SZA backtracks: “I’m blessed to say my voice is not permanently damaged”

19 June 2018
SZA wants you to know that both her and her voice are doing okay. This follows a vocal injury that led to the swelling of her vocal cords a month ago.
 
At the time, SZA took to Twitter, in since deleted tweets, to claim her voice was permanently damaged. TDE chief, Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith suspended her from the label roster saying to Complex at the time, "I have to take SZA off for a few days on the tour. Her vocal cords are swollen and she has to rest her voice to prevent any permanent damage."
 
It turns out it was all a false alarm and SZA now wants you to know that everything is okay. "Thank u to the incredible team of Doctors and vocal technicians that have taken time to see me over the last few weeks in every city," she tweeted in part. "I'm blessed to say my voice is not permanently damaged and i've been working daily to get back. Slowly but surely."
Back to singing those heartbreaking R&B ballads then.
