SZA later featured on Doja Cat's 'Kiss Me More' which became the longest-running all-female collaboration and earned her a Grammy for  Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

In December 2022, SZA dropped her second album, 'SOS' which gained praise around the world and entered the UK's Top 10 albums chart.
