“Come Thru” strikes a perfect balance between sultry and bouncy.
While Walker has been proving that she can create the smooth R&B reminiscent of the 90s and early 2000s, she has also shown a commitment to infusing it with an updated twist. London On Da Track – one of the innovators of trap’s sound – being behind the boards on Over It also renders the music less traditional. While the chord progressions he uses calls Destiny’s Child to mind, his drums have a modern swing and weight to them. On “Come Thru,” Walker sings a wavy chorus that is bolstered to an exhilarating level when Usher joins in to sing it with her. Their vocals are layered beautifully, with ad-libs and runs calling out from all directions to spark R&B fireworks.
