It’s liftoff for Lauren Jauregui!
Following releases from the likes of Camila Cabello, Dinah Jane, and Normani, the former Fifth Harmony star is the latest member of the one-time Pop quintet to strut out solo and she aims big with debut single, ‘Expectations.’
A hypnotic hymn, the track is the first offering from the songbird since signing with new label Columbia Records – home of titans Beyonce and Adele.
Having premiered the song live while on tour this summer, the studio version is here and awaits your listening after the jump…
Stunning! Vocally and lyrically the song exceeds expectations.
It strikes a potent chord by packaging a layered narrative into a radio-ready roll and, in this regard, succeeds in the way songs by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Adele did and do.The single skews more soulful than Lauren’s Fifth Harmony output yet retains the group’s Pop sensibility by way of its catchy hook and memorable melody.
As first swings of the bat go, the 22-year-old has knocked it out of the park. And, let us tell it, she’s done so with a track that has landed on fertile ground with potential on multiple formats.
