The start of 2021 has been, for lack of a better word – chaotic. Between Washington's Capitol riots, the Armie Hammer scandal none of us saw coming and the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus pandemic, it's understandable if your mind is feeling a little scattered. Sometimes, all you need to help clear your thoughts is a good, old cry. For artist and dreamboat SZA, it seems the feeling is mutual, revealing her latest project in the form of the 'GOODLINE hotline'.
Taking to Instagram, SZA confirmed she's prepared to share our collective pain, debuting a hotline where fans can call and cry about things. Yes truly, a safe place where you can let it all out. In the video, directed by the artist herself and shot by Blair Caldwell, the singer shared the number for her hotline – 888-808-0CRY – with the tagline “a place for us.” If the news of the GOODLINE hotline wasn't enough already, the nostalgic 90s visuals that accompany it will be enough to send any of us over the edge.

"Uhh, random I made a hotline to cry n laugh n talk w chall," SZA captioned the video for her new project; which the world has already proven they are deeply thankful for. In the first five hours of the hotline going live, SZA received over 60,000 calls from people who were ready to vent. According to a tweet the artist posted, the high demands for her service resulted in the line crashing multiple times.
Okay sooo we’re over 60’000 + calls in and increasing / crashing lol ! 😨🥺🙏🏾 making some changes like extending the meditation audio + a few other things!! I’ll see u back on Friday when its time to talk to MEEEEEE!! ☺️I love you sleep well 💜

So, if playing 'Good Days' on repeat doesn't quite hit the spot, the best form of therapy lies in chatting to the master of sad bangers herself. SZA will be back on the GOODLINE hotline tomorrow for all our woes and needs.
