It’s not even halfway through the week and we’re already weeping. Why? Because there is a video circulating on the internet of SZA’s dad singing along to his baby girl’s song “Broken Clocks” and it is peak emotional roller coaster.
In the video, SZA’s pops is the ultimate proud dad as he sings along to the lyrics in his Ctrl baseball cap. Towards the end, he gets choked up while sending a message to his baby girl. “Every time I hear this song sweetie, I’m in tears. I love this song by you!” Cue the waterworks. 😢
SZA has often spoken about her dad and how their relationship has blossomed over the years. In a 2014 interview with Mass Appeal, she explains, “[My relationship with my dad] has taken a lot of different forms. Now we just like smoke together, and chill. We’re just past a lot of shit. I’m too old for it, and he’s too old. We don’t have any energy to beef with each other so we just hang out.”
Poppa SZA isn’t the only one who is obsessed with “Broken Clocks.” The song landed on former POTUS Barack Obama, 2017 playlist released via Facebook. SZA, of course, reacted like any of us would.
That’s how you know you’ve got a certified hit on your hands.
Cyn Santana is one of SZA’s biggest fans, but did you know she’s also a wig connoisseur? Catch her “wigging out” in the video below.
