SZA has shared a new video for her song “Good Days.” The Solana-directed clip finds SZA in a psychedelic forest surrounded by giant mushrooms. Check it out below. 
“Good Days” is the b-side to “Hit Different,” [ft. Ty Dolla $ign] which SZA released in September, directing the video herself. She had previously joined Justin Timberlake on the Trolls World Tour soundtrack with “The Other Side.” The followup to her 2017 debut CTRL has not yet been announced, but she told Rolling Stone she has been working on new music with Timbaland, Sia, and Pharrell, and hinted at collaborations with Lizzo, Megan Thee Stallion, Kehlani, and Jhené Aiko on Instagram Live.
See where CTRL fell on “The 200 Best Albums of the 2010s.”

SZA – “Good Days” (Video)

After going more than three years without a solo release, SZA returned at the end of 2020 with “Hit Different” alongside Ty Dolla $ign. The video for that song featured an untitled song at the time, that fans desperately requested. That song would eventually “Good Days” and today we got the video for it.The nearly six-minute visual finds the TDE singer pole-dancing in the middle of a library before heading out to a makeshift mushroom field to show off some more dance skills. Towards the end, it’s revealed that the bulk of the video was just the result of a shroom trip.
Oh, and to conclude the visual, she teased another new song, one that fans have called “Shirt,” despite SZA saying she would title it something else.
Check out the graceful “Good Days” video below.
