Last night (May 29), SZA took to Twitter to announce that she may have done permanent damage to her vocal cords according to a report by Vulture.
Despite sharing with fans last week that she would not be continuing on the Championship Tour alongside Kendrick Lamar and other labelmates due to swollen vocal cords, the Grammy-nominated singer performed at the New York City stop. After leaving the stage at Madison Square Garden, the songstress posted a series of now-deleted tweets about a permanent injury to her vocal cords.
“My voice is permanently injured. Great !!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYUUYH!!!!!!!!’n”, “she wrote. SZA then went on to reference a test that “settles” the issue. It was unclear whether it was another medical test or if she was unpleased with her performance for the night. Ultimately, she expressed her disappointment in the situation. The tweets were deleted shortly after that.
SZA and Kendrick Lamar were co-headlining the tour which featured the Top Dawg Entertainment label’s entire roster of artists. The next tour stop will be tonight at Jones Beach Theater; there’s no official word on if the singer is still set to appear.
