Keke Palmer is showing off her singing chops. The star delivered an impressive rendition of Dua Lipa’s monster hit “Don’t Start Now” set to the music from Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” for an episode of Jimmy Fallon’s music game show, “That’s My Jam,” and it left Fallon speechless. “That was unbelievable!” the talk show host shouts in the clip released on Thursday after Palmer finishes, demanding a standing ovation from the audience as fellow guests Saweetie and Will.i.am look on in awe.
It’s been a big year for Palmer, who welcomed her first child, a baby boy named Leodis Andrellton Jackson, on Feb. 25. She also launched her own TV network, KeyTV, in November 2022, and has since produced shows such as “Heaux & Tell.” She also made her directorial debut with a short film called “Big Boss,” which chronicles her experiences in the music industry, on March 24.
While she’s best known for her acting, Palmer has tons of musical experience. She signed a record deal with Atlantic Records in 2005 and released her first studio album in 2007. She’s also been steadily dropping music over the years and most recently dropped a single called “Standards” on March 24 in conjunction with her short film.
The episode of “That’s My Jam” featuring Palmer will air April 4. Watch the cover above.
