Keke Palmer has got to be the hardest working 20-something in show business and I love it! The 21-year old actress just inked a deal with Island Records alongside her Scream Queens co-star Nick Jonas. According to Page Six:
The former child star’s rep confirmed that Island President David Massey signed Palmer recently and she’s already in the studio working on new music. Palmer will kick off her new deal by hosting the label’s Island Life all-star concert at Best Buy Theater in September, to feature performances by Jonas, Shawn Mendes, Kiesza and Timeflies.
She’s expected to release her first single this fall. This isn’t Keke’s first time dabbling in music. In 2007, she released her first album, So Uncool. Although her debut received a positive review, it did not perform well on the Billboard charts. She also released mixtapes including Awaken (2011), Awaken Reloaded (2011) and Keke Palmer (2012).
