Watch: SZA Releases Solange-Directed Video for “The Weekend”


The weekend is finally here!

After teasing fans over a month ago, SZA has unveiled the much-anticipated music video for her hit single “The Weekend.”

Directed by Solange Knowles, the dance-heavy visual opens with a poem that reads: “one opted out. an imbalance of power, shifted the whole tide. it waved.” Eventually, the poem can be found at the end of the clip, as well.

In between the poetic lines, a large majority of the video finds SZA dancing. First, she does so hidden in an architectural wonder as the wind blows her hair back. Then, the interpretive dancing continues through various scenes, including a parking lot backdrop and an art studio.

“The Weekend” became a breakaway hit for the songstress, first going platinum and then receiving a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance.
