Summer Walker is exactly the voice you need to get you through cuffing season, aka autumn, aka the time when everyone is trying to get boo’d up and retreat from the onslaught of cold. The R&B crooner gets the muddling of emotion this time brings: jealousy, desire, melancholy, horniness. Despite the subject matter, her songs are buoyant, warm, and sexy, like a keyed-up SZA with Brandy’s stunning vocal range. Turn on “Stretch You Out” when you want to twerk and cry, and “Body” for when you feel crazy attracted to the person you’re having sex with right now, but still wondering: What else is out there?
