Video: SZA’s dad moved to tears listening to ‘Broken Clocks’
Only a loving father could get this emotional
There’s nothing quite like making a parent weep with pride, and this week R&B it-girl SZA got to share that special moment with the world.
Monday, one of the singer’s fans posted a video of her father, Abdul Mubarak-Rowe, singing along to Broken Clocks from his car, while rocking a white “CTRL The Tour” baseball cap.
“Every time I hear this song sweetie, I’m in tears,” he gushed to the camera. “I love this song by you — I love your whole album but this is one of my favorite songs.”
*insert ALL the feels*

The Love Galore singer is apparently extremely close to her family as evidenced by the nods of appreciation the singer gives to both her mother and grandmother throughout the 14-tracks of her latest album CTRL. In January, she even invited both matriarchs to be her dates at the Grammys.
