SUMMER WALKER – SUMMER SERIES

R&B streaming supernova Summer Walker is back to release her Amazon Music Live EP Summer Series. The five-track offering includes live performances of fan-favorite Summer records, including “Over It,” “Playing Games,” “Session 32,” “Throw It Away,” and “Unloyal.” Stream “Summer Series (Amazon Music Live),” here

Summer has enjoyed a string of stellar performances over the last few months, beginning with her sold-out concert, A Hot Summer Night, last June. She continued her fiery onslaught at London’s Wireless Festival last month, where her rousing effort amazed the crowd and left her awestruck by their courteous reception. 

This week, she’ll take her talents to New York’s Hulu Theatre this Friday at the prestigious Madison Square Garden before heading out to Detroit’s Fox Theatre on August 17th. In recent months, Walker also landed prominent feature appearances alongside fellow music heavyweights Kendrick Lamar (“Purple Hearts”) and The Weeknd (“Best Friend (Remix).”

After being nominated for the Billboard Music Awards and BET Awards, Summer earned another nomination at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Nominated for Best R&B Video, Summer’s R&B scorcher “No Love (Extended Version)” featuring Cardi B and SZA sits at 19 million on YouTube and remains a contender for song of the year in the R&B space. 

In its original form with Summer Walker and SZA,No Love” instantly lit up charts upon its debut last November. The song surged to No. 1 on Apple Music’s U.S. Top 100 chart and, though it wasn’t an official single at the time, also debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 to become Summer Walker‘s highest-charting hit. The collab appears on Summer’s Still Over It, which broke the record for the album for the most one-week streams ever by a female R&B artist and was the first R&B album by a female act to top the Billboard 200 since 2016. Those achievements led Summer to be honored with the Chartbreaker Award at Billboard’s annual Women in Music.

LISTEN TO “MAN OF THE YEAR” by LIL POPPA

At just 18-years-old, Lil Poppa has already drawn major attention for tracks like “Purple Hearts” — an independent release that’s organically amassed over 2.6 million YouTube views, all on the strength of Poppa’s straight-from-the-heart delivery and hard-hitting lyrics. Signed by Interscope’s Executive Vice President Joie Manda, this new signing further cements the company’s proven track record in breaking exciting new rap artists; “Natural talent spotlights itself, and with Poppa’s raw talent and unwavering mission to get his message out — there seems to be no stopping Poppa’s undeniable rise. He’s one to watch,” adds Joie.

Poppa began rapping each week at church, joining a group of friends and sharing rhymes with a spiritual bent. At age 12, he built a makeshift studio in his closet and started self-recording with a laptop and Radio Shack microphone. With a string of mixtapes under his belt, Poppa made his breakthrough with a pair of singles from 2018: “Nightmare on Elm St.” and “Purple Hearts,” whose cinematic video revealed the real-life story behind the song.”
