Christmas came early for R&B singer Summer Walker. The “Girls Need Love” singer was recently surprisingly gifted a Mercedes G-Wagon.

Walker was surprised by her record label, LVRN Records, and she took to social media to share her new Christmas gift with her fans.

“Me?” Walker asks in the video before her team instructs her check out the new car. “I don’t know. I’m scared. I feel like I just sold my whole [butt].”

Walker then continued to marvel at the G-Wagon’s red interior which was exactly what she wanted. “For real guys? I feel so awkward,” Walker said.

“Setbacks don’t matter when you have a support system. Remember that. We love you,” someone from Walker’s team said in the background.

“People don’t even know what I actually went through this year… I just sucked it up & kept pushing to the best of my abilities. Stayed quiet & stayed kind & in return I just keep getting BLESSED,” Walker wrote in the caption of one of the videos that she shared on Instagram.

“I always feel so alone but these men always make sure to remind me that I have a family, that I’m valued, taken care of, & protected. This is so crazy I can’t say thank you enough @lvrngram & thank you pumkin @londonondatrack I appreciate y’all so much.”

This year has been up and down for Walker, 23. She released her debut album Over It in October and garnered the biggest streaming week for a woman R&B singer. Her 2019 tour to promote her debut album was sold out. However, Walker had to cancel the majority of the dates due to her social anxiety.
