She spoke to Billboard saying, “I shot this type of video because I wanted to show children that their dreams are attainable. They are special and their uniqueness should be nurtured into something amazing!”
“Already All Ready” is the title track from La’Porsha’s 13-track debut album, released on March 31, 2017, and features the hit single “Good Woman,” which entered the top 10 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart.
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.”
