Platinum-certified “Karma” tops urban mainstream radio
Summer Walker will host The Clear Series – One Night Only on June 1st at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA. In her hometown, the multi-Platinum hitmaker will be joined by a live orchestra as she cycles through her countless hits, a number of fan-favorite deep cuts, and gives the live debut of new material from her Clear 2: Soft Life EP, which was released last week. The nine-track EP, a sequel to 2019’s Clear EP, boasts a starry lineup of A-list collaborators such as Childish Gambino and J. Cole and production work from Solange, Steve Lacy, John Kirby and Jay Versace.
Tickets to Summer Walker: The Clear Series – One Night Only will be available for artist pre-sale beginning Tuesday, May 23rd at noon EDT through Friday, May 26th at 9 am EDT. A Live Nation presale will run from Thursday, May 25th at 10 am EDT through Friday, May 26th at 9 am EDT. General ticket sales for the public will commence on Friday, May 26th at 10 am EDT.
As if she weren’t winning enough, Walker also claims a new No. 1 hit on urban mainstream radio this week with “Karma.” The song was originally released in 2018 on her Last Day of Summer masterpiece but came roaring back in late 2022 after a sped-up version from creator @whereisreese went viral on TikTok. The millions of streams it generated pushed “Karma” to Platinum status, and its success sparked a full revamp of her Last Day of Summer as an entire sped-up album, Last Day of Summer (Sped Up). The project is the first sped-up album from a major recording artist and is a result of the singer listening to her devoted fanbase, who found pleasure in revisiting the classic album in a reimagined way.
