New Music: Keke Palmer – ‘Dance Alone’

Dance Alone

Keke Palmer has her eye on the prize on “Dance Alone,” the second release from her self-titled mixtape. The 18-year-old singer-actress tries to convince a guy to dance with her on the flirty drum-patterned track, produced by Harmony “HMoney” Samuels and co-written by Edwin “Lil Eddie” Serrano.

“The song is saying I’m trying to get this guy, I don’t want to dance alone, come dance with me,” explained Keke. “It has a bit of an influence of ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ by Michael Jackson. The song has a very masculine feel to it, so I thought it was important to capture that visually in my dance moves and in the way that I look, yet still finding a way to be feminine. It’s me chasing this guy who isn’t totally feeling me, so it’s kind of like I’m trying to feel him out and show him how I am to get him to come dance with me.”

The music video is set to premiere on August 27. Go behind the scenes below.

    @Shaytan, Girl Please!!! Her ass needs to SIT!!! She is a wanna be Aaliyah if anything. She looks like an undercover lesb*an to be honest. And her acting STINKS!! Maybe she should do stage plays.

    @Lexy5555, EXACTLY! They are clearly hating. That girl has accomplished more than they probably ever would & she’s JUST turning 19. Let’s be real now! The song is a dope record, nonetheless!

    Likin’ this track, but team CiCi needs to get it together ’cause this girl’s coming for your spot!!!

  9. Brenden

    This song would have suited Ciara’s voice much better. Keke’s voice sounds a little premature..

    @Brenden, I love Ciara, but I feel that Keke has a stronger voice.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SONG! I feel like KeKe is SO underrated as a singer.

  15. Kyle

    I feel if she just focused on music and took awhile to craft a solid R&B album she could be big. I’ve always liked her voice and she is gorgeous!
