SZA is tired of people leaking her music.


This weekend, a number of tracks believed to part of SZA's upcoming "SOS" reissue "Lana" have surfaced online.


It's not clear who leaked the tracks, but, unsurprisingly, the "Kill Bill" singer is less than happy.


She took to X, the platform previously known as Twitter, on Saturday to express her anger.


"LEAKING MY MUSIC IS STEALING," she wrote. "THIS IS MY JOB . THIS IS MY LIFE AND MY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY."


SZA went on to threaten legal action against the leakers.


"YOU ARE A FUCKING THIEF AND I PROMISE TO PUT MAXIMUM ENERGY INTO HOLDING EVERYONE ACCOUNTABLE TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW," she added. "I AM TIRED."


Punch, the president of SZA's label, Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), also chimed in.


"When music leaks it often lead to delays and/or canceling whole projects," he wrote on X, quoting SZA's post.



This isn't the first time SZA has hit out her music being leaked.


While recording her second studio album "SOS," SZA recorded over 100 songs. "Lana" is expected to comprise mostly of these previously unreleased songs.


A number of the unreleased tracks, including "Joni," SZA's tribute to Joni Mitchell, have been leaked in recent years.


In an interview with Variety in November, SZA said that leaks "ruin" her songs.


"It's not mine anymore; it's actually yours," she said. "It's something unfinished that you decided was ready to be shared. And it's like, 'Fuck you. Now I'm not releasing it.'"
