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.

Personally, I didn’t listen to the whole list but 70% I did and my favorites were  Pressure, Culture, I Decided,  More Life, 2Chainz, Gotti, Remy & Fat Joe and even catch a snippet of Vic’s album, which wasn’t bad.

Now, the R&B albums this year were so LIT! I was more in tune with these albums than anything else. I actually did listen to all of them, minus Keyshia Cole’s 11:11 Reset

(I haven’t had a chance to listen to her, but I’ve always loved her and Imma give her her credit)

For me, it’s been a great year to listen to music and I’m excited to see what’s coming next year. I heard Cardi B should be coming with an album, Nicki Minaj, I wouldn’t be surprised if Drake came out with something.

Check out my next post on the artists that you may have slept on this year who may start shining bright next year!

If I missed anyone, call me out on it but more than likely if I didn’t list them then I don’t listen to their music orrrr I haven’t listened to it yet.

 

Danii Gold out!
