SZA sang “Love Galore” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is off her debut studio album Ctrl. Earlier, SZA performed “The Weekend” on “SNL.” See the video below of her impressing with “Love Galore” on “Saturday Night Live.”

Sza first performed “Love Galore” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in the beginning of the year. She sang it again on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” with Travis Scott, who also stars in the song’s music video. In the video, which has been viewed nearly 38 million times, SZA seduces Scott and ties him up in bed, only to have another woman bludgeon him to death. “Love Galore” reached number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number three on its Rhythmic chart and six on its Adult R&B Songs chart.

As Gossip Cop mentioned earlier, the marks the very first time SZA has been on “SNL.” And to say she was excited would be an understatement. Hours before the show, SZA shared an Instagram story from her dressing room at “Saturday Night Live.”

While she videotaped all the action going on inside, she sang, “Today is the day,” as well as showed a bunch of candy bars that were created by the program to commemorate her appearance of the show. The wrappers for the chocolate bars featured SZA’s name, a photo of her, and the date of her performance. But as delicious as they looked, the singer wrote alongside her video, “Got my own damn candy bruh. I’m neverrrr opening theeeese. Tankies so much SNL.”

SZA is on fire these days. Her album Ctrl hit number number three on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as scored the number one spot on its Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It also garnered her, as Gossip Cop noted, five Grammy Award nominations, the most of any other female artist this year.

During a recent interview with MTV about her all her nominations, SZA said it was “bizarre” to have been recognized once, let alone five times by the Grammys. And of being the most nominated woman, the singer expressed that it was “strange,” adding, “I don’t underhand how it end up being me because I definitely didn’t envision me.”

Following her gig on “SNL,” SZA will be back onstage in Brooklyn on Sunday night, as part of her Ctrl tour. Her five-month tour ends next month in Hawaii. Check out the video below of SZA performing “Love Galore” on “Saturday Night Live.”
