Summer Walker has gone a long way in her career. Her mega hit album Over It, which featured huge musicians like Usher, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Bryson Tiller, has won a 2x Platinum plaque. In addition, she tied a Billboard record by having 18 singles on the Hot 100 last year.
Summer paid homage to the lengthy trip she’d traveled on Sunday. She shared two old Instagram photos of herself from when she worked as a cleaning lady. In the photos, she is holding cleaning products. Summer keeps her message simple in the caption, adding, “Don’t give up.”
From 2016 to 2018, the big R&B star worked as a cleaner in Atlanta, as well as stripping on occasion. She’s a self-taught guitarist who learned the guitar from YouTube lessons. This isn’t to argue that Walker’s life is perfect now that she’s famous. Her feud with her ex-boyfriend London On Da Track has lasted.
She referred to him as the “worst baby daddy on the face of the earth” and trashed the flowers he had given her for Mother’s Day. The industry has also been difficult for her. “I’ll be glad when we get back to a time where being ‘real’ can be honored and accepted again,” she recently said of show business.
