Clinging to a guitar as if it were a security blanket, Summer Walker hums in front of her camera, resurrecting the MySpace era without even meaning to. Her bathtub is the stage, her bathroom the auditorium. Later in the evening, she slips into her stripper's outfit and abandons herself to the furnace of the club that serves as a release valve. The two episodes will be shared on Instagram as if this split personality is perfectly normal.
Today, Summer Walker is 23 years old. She's been composing music for as long as she’s been able to. If she could, the Texan-born chanteuse would slip her scores under the door and flee in silence… but the star-system has decided otherwise. In 2018, she was signed by the LVRN label, which is also home to the singer Atlanta 6lack. Very quickly, R’n’B fans knighted this soul girl of a new genre who could burst into tears on stage at any time, tormented by the very gazes and affection of the people who love her.
