Scream Queens star Keke Palmer returns to music with her visual album for Lauren, which dropped on Friday. From tracks like “Doubtful” to “Got Me F—ed Up” to “Hands Free,” she bares her vulnerability, while channeling her inner goddess.
“I want you to get to know me because I want you to understand where I’m coming from,” she says before seguing into her song “Doubtful.” “The song is showcasing my vulnerability of unrequited love, you know what I mean? Where I’ve been in the position where I thought I loved somebody so much to the point where I really wanted to hate this motherf—er, if that meant we could have some kind of consistent charge of energy.”
The visual album features five tracks, including “Jealous” and “Pressure,” while rapper Dreezy features on “Got Me F—ed Up.”
Speaking with PEOPLE of the album, she explained, “[Lauren is] my birth name, Keke is a nickname. After creating the EP, I came to the conclusion that [Lauren] would be the best title for it. This is about a girl that you don’t know outside of the perfection of my fame and my popularity. This is a girl from Chicago, this is the foundation of who Keke is. So I wanted to introduce you to her.”
