SZA Debut “The Weekend” Video Directed By Solange and Fans Have Mixed Reaction

SZA drops the long awaited video for “The Weekend” directed by Solange Knowles.

The cut was released last night and fans on Twitter has mixed reaction. The single is one of the most popular R&B tracks this year and helped propelled SZA to become a breakthrough artist with her new album Ctrl getting rave reviews and even earning her some Grammy nominations. The success of the single raised the bar high so some fans are a bit disappointed with the video which starts out with a poem which can also be found at the end of the cut.

The rest of the clip mostly finds a scantily clad SZA dancing at the top of a building while the wind blows her hair. The dancing continues to an empty parking lot and then into an art studio. Some fans says they expected to see more of a short film like video for the popular single dubbed a side chick anthem. “I expected SZA to show a fine ni**a playing with her emotions & entertaining side hoes in the weekend music video. The song painted a picture. Instead she gave us parking lot looks and building teas. I guess sis,” one fan tweeted.

Other fans thinks the the artistic video showcase a deeper meaning behind the single. ”
