SZA & Beyoncé's Old Demos Were Uploaded Then Deleted From Streaming Platforms
Everything we know about the debacle.
Dubbed Comethru, the project was credited under the moniker “Sister Solana” and featured nine songs including “Bed” one of her past tracks from a previous mixtape. The title track was a response to Drake and PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s “Come and See Me.” Another single “Loved Ones” heard Kendrick Lamar, who was credited as “King Kenny.” Interestingly enough this track was also a leaked song from a Lamar leak not too long ago. Hackers were actually responsible for the influx old demos of seemingly unheard music by Beyoncé and SZA.
The Beyoncé leak consisted of two projects; one was titled Have Your Way and consisted of a number of pre-LEMONADE tracks like “Crazy Feelings” and “Angel” under the pseudonym “Queen Carter.” Bey’s stans immediately posted via social media that these songs were “pre-2010 old, unreleased or bonus tracks.”
After the “Sister Solana” leak, SZA released a response in which she shared referred to the album as a “big cap.” On her Instagram Stories, she wrote: “These are random scratches from 2015. Def now new new! But… creative? And Scary? Lol HEARD U THO.. I SWEAR the new is coming!” TDE’s Punch took to Twitter to share that the album was in fact filled with old songs which were “stolen and leaked.”
The “Sister Solana” and “Queen Carter” projects have since been deleted from streaming platforms.

There is no new SZA album out. Old songs were stolen and leaked. We are currently fixing the issue. Please feel free to continue enjoying Ctrl until the next album is ready.
