Walker recently released her debut album Over It. The 18-track full-length project executive produced by London On Da Track is a follow-up to her Last Day of Summer release. Over It is marked by features from Drake, Jhené Aiko, 6LACK, Usher, A Boogie wit da Hoodie and PARTYNEXTDOOR.

The rising singer also recently dropped a visual for her single “Stretch You Out,” as well as the music video for her current single “Playing Games.”

In the beginning of the clip, Summer lies alone singing the first few verses from the track. As the video continues, she is spotted with numerous love interests in a series of different scenes where she is in complete control rather than playing a damsel in distress. Bryson Tiller who is featured on the track doesn’t make an appearance, but as his verse is played, Summer finds her way back to her bedroom.
