American Idol season 15 runner-up La’Porsha Renae revives her debut album, Already All Ready, by releasing a lyric video for the latest single and title track. In the clip, the powerful vocals and inspirational lyrics are animated on a football field, possibly paying homage to the current injustice protest by some NFL players.
The album features production from Ne-Yo, Harmony Samuels, Edgar “JV” Etienne, and more and showcases La’Porsha’s powerhouse and multi-faceted vocals through genre-blending tracks.
“I represent beautiful, full-figured women, single mothers and natural haired women, and black lives,” says La’Porsha in regards to the album. “The title Already All Ready was chosen because many of what I just named is not considered to be ideal or socially popular when describing a rising star. I embraced everything that I thought would hold me back from pursuing my dreams, and used my insecurities to give me the courage to inspire and advocate for others who possessed many of the same insecurities I had. I also wanted to honor single mothers and defy the stereotypical dress code of a thick, brown-skinned, single mother and domestic violence survivor. I’m proud of my curves, my daughter, as well as the harsh past that helped shape me into the strong woman I am today.”
