SZA believes life is better on “Saturn” in her new single that dropped Thursday (Feb. 22) via Top Dawg Entertainment and RCA Records.

The whimsical track arrives almost three weeks after she first debuted “Saturn” in a Mastercard commercial that aired during the Grammys, where SZA was prancing around an enchanted forest while supporting Mastercard’s Priceless Planet Coalition that promotes forest restoration. “We’re a force of nature when we come together. That’s why I’m supporting Mastercard on their mission to restore forests around the globe. Join me,” SZA says at the end of the ad.


The commercial aired during the 66th annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 4, when SZA — the night’s most nominated artist with nine nods — took home three awards: best R&B song (“Snooze”), best progressive R&B album (SOS) and best pop duo/group performance (“Ghost in the Machine” with Phoebe Bridgers).

“Saturn” — which was written by SZA, Carter Lang, Rob Bisel, Solomonophonic and Monsune and produced by the latter four — finds the superstar disappointed with the world around her and wonders if life would be better if she could start over on Saturn. It was released as a five-track bundle that includes the original track as well as the live, sped-up, a cappella and instrumental versions.

The song will reportedly appear on her forthcoming SOS deluxe album titled LANA. SOS debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 following its December 2022 release and spent 10 nonconsecutive weeks there — the most of any R&B/hip-hop album by a woman since Mariah Carey’s self-titled debut spent 11 weeks at the top in 1991.
