SZA's hit song had 'good days' in PH

02/06/2021 06:32:12 PM

SZA's song Good Days had done some good days in the country... literally and figuratively.

For the R&B singer, this song has become the biggest hit in the Philippines and elsewhere in the world. During the latter part of January, Good Days peaked at #2  at Spotify Philippines Viral 50 and a top 15 placement at Spotify Philippines Top 50.  Not only that, but the soulful single also became a staple name in the playlist of several mainstream stations. Specifically, it ranked No. 5 on 99.5 Play FM, a major pop station; No. 7 on Wave 89.1 FM, a rhythmic and urban-leaning station; and has gained prominent spots on Magic 89.9 (No. 23) and more. 

The second track following 2020’s “Hit Different,” is hailed as one of her two new headline releases since 2017’s groundbreaking multi-platinum debut, CTRL—an album that garnered significant critical attention for “laying bare the kind of vulnerability most often whispered in private” and for its “believable insights into one woman's quest for erotic self-determination.” 

Prior to reaching success on the Philippine shores, the buzzy-empowered anthem skyrocketed at No. 1 on US Spotify Streaming Chart after just a week from its official release. Since then, it peaked within the top 10 of other major music markets including the US, UK, Australia, Ireland, Belgium, and New Zealand.

Written and produced by SZA, Jacob Collier, Carlos Muñoz, Carter Lang, and Christopher Ruelas and mixed by Shawn Everett, the laid-back tune was released as a surprise drop on Christmas eve last year. Publishing this song was made p[ossible through Top Dawg, RCA, and Sony Music.

Good Days didn't just achieve commercial success, but also critical as well. Hip-hop magazine, The Source praised the new song for “mastering bliss and serenity all at once.” The publication adds, “In particular, the rawness of her vocals creates an ethereal energy that dives deeper into SZA`s unmatched creativity as a songwriter.” British music bible, NME called her comeback single “worth the wait,” citing how her voice has grown more sophisticated and carefree through the years.
