Promotion[edit]

An "old school" commercial was released via Walker's YouTube channel on September 30 to promote the album, which was compared to infomercials for R&B albums from the 1990s.[2] Few days before the actual album release, Walker promoted the album by putting various payphone in various cities painted in the theme of the album. A phone number was to be dialed to listen to the album few days before. After the album's release, Walker premiered a special on Beats 1 guest starring Ari Lennox, as part of their R&B Now series.[7]

Commercial performance[edit]

Over It debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 with 134,000 album-equivalent units (including 14,000 pure album sales). Its debut week marks the largest streaming week for an R&B album by a female artist, in terms of on-demand audio streams.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

Over It was met with critical acclaim upon release. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 86, based on 6 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim."[9]
