Summer Walker (LVRN/Interscope Records) has unleashed her new EP titled Girls Need Love (Girls Mix) in celebration of her acclaimed 2018 mixtape, Last Day of Summer, hitting its fifth anniversary. The EP serves as a special thank you to her beloved fans who’ve supported her since she made her ground-breaking debut.
The Girls Need Love (Girls Mix) EP comes equipped with five different versions of Walker’s breakout hit single “Girls Need Love,” which is also certified 6X-platinum. Three of the tracks feature guest verses from a trio of leading women, including Victoria Monét, Tyla, and Tink. Walker also gifts fans an acoustic version of the Last Day of Summer standout track along with the original version to close out the project.
“Girls Need Love (Acoustic)” leads the way for the EP, as well as the official music video which is out now (check it out above). In the Lacey Duke-directed visual, Walker is dressed in a Winnie The Pooh-inspired onesie and links up with her crew, who are also wearing animal-inspired loungewear, in a home while she serenades listeners about the wants and needs of a woman.
Last Day of Summer spawned her multi-platinum single, “Girls Need Love,” and the celebrated remix featuring Drake, which soared to No.2 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs and entered the top 40 of the Hot 100. Last year, Summer released the revamped version of Last Day of Summer (Sped-Up) after the viral explosion of her sped-up platinum-certified single “Karma,” which created spikes in her streams.
In addition to the release of the Girls Need Love (Girls Mix) EP, Walker will be dropping an exclusive cobalt blue vinyl for Last Day of Summer. Fans will also be treated to special limited-edition merchandise that Walker will be dropping on her official website to coincide with the vinyl release.
