The song came off SZA's 2022 album 'SOS,' which is also up for Album of the Year.

The track was on SZA's 2022 LP SOS, which is also nominated for Album of the Year. The R&B singer was nominated for nine awards this year, more than any other artist. She's also slated to perform later on tonight.

Bridgers was nominated for seven awards. She also received an Album of the Year nod for her work on The Record with the critically-acclaimed supergroup Boygenius. The LP includes the track "Not Strong Enough," which was nominated for Best Rock Performance.

SZA said many of the tracks on SOS were inspired by alternative rock acts like Green Day, Blink-182 and Paramore.

Following her acclaimed collaboration with Bridgers, the singer hopes to record with Paramore's singer Hayley Williams.

"Soon, soon! It’s in the works," she said in a rapid fire Q&A session posted to Apple Music's TikTok account last week.

SZA was born in St. Louis but grew up in Maplewood, New Jersey, a suburb near Newark and New York City.
