Summer Walker Drops Dreamy "Clear 2: Soft Life" EP, Featuring Childish Gambino, J. Cole
The last time we heard new music from Summer Walker was in 2021. At that point, she released her second album, Still Over It. The record gave a behind-the-scenes look at her relationship with producer London On Da Track. The album became a certified hit, giving Walker her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Since then, the R&B songstress has lent her incredible talents to collaborations with the likes of Ari Lennox, Ciara, and The Weeknd. She has also expanded her family with the arrival of twin babies.
The artist first announced her Clear 2: Soft Life EP during Dreamville Festival a few weeks ago. Since then, her fans have been waiting with bated breath. Earlier this week, Walker decided to treat her fans to a sneak peek of the EP. In a video posted to social media, Walker is seen enjoying the company of her friends, Sexyy Red and Sukihana. They lounge by the pool and sample caviar in a comedic manner. Posing a humorous question, the singer asks, "So this is what the Caucasian people be eatin'?" Then, she finally revealed the details that fans have eagerly been waiting for. The video concluded with the project's tracklist. Now, the wait is finally over.

Summer Walker Longs For The Soft Life
Summer Walker is back in fighting form on her new EP. It's R&B perfection, equal parts soulful and sexy. The atmosphere of the project makes listening to it feel like a sort of fever dream. Walker is great enough on her own, but she also tapped artists like J. Cole and Childish Gambino to feature on the new effort.
While the features are certainly a highlight, the standout track is "Hardlife." On it, the singer talks about her experience in relationships as a black woman. "Tired of seein' all these, all these / Spanish and these white bitches," Summer sings smoothly. "Livin' they soft life with they feet kicked up / And they glass in hand, bills paid, thanks to the man." Interestingly, on the final track, "Agayu's Revelation," Walker seems to have reached the conclusion that she can't change someone who isn't ready to change in a relationship.
