According to a recent interview with singer Summer Walker, J. Cole has moved her to tears with a new song collaboration. During an episode of Young Miami’s REVOLT TV talk show Caresha Please, Walker provided some insights to viewers about her new track featuring the Grammy Award-winning rapper. Walker began by mentioning that the song is called “Audio Hug.” She had initially asked Cole to work on a song together, but due to her being heavily pregnant at the time, they couldn’t meet in person. However, Cole ended up sending her something called “Audio Hug,” which deeply touched her.
“So we have a song called ‘Audio Hug,’” Summer Walker began. “I had asked him to do a song, he really didn’t get time to do it. He wanted to meet and I was so f*cking pregnant, oh my God, I can’t. I don’t know if you seen them pictures, I was like 200 pounds. My ankles were huge. It was crazy. So we didn’t meet. But, he did end up sending me something called ‘Audio Hug.’” Although they didn’t meet in the studio, they did have a chance to hang out at Dreamville, where they had a good time. They also went to Dave & Buster’s afterward and played basketball, where Cole and everyone else got beaten. Walker mentioned that she doesn’t typically like working in the studio, but their interaction was enjoyable.

Recently, during the Dreamville Festival, Walker announced her upcoming EP titled “Clear 2: Soft Life.” Since then, her fans have been eagerly anticipating its release. Earlier this week, Walker decided to give her fans a sneak peek of the EP. She shared a video on social media, showing her enjoying the company of her friends Sexyy Red and Sukihana. They can be seen lounging by the pool and comically sampling caviar. In a lighthearted moment, Walker humorously questions, “So this is what the Caucasian people be eatin’?” Towards the end of the video, she finally reveals the details that her fans have been eagerly waiting for—the tracklist of the EP. Finally, the wait is over, and the EP is now available.
As seen in the tweet above, the EP is getting lots of love. Sukihana, who was featured in some of the teaser material for Summer Walker’s EP, tweeted her love for the project. “So proud of my sister summer that listening to her tape has me in tears,” Suki wrote. “All my fans stream Summer walkers new project all day and night.” In addition, both Rubi Rose and Latto posted about the EP.
