Summer Walker – Over it

  • Release date: 4 October 2019
  • Label: LVRN, Interscope records

At her best, Summer Walker’s stories play out like a telenovela. On “Me,” a moody track in the middle of her debut album, Over It, she’s heartbroken and unsure how to react, so she runs through her options: not care, or be petty and send him a single-word text. Instead, she checks her purse, then the trunk of her car, and pulls out a gun. “I would never shoot you, baby/Maybe just wave it around,” she sings in a sweet but defeated tone. It’s relatable melodrama for some, maybe a cautionary tale for others.

She occasionally veers into duller territory, such as the cleverly composed but drowsy “Fun Girl,” but the intensity is maintained by a revolving cast of R&B’s most repulsive crooners. On “Like It,” Atlanta’s 6LACK is all about sex, but Walker is enamoured. In “Just Might,” her duet with PARTYNEXTDOOR (“I just might be a ho”), she holds herself responsible for her failed relationships, with the OVO signee portraying the unfaithful partner with all the justifications. When she swears next to Jhené Aiko, “I’ll go to hell or jail about you boy,” the level of pettiness reaches a peak in “I’ll Kill You,” akin to the epilogue of a twisted vengeance film.

Like many of her current R&B peers, Walker is working through her obsession with ’90s R&B. “Body” flips 702’s“Get It Together ,” and “Come Thru,” both samples and features Usher .Otherwise, her writing is irresistibly fresh. Whether she has on love goggles or is shaking up her boyfriend by pointing a gun at him—out of love, of course—it’s part of what makes Summer Walker feel like a real person, making the real misguided decisions that happen when you’re over it, or telling yourself that you are.
