The song premiered yesterday on Complex, commenting “If you haven’t heard of Lauren Sanderson, now’s the time to get acquainted.” “Written in the Stars” serves as the perfect introduction to the world of the alternative-R&B-hip-hop temptress. Her smoky intonation entwines with a minimalist beat punctuated by finger-snaps and soulful harmonies before Philly rapper and singer PnB Rock turns up with an entrancing verse of his own. 22-year-old Ft. Wayne, Indiana native Sanderson seamlessly switches from confessional bars into a hypnotic hook that’s as provocative as it is poetic.
Additionally, it marks her formal Epic Records debut, announcing her arrival as the label’s latest powerhouse new voice.
These stories just don’t happen on their own—somebody makes them happen through blood, sweat, tears, and dreams. Completely self-made, the songstress quietly cooked up her self-released EP Spaces in 2017. Upon release, it captured #1 on iTunes Top R&B Albums Chart with no traditional promotion. Additionally, singles like “Fake Love” and “Anyone”[feat. Former Vandal] would both crack the 1 million mark on Spotify. Last year, she independently routed, scheduled, and booked an 18-city tour. Resonating within the hearts and minds of a diehard audience, she not only has amassed over 200K cumulative social followers, but she also often pens letters by hand for them.
With her full-length major label debut on the way, success seems “Written in the Stars” for Sanderson.
