Keke Palmer has proven herself time and time again to be a multi-talented individual. She excels in singing, acting, and dancing. Keke rose to fame as the lead of the Nickelodeon show, True Jackson, VP, and has since garnered an Emmy Award for her acting skills. Her career has seen her take on significant roles in movies and TV shows, like her critically-lauded turn in Jordan Peele’s Nope. As time has gone on, Keke has managed to carve out a special place for herself in the industry. Even with her reputation as a living meme, she is taken very seriously as an actress and an artist. That kind of balance is not something just anyone can strike.
Keke Palmer’s fans have eagerly anticipated her project, Big Boss, for quite some time. The new effort is based on her personal experiences, drawing from her career as an actress and a singer. The album is accompanied by a 40-minute film. It features scenes inspired by Keke’s personal life. It is both entertaining and emotional – a perfect companion to the album, which can be described using the same adjectives.

Keke Palmer’s Big Boss opens strong with the track “Views.” On it, she sings about wondering if someone sees her in the same way she sees him. “I’m just tryna view,” she croons. “If you see me in the same light as you.” The album has very few low points, if any. The songs are as catchy as they come, too. “Love Language” is exactly the kind of R&B-Pop crossover that the summer needs. The album is impressive. Furthermore, Keke’s writing, direction, and performance in the Big Boss film only cement her status as an iconic, multi-faceted artist.
In the film, Keke takes on the male-dominated music industry and points out problems that are still very real for women in 2023. A music producer character in the film says, “They always want some sh*t, but they don’t wanna give some sh*t.” Of course, he is suggesting that women must sleep with him for the “honor” of having him produce their song. Around the halfway point, Keke reflects on interactions like this. “Silly me,” she narrates. “For thinking they would ever f*ck with me just off of the strength of my talent.” It’s a sobering scene that shows just how much the singer has had to deal with. Thankfully, she has come out on the other side stronger for it and producing great art like Big Boss and its accompanying film. What do you think of Keke Palmer’s new album?
