Summer Walker, who celebrated her 26th birthday yesterday (April 11), has released a playful BTS video accompaniment to her massive new single, “No Love (Extended Version),” which features Cardi B and SZA.
The new visual features interviews with the cast and crew, plus some exciting looks at the making of the video. The supplement follows the official video for the extended version, which has accrued over 8.5 million views in the two weeks since its release.
“No Love (Extended Version)” originally featured a music video that reunited Summer with her frequent collaborator, director Lacey Duke. In the video, all three ladies invoke their respective Zodiac signs of fire, water, and air.
In its original form, “No Love” instantly lit up charts around the world upon its debut last November. The song surged to No.1 on Apple Music’s U.S. Top 100 chart and became the first song to dethrone Adele’s long-standing champ “Easy on Me.” Plus, though it wasn’t an official single at the time, “No Love” 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 most one-week streams ever by a female R&B artist, with 201.1 million in its debut week, and was the first R&B album by a female act to top the Billboard 200 albums chart since 2016. Those achievements, along with 18 Hot 100 hits from the project, powered Summer to be honored with the Chartbreaker Award at Billboard’s annual Women in Music celebration earlier this month.
Summer also recently embarked on the first run of The Summer Walker Series tour, a limited engagement run of Live Nation produced shows.
She recently visited Houston’s 713 Music Hall on March 20 and Chicago’s Byline Bank Aragon Ballroom on March 31, and will hit Dallas’ The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory on April 16.
