The wait is over for Lauren Jauregui’s debut solo album…
The 25-year-old Cuban American singer and former Fifth Harmony member has released Prelude, her long-awaited official debut solo project.
Prelude shows a side of Jauregui that fans have only ever gotten to see a glimpse of.
The seven deeply personal tracks follow the star as she deals with losing someone she loves (“Colors“), confronting herself in the wake of said loss (“Scattered“), and putting herself on the defense as she re-enters the world (“On Guard“).
Prelude is a re-introduction to Jauregui as a new artist, ready to make you want to cry, dance and think all at the same time.
“This is truly my child. I’m continuing to change. These songs mean a lot to me and speak to a very real part of myself I’ve been working on,” Jauregui says of the project in a statement. “They feel good. I’ve sat with them. I’m comfortable with them … I found out what I sonically wanted to say. It was a beautiful process to understand I have my own voice as an artist. 2021 Lauren is a whole new bitch.”
