Summer Walker - Playing Games

[Verse 1]
Whip, bought it
Crib, got it
Job, on it
Did I ever
Ask you to take me to go
Shopping in Paris or go
Sailing overseas and just
Drape me in Gucci? No
All I ever asked was you to
Pick up the phone when you alone
All I ever asked was you to
Show me some love, kisses and hugs
No, I never had an issue
Go to the club with your boys, baby, I
Never wanted you to stay too long
Just wanted you to show me off

So won't you say my name, say my name?
If you claim you want me, it ain't no thang
You acting kind of shady
You ain't been calling me baby, oh
Boy, you can go'n stop playing games
Playing games

“Playing Games” is a song by American singer Summer Walker. It was released as the lead single from their debut studio album Over It on August 23, 2019. Lyrically, the song depicts Walker “addressing the lame dudes that continue to take their passion for granted” while not acknowledging “their relationship on Instagram”. The chorus is a full interpolation of the 1999 Destiny's Child single “Say My Name”. On October 4, 2019, the extended version with Bryson Tiller was released alongside Over It as well as the music video. Despite the video featuring vocals from Tiller, he does not appear in the clip. The video features shots of Walker sitting and lying on a bed surrounded by bright city lights in the backdrop. During the video, Walker has one man tied up and hanging from the ceiling while another one is seen being confined to a chair. Being fed-up with lies, Walker goes on to ignore a man bringing them flowers and apologizing. “Playing Games” eventually peaked at number sixteen Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for “Favorite Soul/R&B Song” at the AMAs but lost to “Heartless” by The Weeknd.
