Debuting on Billboard yesterday, Singer/Actress KeKe Palmer released a 15-min. visual EP Lauren, which is named after her real birth name.
Lauren features a 5-track project accompanied with a visual for each track. Keke shows different sides of herself ranging from her emotional ballad vibe in the opening, then turning it up on “Got Me F–ked Up” and “Hands Free,” where we see a multi-talent KeKe partying and dancing within the different scenes.
She told Billboard: Because I feel like it helps keep in mind what this whole EP is about, which is giving an entrance into who I am truly, like where I come from, how my career as Keke Palmer began. Keke, of course, is a family nickname. Everything attached to it — being my entertainment name, I feel like are often so separate from the totality of who I am because so much of my early career was based off of acting and my characters. Of course, I’m not my characters and so for my EP, I felt like because this is them getting to see it through the true me, where I’m coming from and how I’m feeling, I feel like it was perfect to title it my birth name Lauren.
