Summer Walker is done “Playing Games,” after earning a Billboard Hot 100 entry with the track from her debut studio album Over It.
The chorus directly reconstructs Destiny’s Child’s hook from the 1999 No. 1 hit “Say My Name.” Meanwhile in the verses, she name-drops vacation spots and designers to say what she wants from a guy is rather simple: “All I ever asked was you to/ Pick up the phone when you alone/ All I ever asked was you to/ Show me some love, kisses and hugs.”
Check out the lyrics and feisty music video below.
Whip, bought it Crib, got it Job, on it Did I ever Ask you to take me to go Shopping in Paris or go Sailing overseas and just Drape me in Gucci? No All I ever asked was you to Pick up the phone when you alone All I ever asked was you to Show me some love, kisses and hugs No, I never had an issue Go to the club with your boys, baby, I Never wanted you to stay too long Just wanted you to show me off
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
I know you saying "hit my line" I'm on your line, and that You want this bad So I'm bool with that I'm just trying to match your words with your actions I need more than satisfaction Did you really a connection? Really want to give your all But flex in front of your friends How that work? Swear that you doing the most But we take a picture, can't post it How that work? When you talking Back that shit up Won't you say my, say my
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
Games (games) Games (oh, games) We got London on da Track
