SZA’s CTRL, HipHopDX’s 2017 R&B Album of the Year, continues to break the new ground well after its release.

The TDE Queen recently took to Instagram to thank her label and fans for pushing the incredible piece of music to a whopping amount of streams — 2.3 billion to be exact.

“Today I found out we 2.3 billion streams deep and a buncha other cool stuff,” the R&B starlet wrote. “I love my family. I love you all for pressing play at any time. Thank you for this journey @dangerookipawaa @iamstillpunch @rcarecords Thank you God for this existence.”

The celebratory post all but makes the pre-release hoopla of SZA quitting due to the album’s delay a forgotten memory.

Released in June 2017, the album would go on to be certified Platinum in the midst of spawning music videos for over 50 percent of the project and earn a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
