American singer-songwriter Summer Marjani Walker has released her second studio album, Still Over It.
The album is a follow-up to Walker’s debut album, Over It (2019). On the two-year anniversary of her debut album, Walker announced the release of Still Over It through a video teaser.
The album includes 20 tracks, featuring collaborations with Cardi B, City Girls member JT, SZA, Ari Lennox, Lil Durk, Pharrell Williams, Omarion, and Ciara. The lead single “Ex for a Reason” was released on October 15, 2021.
Summer Walker’s debut studio album, Over It was released on October 4, 2019 and received universal acclaim from critics.
The album debuted and peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart and is certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album also spawned the Billboard Hot 100 top 20 single “Playing Games”.
In 2019, Walker made history when her debut album earned the biggest streaming debut-week ever for a female R&B artist. She was also the recipient for Best New Artist at the 2019 Soul Train Music Awards.
Following the release of Over It, Walker released her EP, Life on Earth on July 20, 2020, and surprised fans after announcing her pregnancy with then-boyfriend and executive producer of Over It, London on da Track.
After giving birth to her daughter in March 2021, the singer hinted at new music on her social media platforms. In June, Walker shared photos in the studio with artists Omarion, SZA, and producer Pharrell Williams.
In early October, Walker intended on appearing at the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards’ red carpet to announce her second album. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions (which Walker had been vocal about two months earlier), she was declined entry. Therefore, she shared the album announcement on social media, revealing the details outside on a projector.
On October 17, Walker announced a challenge in select cities New York City, Chicago, and Atlanta, where fans can listen to the album early by attempting to break a glass case with the album’s hard drive inside. The challenge has been featured heavily on TikTok.
