Summer Walker salutes Destiny's Child in new sultry ballad "Playing Games"

Interscope Records

Interscope RecordsSummer Walker is making it clear that she isn't “Playing Games.”

Friday, the Atlanta songstress delivered the London on da Track-produced ballad, which finds her challenging her lover to prove his loyalty. 

“Did I ever ask you to take me to go shopping in Paris/Or go sailing overseas and just drape me in Gucci?” she croons over the sultry melody. “All I ever asked was for you to pick up the phone when you alone/All I ever asked was you to show me some love, kisses and hugs.”

The chorus of the song interpolates Destiny's Child's "Say My Name," with Summer singing, "So won't you say my name say my name/If you claim you want me/It ain't no thang/You acting kinda shady/You ain't been calling me baby oh/Boy you can go and stop playing games/Playing games."

The fresh single arrives on the heels of Summer announcing her The First and Last Tour, slated to kick off this fall at the Mala Luna Festival in San Antonio, Texas.

The 35-city trek is set to make its way across North America, and includes stops in Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Toronto and more.
