    That she peaked with The first two projects and all the attempts by the machine to increase her profile has failed.

    Summer Walker selling 125k 1st week has to have HER’s handlers confused

    HER has performed at every award show

    she was given a Grammy

    she’s releasing songs with YG :why:

    most talented artist of her class but she’s just not connecting :mjcry:

    My biggest problem with her is that I wouldnt know her if she walked by me.

    Isn’t that part of the marketing?

    Wow, I'm officially out of the loop. Never heard of Summer Walker, not even any of her songs yet I'm seeing now that she had the highest streaming week for an R&B artist.

    As for H.E.R., I loved her debut album and Best Part is a song that I view as a modern day classic (playing it for my wedding :wow:) but I was disappointed by I Used to Know Her and found it very underwhelming. She's still the best live performer and overall most talented of her generation however and she's young enough to turn things around.

    I put her in that class of "should be bigger" along with Jeremih. Hell, Jeremih barely even has a presence on social media, but I guess he's doing well, writing for other people.

    Jeremih is one of those artists whose songs are bigger than he is if that makes any sense. He's like the R&B French Montana lol

    Call me bitter or old but I will forever dispute this selling nonsense. Streaming is not sales

    Yep, it’s going to be another one of those what should’ve been

    honestly her career arch isn’t much different from Tinashe at the moment aside from the Tinashe desperate pleas on social media

    OP failed to mention Summer Walker had that Drake stimulus package. Once that formula worked for an unknown Migos its has been tried and tru ever since.

    HER has yet to make a hit song that resonates on that same level as what Ella Mae had.

    Nah, Tinashe doesn't have any albums anywhere close to H.E.R. as far as popularity. (H.E.R. went gold, all of Tinashe's joints have gone plastic). And H.E.R. was able to go mainstream doing the type of music she wanted to do whereas Tinashe tried to go pop and make music that her small but loyal fanbase didn't want her to make. Not comparable at all imo.

    I'd argue that Best Part resonates on that level. For our generation that's a classic love song

    Exactly.

    Summer Walker seems to resonate pretty well with the masses. Talent can take you to a certain level, but the key is what ppl will gravitate to.

    I also look at streaming. I always loved it, but hated the way record sales were counted. I understand it more, now.

    And with all that being said, it still seems like H.E R. should be doing well in the streaming department. It has to be a marketing issue.

    No it doesnt. Best Part is no "Boo'd Up."

    And I'm the guy that roots for both Daniel and Gabby.
