Summer Walker is ending 2020 with a big win, the singer/songwriter back in July released her ‘Life On Earth’ Ep, a five track project after a long hiatus.
Today, Dec 10, 2020, the “Playing Games” artist has announced her own record label Ghetto Earth Records in collaboration with Interscope Records.
“I came up with Ghetto Earth because earth is ghetto,” said Walker in a statement. “I don’t wanna be controlling over my artist’s music. I want them to be fully involved in everything they put out. I’m just here to support and help them get to wherever it is they’re trying to go in life.”
“I’m excited to show people my music, and what I have to offer. I feel like being on Summer’s team, Ghetto Earth Records, is the right home for me to be as creative as possible as an artist. She’s really understanding of what a true artist is, as she is one herself. I’m free to create here and it’s always a great feeling as an artist to be able to make music for a team that gets the sound that you’re trying to create.” Added her first signee NO1-NOAH who appeared on her “White Tee” and “SWV” tracks.
“Summer is a true visionary,” added Interscope’s Nicole Wyskoarko, EVP/Co-Head of A&R. “She’s writing her own rules as one of the most talented artists in R&B music today and is now adding entrepreneur to her vast repertoire. Summer brings an unapologetically outspoken and empowering voice to Ghetto Earth and a radically different and much-needed perspective to developing emerging talent such as NO1-NOAH. We are thrilled that Summer has chosen Interscope as Ghetto Earth’s partner and home.”
