IN MY EARS: KEKE PALMER - LAUREN

LAUREN (VISUAL EP)

I’ll be short. Keke ‘The Gag Is’ Palmer is homegirl. She and I were born in the same year 1993 despite the fact that I’ll be turning 24 before her. Having grown up at around exactly the time she was growing up and becoming famous, I never always liked her. From Madea, True Jackson and Akeelah and The bee’s days I thought the chick was mad annoying. As we both came into our own that annoyance was replaced with immense admiration. Funny how life works. I admire her for her courage, bravery, confidence and undoubted talent. This admiration was set in stone with her independent and most listened to single to date ‘I Don’t Belong to You’. You know the one man. The one she and Cassie kissed in? Yeah, it same one (See below).

Well, now let me introduce you to Lauren. Brought to you in part by the lovely people at Island Records; ‘Lauren’ is a self titled ‘Visual Ep’ and Keke’’s latest work. With Lead single ‘Hands Free’ joining the band of tropical vibed records out there and holding its own, It’s one of my favorites from the Ep, followed closely by ‘Pressure’. Take a look-listen and let me know what you think!
