If you’re thirsting for a sappy cry (it’s Wednesday; sometimes you have feelings), have we got a treat for you.

SZA brought tears to her papa’s eyes in a recent video posted on Twitter. In the video, Daddy SZA is proudly rocking a cap from SZA’s Ctrl Tour and listening to her song “Broken Clocks.”


Nodding his head and singing along to the lyrics (you know you tried to hit that “Ooooh!” too), SZA’s father gets emotional and has to collect himself.

“Every time I hear this song, sweetie, I’m in tears,” he says, addressing his daughter.

“I love this song. I love your whole album, but this is one of my favorite songs. Every time I hear this song, I’m in tears,” he continues before wiping a tear from his eye.


D’awwww! Dad!

SZA had nothing but love back, responding back via Twitter:

“Really love u daddy,” she wrote. “Thank u for loving ME! Forever my favorite warrior.”


Is there anything more wonderful than a proud dad who isn’t afraid to get a bit weepy over his child?
