Summer Walker has just announced the release date her forthcoming EP Life On Earth. “Dropping my new EP Life On Earth July 10. Pre-save now,” the “Session 32” singer tweeted.
The upcoming project will serve as a follow-up to her debut album Over It, which was released in October 2019. The 18-track LP featured appearances from 6LACK, Bryson Tiller, Usher, PartyNextDoor, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Jhené Aiko and Drake. It also featured the hits songs “Girls Need Love,” “Come Thru,” “Playing Games,” “I’ll Kill you” and “Stretch You Out.”
Back in February, the album officially became certified platinum by the RIAA. Walker took to Instagram to celebrate the news. “PLATINUM,” she wrote. “Thanks so much guys. This is how my life goes lol every time I take a L I get a W.”
Following its release, Over It broke Beyonce’s Lemonade streaming record and landed her the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It also became the second-most streamed album by any R&B artist ever, following just behind The Weeknd’s Starboy.
Although things were going well for Walker musically, she suffered from social anxiety and ultimately decided to cancel part of her tour. “Hey y’all as you know, I have been very open about my struggle with social anxiety,” she wrote on Twitter. “I want to continue to be healthy and to make music for y’all, so I have decided to cut down some of the dates on the tour. I’m grateful for every single one of you. I hope that you understand.”
Walker recently performed her hits “Session 32” and “Come Thru,” alongside Usher, at the 2020 BET Awards. She was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B/Pop Artist.
