SZA just gave the world what they've been waiting on, but she probably wasn't expecting this feedback she's getting. Watch the video and see folks' shady reactions inside.....
The world was expecting a while story line - side chicks, main chicks, main bae, side baes, multiple houses and anything else that would tell the story the song itself seemingly tells.
But nah. Solange Knowles hopped behind the camera and directed the video, which seems to pick up where her "Cranes In The Sky Part 2" left off.
SZA serves up classical dance moves (she's a trained dancer, in case you didn't know) to her CTRL album offering, all set in a parking garage and outside of a skyscraper.
Not everyone's feeling it. In fact, it's trending on Twitter with people straight up pissed off about it in mixed reviews.p>
SZA.....sis.....that is really what you gave us for your The Weekend music video.....dancing in a fucking parking garage? No side chicks? No fine ass leading man? Just throwing your arms around on top of a building? pic.twitter.com/6K3XYeJO7D

You can tell Solange produced The Weekend video bruh. I AM DISAPOINTED! I wanted some scenes I wanted to see her sneaking around with some random dude. I wanted some chair dances. What is going on. I waited since JUNE 9TH 2017 for a Cranes In the Sky remix video ????? BLOWN pic.twitter.com/BssJoPAPvp

The Weekend video wasn’t bad it just didn’t make sense for SZA. It was very Solange. And that’s fine.

SZA can’t do a good video for The Weekend cause she confused herself too much. is it 3 side chicks? No side chicks? Is the man the side chick? Who tf knows. So her dancing in slow motion whilst being filmed from 80ft away on an iPhone 4 is what we get.

SZA... Solange... there better be a part two to that video because I need a visual backstory to The Weekend. Not you twirling in parking garages and shit. Visuals were on point but let’s really get into it!!! pic.twitter.com/aqebcSX8Ov
