Atlanta’s own singing, songwriting, and producing triple threat, Summer Walker, just released her first project. The project is titled “Last Day of Summer” and consists of twelve tracks.
Over the past year, Walker has captured the hearts of fans. She has a voice that is cultivating and each of her tracks pulls out emotions that anyone can relate to. She dives into the typical relationship problems between lovers. In her first single, ‘CPR’ Walker addresses not being able to breathe without her significant other. She goes on to lay out all how much she relies on and appreciates her lover. Deeper into the song, she points out that she needs her lover “here at home.” Walker goes on to debut her most popular track, ‘Girls Need Love.’ The song embodies the hypocrisy between men and women, specifically when trying to convey the desire for sex. It is more acceptable for men to ask for sex and sometimes is even expected. However, whenever a female wants to express her desires, she has to fear being labeled as a h*e. Although the songs deliver to separate messages, they’re still relatable and that’s what fans love.
Now the question is – does Summer Walker keep the same energy in her new project? I’m happy to report she does. On “Last Days of Summer,” Walker addresses the same issues from her first two singles while giving fans more to talk about. For example, in the song ‘Baby,’ vents about her “heart working overtime” and her “mind going crazy” over her significant other. She goes on to say that if her lover leaves she “just might lose it.” This is the same theme fans see in the song ‘CPR.’ Following this is the song ‘I’m There.’ Here fans see Walker express her desires for a mystery lover. Anytime he calls her she makes it required for herself to be there. Many women have a man that they can’t get enough of just like Walker.
Ultimately, Summer Walker gives a little bit of the old and the new with her new project. It’s important to note that she is still able to keep her relatability with her audience. From discussing sexual tendencies or teenage love affairs, Walker is on the right track. Now we all need to wait and see what is next for the upcoming star. You can listen to her album on Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud.
