Playing games is exactly what some Twitter commenters are accusing fans of Summer Walker of doing when they asserted the 25-year-old – who boasts only one studio album to her credit to date – is the ‘Queen of R&B for her generation.’
What’s more, the measure was co-signed by Walker, who took to social media to repost the praise.
Needless to say, it ignited a firestorm of debate.
