Summer Walker’s new R&B album Still Over It, reveals her vulnerability in a way none of her previous albums have. Throughout the twenty songs in her album, she sings about the frustration she feels towards her ex and baby’s father for leaving her alone through her pregnancy. She expresses her regret towards doing so much for someone who deserved so little.
This album is Walker’s story of her and her ex, producer London on da Track’s messy breakup. Through her songs, she manages to translate her anger at the chaos that surrounded her, into music that tells the story of her heartbreak for other women who’ve also been hurt.
The opening song, “Bitter” with Cardi B, includes a narration by her at the end of the song. Her narration comes in the form of a skit, encouraging Walker to keep going forward with honor despite anything else going on. This song sets up the tone for the rest of the album. The artist tweeted about the song, It makes me relive all of the drama ******* put me through… I forgive y’all but **** y’all. 
The eleventh song on the album is my personal favorite “Unloyal”, with Ari Lennox. It’s a bluesy, melodic, and soulful R&B song where Walker and Lennox’s voices pair together perfectly. The first time I listened to it, I immediately loved it. “No Love”, “Throw it Away”, “You Don’t Know Me”, and “Ex For A Reason” are a few of my other favorites.
The second half of the album wasn’t as good as the first half, but “Toxic” featuring Lil Durk, and “4th Baby Mama” saved it for me. In “4th Baby Mama”, Walker throws shade at her ex. “You ain’t give a **** about me, you was just tryna cash in,” she sings sultrily, and the song ends with her saying how he made her spend her entire pregnancy alone. 
The last song on the album, “Ciara’s Prayer”, is an affirming, benediction, narrated by Ciara. This prayer ends the album with reminders and affirmations every woman should hear: I am a Queen, I deserve to be treated like one. I’m a warrior, I will get up […] I’m an overcomer, I’m built for this.” 
This album is a big turning point for Summer Walker, because she does more than her usual slow, 90s/2000s vibe of R&B love songs. Her previous album, Over It, consisted of many surface level pop hits, whereas in Still Over It, she becomes open and more emotionally vulnerable in her music. It takes us through the real grittiness of what happened between her and London.
