SZA’s performance at the 2024 Grammy Awards is one of the highlights of the show you won’t want to miss.
The 34-year-old R&B star tops the list of nominees this year having bagged nine nominations.
She is billed to rock the stage at the February 4, award ceremony, the Grammys announced on Monday.
The “All the Stars” singer joins the already stacked lineup of performers, including Billie Eilish, Billy Joel, Dua Lipa, Luke Combs, Burna Boy, Olivia Rodrigo and U2.
Also slated to perform at the ceremony is SZA’s “Love Galore” collaborator Travis Scott, as well as legendary singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell.
This marks a significant milestone for Joni Mitchell, who is performing at the Grammys stage for the first time.
SZA has racked up nine Grammy nominations this year, making her the most-nominated artist at the ceremony.
Her sophomore album SOS alone is up for both progressive R&B album and album of the year.
SOS hit “Kill Bill” is nominated for song of the year, best R&B performance and record of the year, while tracks “Snooze,” “Love Language” and “Low” also earned nods for best R&B song, best traditional R&B performance and best melodic rap performance, respectively.
The hitmaker was also nominated for best pop duo/group performance with Phoebe Bridgers following their haunting SOS duet “Ghost in the Machine.”
Her nominations this year boost her total career Grammy nominations to 24, with one win in 2022 for best pop duo/group performance, which she and Doja Cat clinched for track “Kiss Me More.”
No more goals
Last month, during an interview, she reflected on her whirlwind year. According to her, she has already fulfilled most of her career and creative goals.
In her words, “I don’t have any more goals, and that sounds terrible, but career-wise … I keep saying that — nobody believes me — but it’s just like, you don’t understand. These are my goals.”
“I have already gone platinum. I didn’t think I would ever go platinum. I sold a bunch of records. I got to meet Stevie Wonder, I got to meet Beyonce and work with her, I got to meet Frank Ocean. My mom came and my dad came to all these cool countries to see me perform. I’ve had sold out shows, I got to headline a festival,” she said.
SZA continued, “Like, what else do I want? I’m nominated for Grammys. I’ve won a Grammy. I’m done, for me, personally.”
“Anything past this is so much more than I wanted, thought of, dreamed of,” she added.
The 66th annual Grammy Awards will go down on February 4. It will be held live at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
