I think it is safe to say that Summer Walker’s new album, Still Over It, did indeed give the emotional rollercoaster the fans were looking for. Walker creates a story with the sequence of her songs. Since this album comes on the heels of the spit between Walker and London on da Track, fans are led to believe that the romantic drama she sings of is about their relationship. Here are my top five recommended songs you should listen to.
“Mad at the fact he ain’t with you, mad at the fact that it’s me.”
Now this song will stay on repeat until it can’t repeat anymore. Walker knew what she was doing when she made this the first song on her album, which is why it is my favorite. “Bitter” gives me that feeling of when your boo has a crazy ex and she’s mad at you for being with ole dude, then she becomes enraged at ole dude for being with you. What do you call that? Bitter.
“God bless me, God help me. I think I’m insane.”
The melody and vibe Walker produced on this song made me put myself in her shoes. Do you ever feel like your significant other plays mind games with you so much that you think you’re becoming insane? If you can relate, this one will be your go-to song when you and your boo are mad at each other. If you know what I mean!
#3 No Love
“It would be no loving you.”
CAUTION: This is not a song about people in a full-blown happy relationship. This song will only make sense if you can relate to it. “No Love” is strictly for the girls who aren’t in love, but use the boy for their pleasure. Walker talks just about that. She has realized that the boy is no good for love but is good for many other things. This is also known as a “no strings attached” situationship.
“Toxic, Ooh toxic, yeah.”
Now I’m pretty sure a lot of us teens can relate to a toxic relationship with our boo. But at the end of the day it’s no one’s business to understand what y’all have going on. This is a song you can sing while you’re sitting right next ya boo and putting your finger all in his/her face. Yeah I said it. Make your significant other feels every word Walker is singing.
#5 You Don’t Know Me
“You don’t know me like I know you.”
Now this song is a bit slower and very repetitive. Summer makes her statement by explaining how you can be with someone for so long, have a child with them, and your significant other still doesn’t know who you are internally. Ladies, have you been in something similar to what Walker has gone through? If so, then this song will be one of your faves too.
In my opinion, these are the best five songs on Still Over it. However, I will leave you with this word of advice. If you are currently in a loving relationship, please listen to these songs at your own discretion. If you know, you know.
