Interscope RecordsAfter keeping her fans waiting four hours for her to perform Monday night in Toronto, Summer Walker is explaining why her performance was delayed.
The “Girls Need Love” singer is blaming the problem on custom officials at the Canadian/American border.
“They held my truck up with all my equipment, my band equipment,” she said Tuesday in an Instagram Live video captured by Billboard. “They held all that up at the border for mad long that I didn’t even know about until today. How we gonna play a show with no drums and no mics and no guitar.”
The Soul Train Award winner for Best New Artist has been in a social media firestorm since she recently announced she was cutting her tour short due to her “anxiety and my introverted personality.”
Fans were also upset when Summer posted photos of her hanging out with Drake before the show, and commented she disrespected them by spending time with Dizzy instead of getting ready for the concert.
She defended herself, saying she was Drake for only a very brief time.
“We only spoke for two minutes. I literally got in there, had 10 minutes to get my makeup done,” Summer continued. “ By the time I do that, him, Meek [Mill] and some others just walk in. I say hello, we take a picture. We talk. We probably exchanged about literally two sentences, and then they said Summer, it’s time to go on stage.”
Walker’s abbreviated “The First and Last Tour” continues Wednesday in Royal Oak, Michigan, and runs through December 22 in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
