American Idol alum La’Porsha Renae has announced her debut album, Already All Ready, will release on March 31 on 19 Recordings/Motown Records.
“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,” Renae said in a press release. “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.”
The album cover shows a beautiful photo of Renae and her daughter. “The album cover represents all of my past insecurities, and everything I advocate for. I represent beautiful, full figured women, single mothers and natural haired women, and black lives,” she explained.
Already All Ready will include the lead single “Good Woman,” as well as “What Is Love,” which was recently released. Fans can pre-order the album and get an instant download of “What Is Love,” the title track “Already All Ready” and the Ne-Yo penned and produced record “Somebody Does.”
