After much anticipation, KeKe Palmer drops the visual EP Lauren, a five-track project, accompanied by an intriguing visual story.
Named after her real first name, the EP Lauren is a project that’s true to Palmer. “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,” she told Billboard.
The 16-minute clip goes through each song, each with unique visuals of their own and a clip of the creative process behind each song. You’ll see KeKe in ballad mode, party mode, chillin’ around the way, and in bosstress mode. She raps and sings on the project, which sonically features R&B-meets-trap-soul tracks.
