Let’s Talk About Summer Walker’s New Album “Over It”

If you’ve been living under a rock, Summer Walker released her first album Over It on October 4 and it’s gained a lot of attention and even charted. The album is the “biggest debut album from a female R&B artist in over 10 years.” That’s big! Not sure what the exact numbers are but from the looks of it, it seemed highly anticipated from its recognition. 

Side bar: Summer KILLED her feature on Rick Ross album Port of Miami in the the song “Summer Reign.”

As of today, her album is #2 on the RnB and Hiphop charts. Majority of her songs have charted as well.

Speaking of which, let’s talk about her songs and features. She opens up the album with the self-titled album name “Over It” and in the song she says she needs a guy who can handle her. Men often say that women are out of control and she’s over the fact that women have to be tamed. She wants a guy who can handle her, flaws and all.

Summer gets Bryson Tiller on her “Playing Games” extended version. The song is self-explanatory, dudes be playing games and Summer speaks on how us women just want them to pick up the phone for us, quit stunting on us and even show us off. She also was a regular version without Bryson but the extended version is better.

In the song “Come Thru” she sampled Usher “You Make Me Wanna” and even gets him featured on the song. Summer wants her boo thang to come thru so she can put it on him. They killed this song!! Hopefully she’ll drop it as a single, even though it’s already charted.

“Fun Girl” is one honest ass song. She talks about how this guy looks at her as just a friend and even told her that she wasn’t built right. In so many words, he told her she didn’t have a body and he thought she was onlygood for just her body, being a “fun girl”, a fuck buddy. It’s sad when you hear things like that and imagine Summer channeling that hurt into a song. I’m sure dude is probably slapping himself right now lol.

“Tonight” is probably one of the sexiest songs on the album. She talks about being busy and how she can’t wait to get back home to bae and have some “quality time” with him. Speaking of that quality time, Summer got 6lack on her song “Like That” as they talk to their partners about what they like in the bedroom; another great feature.

“Just Might Be” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR has got to be one the funniest/realistic songs on her album as she talks about how it’s hard for her to find love and she questions if she may be a hoe. EVERY woman has thought there was something wrong with them because they couldn’t find love. When you finally find love, you deal with a guy who wants so much out of you  and you deliver, but he doesn’t hold up his end. Summer talks about that in “Stretch You Out” featuring A Boogie With The Hoodie. She said she’s not going to stress you out but instead, see what she can get from you, “stretch you out.” Once fed up, Summer realizes that she doesn’t have the patience or tears to deal with a guy’s nonsense anymore. She realizes that she’s over the dude in “Off Of You.”

One of my favorite songs on the album is “I’ll Kill You” featuring Jhene Aiko. Both ladies talk about how they’ve found love and how they’ve waited so long for it and they will kill any woman who tries to interfere with that relationship.

It’s safe to say that Summer killed her debut album. Her new boyfriend London On Da Track produced majority of the album and I’m not complaining! This album was made out of love or lust and I’m for it.

Chris Brown Concert Lit!

Soo I went to see Chris Brown Sunday July 29 (I know I’m late making this post).
Of course he was GREAT! He started out singing “Heartbreak on a Full Moon”, then went into performing “Juicy Booty”, “Questions”, “High End”, “Yellow Tape” and my FAVORITE song on the album “Hope You Do” which is a melody sample from Donnell Jones “Where I Wanna Be” . I could’ve left the concert after he performed that because I was THAT impressed at that point! BTW if you haven’t already, make sure you check out the review I did on Heartbreak on a Full Moon Album
82C449EC-AE0F-455E-8D74-AAF339611839
After he performed his songs off the Heartbreak on a Full Moon album, he took us back to 06 and sang “Yooo”, his second single off the first album, then “Poppin”. To put the icy on the cake, he performed “Take You Down”, which we all know is the SHIT! Mind you, while he was performing all these songs, he dancing…his ass off. Not only can this man, sing, rap, dance, but he can act and produce. Call him what you want but don’t forget to mention that this man is talented.

Sidebar: I missed 6lack’s performance but I did catch H.E.R. and did good! She’s more of a mellow, chill performer. She didn’t dance much at all, but while she singed, she played her guitar. She performed my ALL TIME favorite sung by her, Best Part. Overall, I liked her performance.
Another sidebar: I went to see C Beezy for the first time in concert back in 06, with Neyo (hence, the feature photo). Crazy thing is, I completely forgot because I went to so many concerts when I was younger. But needless to say…I’ve been a fan!!
Have y’all seen Chris Brown in concert? If so, where at and how did you like it?
