This is crazy,’” she reflected on recording music with Timberlake. “But when I heard his music and we started singing together... It’s like, ‘Oh, we speak the same language. The same frequency.’ I understood where he was going before he could finish a run.”

In an interview with Rolling Stone, SZA talked about getting to know herself before putting out new music so that she wouldn't put out the same material.

“I can always make music. It’s who I am,” she says. “So if I started making fucking sculptures and decide to take up entomology, I’m still probably going to drop something. I am also getting to know myself. Because if I keep trying to regurgitate the same girl, y’all are going to hate that shit. And I don’t want that either.”

SZA is well aware of the pressure she’s under. “I’ve dropped nothing but features,” she says. “People don’t know who the fuck I am, right? They think I’m on some stupid superstar shiny shit. I know people are tired of seeing that. They want to see me. I owe people that. So I’m going to do that.”
