David Becker/Getty Images via ABCKeke Palmer is getting “Bossy” with her latest career moves, particularly when it comes to her forthcoming album, titled The Boss, and Big Boss Entertainment label.
She tells Billboard that she “didn’t really think about how dope” her newest single, “Bossy,” was “going to sound because I recorded very quickly.”
Keke adds, “It’s kind of a raspy song. Once we finished it, I listened and as soon as I heard that, ‘Gucci on my booty/Poppin like a toolie,’ I was like, ‘That’s something crazy, we got to bring that back.'”
The Star actress has also become the boss of her own label, Big Boss Entertainment.
She says that the decision to create it was “about empowering myself” after years of working in the music industry since she was 12 years old.
“I always felt exploited. It really depressed me for a while as an artist,” she explains.
“Big Boss Entertainment and my label is just another part of me trying something new. I want to empower my peers, so they also feel they’re not a part of the old way of doing things and be a part of the big bosses. Big Boss is about me helping expand and using what I know.”
She continues, “I’m not always going to be Keke Palmer the entertainer, but it’s meant for me to get outside and move to the forefront. That’s what I’m building towards.”
Keke Palmer’s new album, The Boss, is expected to arrive later this year.
