New releases from the R&B starlets Summer Walker and Jess Lamarre are making waves at home and away today.

Summer’s latest body of work, a elease named ‘Life on Earth’ , dropped on July 10th 2020.
Though its first week figures are a far cry from the digits she bagged with her debut set ‘Over It’, ‘Earth’ has spent the last week dominating streaming services as it garners positive reviews from fans in and outside of the United States.
On Spotify, a number of the set’s individual tracks have earned over $7,000 a piece within the last seven days.
That number flies north of the $100,000 mark once sales and streams generated from all platforms are taken into consideration.
The set is expected to open with sales of around 33,000 sales-equivalent units.
Elsewhere, Jess Lamarre unlocks her debut EP ‘Phases Of‘.
If Ms. Lamarre looks familiar that may be because her time in the industry has seen her serve as a Mariah Carey backing dancer and the leading lady in a number of Charlie Wilson projects.
The sum of her work? A growing fan base (mainly based in Europe, West Africa & Asia) and endorsements from Apple Music UK, Shazam and the BBC.
Today, she launches a fresh bid to make similar moves in her domestic market with a 9 track set which houses the singles ‘Contact’ (10,250 pure units sold globally) and ‘Wallpaper‘ which helped push her total sold/streamed over the 1 million mark.
Like Kelly Rowland and Amerie before her, Lamarre has seen the lion’s share of her success rise from markets outside of the US with Francophone nations (she is Haitian-American) housing some of her biggest wins.
Will ‘Phases Of’ deliver similar gains to her on home soil?
