LoveRenaissance (LVRN) and Interscope Records are pleased to announce the music video for “Come Thru,” the latest entree from singer-songwriter-soul siren, Summer Walker and Grammy-winning R&B legend, Usher. Directed by Lacey Duke, the steamy new clip was shot at the notorious 285 Flea Market in Atlanta.
Produced by London on da Track, the foundation of “Come Thru” was built on Usher’s 1997 hit “You Make Me Wanna,” which made him the natural choice for this special guest turn. Jermaine Dupri, who co-wrote the original version, also pops up in the video. The highly infectious love song is the second official single from Walker’s history-making debut, Over It, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 200 last fall and remains in the Top 10.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) recently handed out a Gold certification for “Come Thru” and double Platinum for the album’s lead single, “Playing Games.” Meanwhile, Walker’s breakout smash, “Girls Need Love,” from last year’s Last Day of Summer project, is also certified 2x Platinum. Collectively, the 23-year-old singer’s catalog has been streamed a whopping 2.5 billion times globally.
Walker successfully wrapped her First and Last Tour in support of the album in late December. The six-week jaunt kicked off with a trio of sold-out dates in London, followed by a string of sold-out shows across the United States. The artist recently won her first Soul Train Music Award (for Best New Artist) and has been confirmed to perform at Coachella 2020 in April.
Summer Walker’s critically acclaimed album Over It is available worldwide on all digital platforms via LVRN/Interscope.
