Summer Walker is celebrating the fifth anniversary of her critically acclaimed debut mixtape Last Day of Summer by releasing the Girls Need Love (Girls Mix) EP on Friday (Oct. 20) via LVRN and Interscope Records.

The EP has five different versions of Walker’s breakout hit single “Girls Need Love,” which is five-times certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The Drake remix catapulted the track into the top 40 sector of the Billboard Hot 100 and reached No. 16 on Billboard‘s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Walker tapped Victoria Monét, Tyla and Tink to contribute guest verses to three of the tracks. She tagged them on the project’s cover artwork, which is a March 4, 2019, tweet of her asking to “text ur man ‘I just need some d–k with no complications’ and tweet me his reply lol.” The EP also includes an acoustic version of the song, which came out earlier this week, as well as the original version of “Girls Need Love.”

Walker is also releasing an exclusive cobalt blue vinyl of Last Day of Summer, as well as special limited-edition merch, on her website. Last Day of Summer — which became certified platinum by the RIAA earlier this week — was originally released on Oct. 19, 2018. It reached No. 25 on Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 44 on the Billboard 200.


The Girls Need Love (Girls Mix) arrives five months after her Clear 2: Soft Life EP, a nine-track project featuring an “audio hug” from J. Cole and a “New Type” collaboration with Childish Gambino. Clear 2: Soft Life reached No. 7 on Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 26 on the Billboard 200.

Impossible is simply a challenge. Just look at Blink-182, which has reunited with its classic lineup for One More Time… (via Columbia), a project millions of fans hoped and dreamed for, but, until a year ago, no-one would have bet a buck on. In October 2022, the pop-punk legends announced a reunion with former singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge for a 2023 global tour and the single “EDGING”. After twice leaving the band — in 2005 and then again in 2014 — […]
