In other Tiffany endeavors, the Girls Trip actress previously discussed her plans to drop an album. After receiving a Grammy nomination for her The Last Unicorn audiobook, it inspired her to do even more with her vocals.
“It really inspired me. Like, ‘Wow if I can [get] nominated for a Grammy for telling my truth, what can I get if I really just apply myself and my vocal skills?’” she explained. The star already has working titles in mind based on her successful comedy tour. “It will probably be the ‘She Ready’ album or ‘The She Ready Experience’ or ‘The We Ready Album.'”
