Just weeks after Summer Walker dropped her record-breaking album debut with Over It, the R&B singer-songwriter might be calling it quits. Over the weekend Walker took to Instagram to share a post, providing a caption that implies she’ll be exiting the music industry once she finishes her “The First and Last Tour.”

“Na fr though I’ve decided y’all don’t deserve me lol I knew from day one I was to real for this shit,” Walker shared. “Y’all can have the music & ima just head out. f*ck the interviews, photo shoots, videos, & really the shows too. I’ll finish this tour out tho.” She continued, “I’m just a regular person, nothing more. lol people got this fame shit fucked up. I been me from day one, I’m not bout to start acting different, talking different, treating people different, or looking different. people really expect too much from you.”

While it’s unclear as to whether or not how serious she is about her so deemed “retirement” from the music industry, it’s clear that she’s feeling the pressure of her fast-rising stardom. Walker has previously noted she has immense social anxiety, as she noted in her recent Tiny Desk Concert performance for NPR. The news comes just a week after Walker and boyfriend London On Da Track (who produced a majority of Over It) broke up, only to be seen reunited less than 24 hours later.

na fr though I’ve decided y’all don’t deserve me lol I knew from day one I was to real for this shit. y’all can have the music & ima just head out. fuck the interviews, photo shoots, videos, & really the shows too. I’ll finish this tour out tho. I’m just a regular person, nothing more. lol people got this fame shit fucked up. I been me from day one, I’m not bout to start acting different, talking different, treating people different, or looking different. people really expect too much from you. Everyday / everything isn’t a miss America bad bitch contest, & I don’t feel the need to put others down to stay relevant. people really just DISCONNECTED…. hiding behind these apps, these filters, the clothes, the makeup, the hair lol a lot of y’all need to step back & get into yourselves.. from a different perspective. take the same amount of time that you normally do to prepare/improve your physical but apply it to your spirit & become COMFORTABLE with the real you, whoever that may be as long as your not hurting anyone. That same amount of time you take to chase the “bag” try putting that same amount of energy into patience, acceptance, understanding, self awareness, self love but I know no one gives a shit about what I’m saying so yeah. peace love & light ✌??
