Buy Still Over It from Amazon
The entertainment news realm revolves around gossip and spilling tea with reckless abandon. The juicy morsels that keep The Shade Room's lights on dominate news cycles on social media sites, morphing rap and R&B stars into reality TV show characters. The lines blur between private and public life, letting fans online believe they understand the intricacies of these figures' lives, sitting back with popcorn ready as a new episode unfolds like a daytime soap opera.
Still Over It plays to the Atlanta singer's strengths, striking a similar balance between club-ready anthems and delicate acoustic arrangements to that of its predecessor. Littered with a variety of appearances from A-listers like Cardi B , SZA and Ciara over the course of its twenty tracks, it still finds Walker front and centre, with her characteristically introspective lyrics feeling more gripping than ever. Unsurprisingly, self-worth is a recurring theme.
Summer Walker's music has the emotional intensity of a Real Housewives reunion. Her songs are as shady as they are chaotic--and irresistibly entertaining. Yet beneath the drama are layers of vulnerability. Walker's 2019 debut Over It positioned the 25-year-old singer as a star in the moody landscape of contemporary trap R&B.
As the twenty-track production begins, it's clear to the imagination that this is going to be something special. As the romantic R&B vibes kick in, this writer immediately falls in love with 'No Love' featuring SZA. The soft, yet addictive vocals on this beautifully put together track allows for both artists to swim in harmony with each other. It's simply magnificent.
