R&B star Summer Walker is embracing her impending motherhood in a stunning new visual for “Body.” The fan-favorite, which samples 702’s Top Ten 1997 hit, “Get It Together,” appears on her platinum-selling debut album, Over It.
Directed by frequent collaborator Lacey Duke (Skip Marley, H.E.R., Ari Lennox), the body-positive visual was filmed in Calabasas and Malibu and finds Walker in a tranquil, reflective state. The ethereal video begins in black and white, switching to color for stunning, sunset shots on the Southern California beach.
Walker’s latest visual kicks off what is likely to be another standout year for the R&B artist. 2020 found the Atlanta-based singer-songwriter basking in the spotlight, enjoying a variety of accolades for Over It, as well as for her Life on Earth EP, which dropped in July. Over the fall, Walker beat out Beyoncé and Lizzo for Top Female R&B Artist at the Billboard Music Awards, where she was also nominated for Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Album. In November, Walker scored Album of the Year for Over It at the Soul Train Awards.
Walker also received wide recognition from the media – gracing the cover of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players issue and starring alongside Erykah Badu for Rolling Stone’s Musicians on Musicians cover.
In December, Walker began her journey as a record label executive with her new imprint, Ghetto Earth Records – a joint venture deal with Interscope Records. The label’s first signee is singer-songwriter NO1-NOAH, who appeared with Walker on two Life on Earth tracks: “White Tee” and “SWV.”
Walker also released an expanded Over It – Complete Set, featuring the album’s original 18 songs (including hits “Playing Games” and “Come Through”), plus live tracks, a cappella versions, and instrumentals. The original album, released in October 2019, landed on a variety of year-end lists, including those by Rolling Stone, Billboard, Variety, and Complex. The title was also a best-seller, debuting at No.2 on the Billboard 200, and topping the R&B chart for 14 non-consecutive weeks.
