SZA takes offense to ‘SOS’ ranking on Apple Music’s Top 100 Albums of All Time

SZA is not happy with where her blockbuster album SOS has been ranked on Apple Music’s Top 100 Albums of All Time.

The project, which was only released in December 2022 but has been an enormous success, came in at number 72 on the list.

After catching wind of the list, the TDE singer appeared to take issue with her placement by writing in an Instagram comment: “Lmao 72nd is so disrespectful.”

The full list will not be made available until May 22, but the streaming platform has been rolling it out in batches of 10 since the start of this week.

Within the already announced selections, there are a slew of fan-favorite rap albums including Travis Scott‘s Astroworld (No. 98), Tyler, The Creator’s Flower Boy (No. 92), Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP (No. 80), Missy Elliott‘s Supa Dupa Fly (No. 75) and N.W.A‘s Straight Outta Compton (No. 70).

De La Soul‘s 3 Feet High and Rising came in at number 65 while Baduizm by Erykhah Badu placed at number 64 and 2Pac‘s classic double album All Eyez on Me landed at number 62.

Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Usher, Solange and Mary J. Blige also have albums within the top 100.

Fat Joe recently heaped high praise one of the albums on the list: 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’.

Speaking on an episode of BET’s Diggin’ in the Crates last week, Joey Crack crowned it “one of the greatest albums of all time” despite his past issues with the G-Unit general.

“It’s crazy ’cause I had beef with him and I wouldn’t allow myself to hear it, wouldn’t let DJs play it. But I knew that it was G-Unit,” he said.

“Recently J. Cole came out at his concert and said it was the greatest album of all time. Nas came out and said, ‘Yo this changed the game.’ And it’s a fact.”

He continued: “His flows, his melodies, his beats, the energy Hip Hop music had never felt. That energy that he was coming with, it was like, yo, this is that — you got that dangerous thing to it. He teamed up with Mr. Professional, Dr. Dre and Eminem.

“See, 50 Cent woulda still been amazing but he’d have came with those New York beats that was really really good, but once again, Dr. Dre makes everything iPic. He makes everything crystal clear. He just gives you that professionalism like you on a podium or something.”
