What’s a song without a little assist from Mr. Do Right And Kill Everything? Well the general public got their answer when Atlanta-based R&B singer-songwriter, Summer Walker notched her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. Her single “Girls Need Love,” with Drake, debuted at No. 87. Not bad for rookie in the game.
The song, an immediate highlight off her freshman album Last Day of Summer was the artists first billboard entry. Since then it’s taken the No. 6 spot on the charts. Produced by Arsenio Archer, the song originally dropped last July and has been doing a pretty good job at stirring up all the feels in every generation X and millennial thus far. The Southern crooner’s tones are reminiscent of the late Aaliyah and give the audience a bit of a 90’s vibe with a no-holds-barred attitude on her needs and whom she’d like to fulfill them. No surprise Drake jumps in with a verse towards the middle echoing her sentiments. He chants:
Arched back, deep stroke, white wine, weed smoke, that’s my best combination
You just need some, dick with no complications
You just need some, you just need some, late night attention, uncondition”
The track concurrently debuts at No. 42 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and rises 48-35 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, while Walker catapults to a new level *ASAP Ferg voice* on the emerging Artists chart (45-23).
Meanwhile, Drake remains undefeated remaining No.1 for the coveted spot. Champagnepapi adds this hit to his 193rd Hot 100 entry, extending his tenure on the list for the most among soloists.
