ber two on the Billboard 200 chart, and has since been certified platinum by the RIAA. This new album is already showing to be more successful than her previous one as it has broken many records such as it being the biggest 24 hour debut on Apple Music by a female artist and the biggest debut for an R&B album ever. Walker also joins Taylor Swift as the only female artist to have 18 songs chart simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100, with the song ‘No Love’ featuring SZA charting the highest at No. 13. Additionally, across all streaming platforms ‘Still Over It’ accumulated 201.1 million on demand streams, breaking Walker’s own previous record for the largest streaming week ever for an R&B album by a woman.

Walker released ‘Ex for a Reason’ as the lead single from the album with JT from City Girls on

October 14, which was different from many of her previous songs as it was more upbeat. Walker then teased her fans on October 18 by putting hard drives with the album on it in a glass box, challenging her fans to break it open to listen to the new album. She did this in several cities with the first one being in New York, where one fan actually broke the box and got the hard drive. Fans on twitter praised Walker for her creative promotion describing her as innovative. Senior Eunice Kim has ‘Still Over It’ on repeat saying, “I love this new album so much, my favorite songs are ‘Session 33’ and ‘Throw It Away!’” Another Senior Chanell Ilar also loves this album saying, “This is definitely my favorite album of Summer Walker’s so far!”

Walker’s fanbase has grown tremendously thanks to this new album and the future seems bright for her career as the album is showing to be one of the most successful of 2021.
