Her debut album, Ctrl, cracks 5 million equivalent album sales. The 2017 record is already a modern day classic. It never left the Billboard 200 chart since its release and seems poised to stay much longer.

SOS is just getting started, but already claims 2 million sales on its own. SZA is also exploding abroad, with Kill Bill currently standing at #1 on Spotify’s global chart.

On top of her solo albums, the artist went into various side projects. Her orphan folder includes participations on many soundtracks, including Black Panther‘s All the Stars, while her features are led by Doja Cat‘s Kiss Me More and Maroon 5‘s What Lovers Do.

All in all, her career moved 13.3 million equivalent album sales so far. Will she able to hit 20 million during the year 2023?

Can you update SZA? since she just released an album that is smashing right now

ojd

this article is literally less than two weeks old

Denysanatol

Maybe it’s wright to do SZA now , but you may think about Sia , Camilla Cabello and Nicky Minaj . Many people wright about it there .

Denysanatol

About they level , I think :
Sia – 25-30 Mln EAS .
Nicky Minaj – 40-45 Mln EAS .
Camilla Cabello – 15-20 Mln EAS .

The difference is that this is a light article and I doubt that it took them long. Nicki Minaj for reference would take them weeks and the digital sales would probably be sort of inaccurate since hers are hard to estimate.
