American R&B singer SZA recently had issues with her vocal chords, being forced to withdraw from the TDE Championship Tour back in May. Luckily, it looks like everything is fine now, and the 27-year-old “All the Stars” singer has confirmed that her voice isn’t permanently damaged.

“Thank u to the incredible team of Doctors and vocal technicians that have taken time to see me over the last few weeks in every city,” wrote SZA on Twitter. “I’m blessed to say my voice is not permanently damaged and i’ve been working daily to get back. Slowly but surely.”

She already resumed with the live shows, performing at Firefly Music Festival in Dover. Check out her statement below.

SZA’s problems began back in May when her label Top Dawg Entertainment announced that the singer will withdraw from the label’s United States tour due to swollen vocal chords. TDE’s founder Top Dawg issued a statement following the announcement, and said that she “needs to rest her voice to prevent any permanent damage.”

SZA also confirmed at the time that there is a possibility of her voice being permanently damaged, writing: “I’m not sick my voice just won’t f***ing work. If I don’t pause now I’ll be forced to pause permanently.”

After her debut release Ctrl received critical acclaim, SZA is currently working on a follow-up album. She recently collaborated with Maroon 5 on the song “What Lovers Do,” and was featured on Cardi B’s debut album Invasion of Privacy.
