Lauren Jauregui’s solo journey has officially begun. Starting from a few weeks ago, she began dropping cuts like “Scattered” featuring Vic Mensa and “Colors,” both of which are set to appear on her forthcoming debut EP titled "Prelude." The next offering from the project arrives with her newest single, “On Guard,” featuring 6lack. The R&B with beats that reference the trap talks about insecurity and the defensive way of acting at the beginning of relationships and some intuitive feelings that can change the perspective on someone. In a recent interview about her forthcoming "Prelude" project, Lauren got candid about her journey as a solo artist, filled with empowerment. “A lot of [artists] are moving in such a way where it’s so formulaic that you can assume how someone’s going to move,” she says. “I’m not trying to do that. This, to me, is another process of expanding as a businesswoman [and] as an artist. When you subject your art to being controlled by others, you lose the connection to why you do art in the first place.” Her feature on the track 6lack has been dishing out some other notable assists on tracks this year. He linked up with Lil Tjay for their successful collaboration “Calling My Phone,” he hopped on Melii’s “You Ain’t Worth It” and also joined Zoe Wees on her new single “That’s How It Goes.”
