Summer Walker is an American singer and songwriter known for her contemporary R&B stylings, acoustic sounds and lyrics with a nostalgic feel. Originating from Atlanta, GA, she is best known for her song "Girls Need Love," which is the lead single from her debut album Last Day of Summer and was released October 2018. The album peaked at number 6 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. Summer has credited artists such as Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and Jimi Hendrix as inspirational figures in her music, and her stylings have been compared to the likes of modern R&B sensations 6lack and Ella Mai.
An Introvert Using Music to Speak to the World
Following the divorce of her parents, Summer withdrew somewhat socially, and she found that music allowed her to express herself in ways that talking could not. Whenever she had an emotion that she felt she could not express verbally, she would turn to music and allow her emotions to come through her lyrics and music, which first notes are often strummed out on her guitar. She first stepped on to the public R&B scene with the 2018 release of her self-produced song "Session 32," which some have coined as "an acoustic love letter." Following the release of "Session 32," Summer collaborated with A. Archer on the ballads "Deep" and "Girls Need Love," with the latter becoming her best-known song to date and the lead single on her debut studio album Last Day of Summer. The album brought Summer new notoriety with Apple Music naming her its 2019 Up Next Artist. From there, Summer's popularity soared, and she was ranked #8 amongst R&B artists globally according to Apple Music. The success of Last Day of Summer led to Summer joining 6lack as an opening act for his From East Atlanta with Love Tour and the release of her first EP in February 2019 titled Clear, which included a remix to "Girls Need Love" featuring Drake.
