Despite setbacks, Keke Palmer continues her bid for the princess R&B crown.
The ‘Scream Queens’ actress previously released her ‘Waiting to Exhale’ album via Soundcloud, but the debut project failed intrigue the ears of music lovers due to its kids bop skew and undeveloped vocals.
Eager to launch a functioning music career, the 23-year-old has released a 5-track EP named ‘Lauren.’ It’s aim? To open the gates of vulnerability.
Taking its title from the Chicago-native’s first name, ‘Lauren’ aims to introduce the masses to the multi-faceted star’s charismatic personality and her journey of self-discovery.
Taking her cue from various artist who have released projects this year, Palmer accompanies the EP with a 16-minute visual that paints the mood of each track.

‘Lauren’ is a solid inauguration to Keke’s musically vulnerable persona. But in order for the former child-star to thrive in music, she’ll have to cultivate her vocals and shred the early 00’s sound.
Though a solid step forward, she now needs to take broader and more resonating strides.
