Come Listen! KeKe Palmer Uncovers Unreleased Album, ‘Waited To Exhale’

As fans await her Island Records album, KeKe Palmer dusts off the vault and unleashes some unreleased music!

Titled Waited To Exhale, the album was recorded in 2010 when she was just 16 years old, but she named the collection of songs recently as a testament of how far she’s come.

“I chose to title it that after all these years because it was my anxiety and depression that stopped me from investing in myself,” she explained. “I thought I was a failure because I didn’t fit into any of the boxes that my label wanted for me to fit in. I’ve always been an individual, but I wasn’t always proud. However I am now exalted in my truth and it is more therapeutic for me than you know to finally release this from my heart. I love you all!!”

“This is sixteen yr old Keke saying she’s not afraid anymore. My unreleased album,” she tweeted.
