Atlanta’s rising R&B songbird, Summer Walker, released her long-awaited debut album, Over It, this past Friday. The project includes star-studded features from artists such as 6LACK, Bryson Tiller, Jhené Aiko, and even PARTYNEXTDOOR who emerged from the deepest pits of the recording studio to join Walker on “Just Might.”
The album was promoted throughout the week with phone booths planted around the country. Fans got the chance to listen to songs from the collection and leave a message afterward. Upon the release, social media was abuzz with emotion, receiving praise from tweets to Instagram story posts.
Many fans were pleased with “Come Thru,” which not only samples and interpolates the 90’s hit “U Make Me Wanna” by Usher, but features the man himself! “I’ll Kill You” featuring Jhené Aiko was another fan-favorite. Although, many expected the threat to be towards a guy and not the girls that would chase after him.
Walker shared that this album is “based on a true story,” and there’s no mistaking that these tracks come from the heart. These are fresh and relatable songs every girl needs to hear right now; whether you’re in a steady relationship or getting over a situationship. With Summer’s smooth crooning over a bass-heavy beat or the plucking of guitar strings, there’s a song for everyone to enjoy!
It’s safe to say that “Over It” has fans deep in their feelings (myself included!) There are songs to cry to, sing along to, and songs to do both! Be sure to catch her in concert this semester as well to see all the action. Happy sapping!
