Sza releases acoustic version of ‘Snooze’ with Justin Bieber

The original video featured an all-star cast, including Bieber

Sparked by social media frenzy after making a cameo in Sza’s official music video for “Snooze,” Justin Bieber now joins her for a new version of her No. 1 hit song. Produced by Carter Lang, “Snooze (Acoustic)” combines their signature voices into a dreamy duet.

RIAA-certified 2x platinum with nearly 800 million streams worldwide, “Snooze” continues to sit in the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart for eight weeks, R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for 12 weeks and R&B Streaming Songs chart for two weeks. The lyrics to “Snooze” were written solely by Sza, and the original version of the track was produced/written by the legendary Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, The Rascals (Khris Riddick-Tynes, Leon Thomas) and BLK. “Snooze” marks Sza’s fourth No. 1 hit at both rhythm and urban mainstream radio, preceded by “Kill Bill,” “Shirt,” and “I Hate U.”

Last week, Sza celebrated the success of her RIAA-certified 3x platinum album SOS at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Nearly two thousand fans, partners, and celebrities were enraptured by her performance of fan favorites and unreleased music slated for the deluxe version SOS, currently titled Lana.
