SZA had some special guests in tow for the New York stop on her SOS tour last night (March 4), as singer/songwriter Phoebe Bridgers and rapper Cardi B both made surprise appearances during her sold-out show at Madison Square Garden.
Bridgers contributed her parts to “Ghost in the Machine,” marking the live debut of the song from SZA’s December 2022 album SOS. Moments later, Cardi B came on stage to launch into “I Do,” her 2018 Invasion of Privacy track featuring SZA. Cardi also stuck around to deliver some lines from “Tomorrow 2,” the rapper’s collaboration with GloRilla, according to Setlist.fm.
SZA kicked off her first arena tour late last month and returns to MSG again tonight for another sold-out gig. The SOS trek ends March 23 in Los Angeles.
Aside from her own touring commitments, Bridgers has been guesting with quite a few music stars lately: she appeared with Billie Eilish during the latter’s L.A. hometown show in December and, a month prior, joined Lorde in Brazil. She sings on two tracks from the National’s upcoming album, First Two Pages of Frankenstein, and on March 31 will release the self-titled debut LP with friends Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus as boygenius.
