American Idol season 15 runner-up La'Porsha Renae's highly anticipated debut album Already All Ready via Motown Records has arrived. The 13-track album, which features the top 10 Adult Contemporary single “Good Woman,” is available for purchase/stream online now.

Produced by Ne-Yo, Harmony "H-Money" Samuels and Edgar "JV" Etienne, Already All Ready showcases La’Porsha’s powerhouse and multi-faceted vocals with the energetic burst of “What Is Love,” “Breathe” and the funky, sassy, horn-driven title track, in which she asks, "Do you like it like that?"

“The album cover represents all of my past insecurities and everything I advocate for. I represent beautiful, full-figured women, single mothers and natural-haired women, and black lives,” the McComb, Mississippi, native tells Billboard of the album cover, which features her adorable daughter, Nayalee.

“The title Already All Ready was chosen because many of what I just named is not considered to be ideal or socially popular when describing a rising star,” she says. “I embraced everything that I thought would hold me back from pursuing my dreams and used my insecurities to give me the courage to inspire and advocate for others who possessed many of the same insecurities I had. I also wanted to honor single mothers and defy the stereotypical dress code of a thick, brown-skinned single mother and domestic violence survivor. I'm proud of my curves, my daughter, as well as the harsh past that helped shape me into the strong woman I am today.”

1. What Is Love
2. Good Woman
3. Somebody Does
4. Hideout
