Lauren Jauregui Sizzles In Sexy ‘Playboy’ Shoot, Talks Solo Career

Lauren & Steve Aoki's 'All Night' Video
Lauren Jauregui and superstar DJ Steve Aoki join forces for sexy banger 'All Night.'

Lauren Jauregui celebrates the start of her solo career with a sexy photoshoot for Playboy. The Fifth Harmony superstar posed for a spread with the iconic publication a week after the girls announced they were going on an indefinite hiatus in order to pursue individual projects. Released yesterday (March 26), she is a whimsical vision in the series of photos. Shot by Ali Mitton, the 21-year-old delivers passionate stares in a romantic garden, poses with a blush rose and compliments some lacy black lingerie with a denim jacket.

In the accompanying interview, Lauren dropped some hints about what to expect from her solo music. Although she remained purposefully vague about a release schedule, the rising vocalist explained that her ideal sound will be different from the pristine pop 5H popularized. Citing electronica, pop, rock, alt-rock and Latin music as inspirations, the end goal is to bring her own sound to life. Similar to former group member, Camila Cabello, that will likely entail paying tribute to her Cuban heritage.

One thing that is clear is that the outspoken musician intends to use her music to spark conversations and encourage change in the world. “It’s so crazy how little people know about what they can do, about their rights, what they’re putting into their bodies and everything that’s going on globally,” Lauren mused. “I believe that art is the core of what starts revolutions.”

Things are seriously heating up for the budding pop star. Lauren announced plans to accompany Halsey on the Latin American leg of her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom Tour this June. She is also finding love with her Steve Aoki club collaboration, “All Night.” With any luck we will get another taste of new music soon.
