Keke Palmer has unleashed her highly-anticipated visual EP, Lauren.
Over 16 minutes, the multi-faceted star delivers banger after banger through various moods and themes. From the opening scene, in which Keke encourages listeners to believe in themselves, Palmer sets the tone for an artistic journey that includes documentary-style vignettes.
“Doubtful” kicks things off with rain-filled, black-and-white scenes that are likely symbolic. “As much as I think I’m ready for love,” Keke recently told Rap-Up, “I’m ultimately not because I’m not ready to be vulnerable with somebody and really allow them to penetrate me.”
Moving forward with Lauren, “GMFU” is a hotel room spectacle featuring a hilarious foul-mouthed muppet named Cousin M. “Shawty, I’m a 22-year-old boss,” Palmer sings confidently. “Caught up in my fame / Want me to be the girlfriend / Not me.”
