TDE's Punch Says He Knows 'Exactly When' SZA's Album Is Dropping

Punch clarified that TDE and SZA look to finally be on the same page.

“Is [SZA] happy? I’d say so. Last album, triple platinum,” Punch replied. “What happens is people put a story into their own narrative and create a situation that’s not really there. I’m not going to say there’s never been contention.

“There’s always contention, especially when you’re de
