The self-described introvert thanks her fans.

(AllHipHop News) Summer Walker is arguably the biggest breakout R&B performer of 2019. Her debut studio album, Over It, peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart by breaking a streaming record for a female R&B artist.

The LoveRenaissance representative then headed out on tour to support her new LP. However, Walker announced on Twitter that she is leaving the road to deal with her mental health.

"Hey y’all as you know, I have been very open about my struggle with social anxiety. I want to continue to be healthy and to make music for y'all, so I have decided to cut down some of the dates on the tour. I'm grateful for every single one of you. I hope that you understand," tweeted Walker 

The 23-year-old singer also posted a video thanking her supporters and explaining that she cannot finish the trek. She updated her remaining dates to include stops in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, Atlanta, and other cities.

"I really hope that people understand and respect that I'm a person, I have feelings," said Walker in her Twitter vid.
