Interesting facts and trivia about Broken Clocks. By Songfactsยฎ.

Here, SZA sings about working hard in order to accumulate a sum of money. Got a shift at 10 AM Gotta dip at 10 PM Gotta get that cash Won't get past the lunch break SZA told Billboard magazine back in 2013 that before getting into music, she got through a variety of jobs. "After I graduated I just started doing random jobs," she said. "I figured I was going to be a scientist and travel the world or something like that. But in the meantime I just needed money. I got fired from every job I ever had, though."

The song is based around a vocal sample of River Tiber's 2016 single "West." SZA is in good company with choosing to sample the Toronto singer-songwriter. Back in 2015, River Tiber was plucked out of obscurity when his song "No Talk" was sampled by Drake on his If You're Reading This It's Too Late track "No Tellin'."

SZA sang this at the Grammy Awards in 2018. She was nominated for Best New Artist, but lost to Alessia Cara.
