About The Weekend

"The Weekend" is a song recorded by American singer SZA for her debut studio album, Ctrl (2017). Written by SZA and its producer ThankGod4Cody, the song samples "Set the Mood (Prelude)" from the 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds, written by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, and Danja, who also received writing credits for "The Weekend". A contemporary R&B and neo soul record, "The Weekend" uses a synth-line, hi-hats, drums, a high-pitched vocal sample and clocking key thumps. Its theme is polyamory; SZA sings about sharing a lover with other women from the perspective of one who only see her partner at weekends. The aforementioned subject caused debate across the social media, calling attention from music critics, some of whom questioned SZA's attitude for singing about sharing her sexual partner so comfortably, calling it a "side-chick anthem". Other reviewers considered it an expression of positive female sexuality. The song was included in several lists of best songs of 2017 and received a Grammy nomination at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Prior to its official release, the song debuted on some Billboard charts; this unexpected popularity prompted RCA Records to release it on September 26, 2017, as the album's second radio single. The song reached number 29 on Billboard Hot 100, becoming SZA's first and highest chart position with a solo song. It also topped the Hot R&B Songs chart and was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on March 1, 2018.

You say you got a girl
Yeah, how you want me?
How you want me when you got a girl?
The feelin' is reckless
Of knowin' it's selfish
And knowin' I'm desperate
Gettin' all in your love
Fallin' all over love, like
Do it 'til it hurts less
Hangin' out the back, all up in your lap
Like is you comin' home? Is you out with her?
I don't care long as you're here by 10:30, no later than
Drop them drawers, give me what I want

My man is my man, is your man
Heard it's her man too
My man is my man, is your man
Heard that's her man
Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
I just keep him satisfied through the weekend
You like 9 to 5, I'm the weekend
Make him lose his mind every weekend
You take Wednesday, Thursday
Then just send him my way
Think I got it covered for the weekend

I gotta say I'm in the mood for a little bit more of that
I mean I'm saying what kind of deal, just two days?
I need me at least 'bout four of them, more of them
More you on me, on us
Just tell me you want me, yeah
Monday and I'll be at your door
Ready to take her place
Ready to give you
What you've been missin' on weekdays
What you've been waitin' for
10:30, no later than
Drop them drawers, I know what you want

My man is my man, is your man
Heard it's her man too
My man is my man, is your man
Heard that's her man
Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
I just keep him satisfied through the weekend
You like 9 to 5, I'm the weekend
Make him lose his mind every weekend
You take Wednesday, Thursday (don't worry 'bout none)
Then just send him my way (don't worry 'bout none)
Think I got it covered for the weekend
