(Radio.com) SZA released her debut album CTRL last month and recently sat down with Glamour to talk about the record and her appreciation of Kendrick Lamar and addressed the controversy over some of his lyrics.

Lamar collaborated with her on her "Doves in the Wind" track. SZA remarked that the rapper is "amazing" and" always helping [her] level up to be better and to want more." During the interview, she defended the DAMN. rapper about certain lyrics in his "Humble" track. The controversial lyrics in question, are when Lamar raps, "I'm so ....sick and tired of the Photoshop/Show me something natural like afro on Richard Pryor/Show me something natural like *** with some stretch marks."
