SUMMER WALKER’S OVER IT IS THE BIGGEST DEBUT ALBUM FROM A FEMALE R&B ARTIST IN OVER 10 YEARS

Love Renaissance (LVRN)/Interscope Records is proud to announce that singer-songwriter Summer Walker’s first album, Over It, has debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #7 on the U.K. chart.  Over It sold 134,000 album equivalents, making it the largest debut for an R&B female artist in three years since Beyonce’s Lemonade. This historic feat makes Walker’s new album not only the biggest debut album of any R&B female artist in over 10 years but is also the biggest streaming week for an album by a female R&B artist EVER. 

Executive produced by highly acclaimed producer, London on da Track, the album features a who’s who of hip-hop and R&B and has garnered a bevy of positive praise in the days since its release. “Walker is now primed for the big stage,” wrote TIME magazine. “Summer Walker has made a name for herself,” said VIBEmagazine, while Forbes confirmed the artist “firmly establishes her place in the genre.”

Earlier this week, the Atlanta songbird unleashed a music video for the extended version of the album’s first official single “Playing Games,” featuring Bryson Tiller. Directed by Christine Yuan, the moody clip is quickly approaching 3 million views already on YouTube. The song also recently cracked the Billboard Hot 100.

Over It features guest appearances from Drake (“Girls Need Love” Remix), Jhene Aiko (“I’ll Kill You”), A Boogie wit da Hoodie (“Stretch You Out”), 6LACK (“Like It”) and PartyNextDoor (“Just Might”). R&B veteran and multiple Grammy Award-winner, Usher, on “Come Thru,” which is currently #9 on the Apple Music charts.

This month, Walker is set to embark on The First and Last Tour, which will kick off overseas in London for three sold out shows and then returns stateside for 35 dates across North America, including stops in such major markets as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, and Atlanta.
