Keyshia Cole Announces New Management

Published: Wednesday 3rd Aug 2011 by Rashad

R&B diva Keyshia Cole‘s career seems to be steadily on the up-and-up.  For, while currently on tour, announcing the filming of a new reality show, and a movie in the works, the ‘I Changed My Mind’ singer has now revealed she is under new management:

This is clearly the step Mrs. Gibson needs to take given her past commercial failures (see: ‘Calling All Hearts’) as  Kevin Liles, former Def Jam president and EVP of Warner Music Group, has been an instrumental force behind the success of some of Urban Pop’s biggest names (Jay Z, Kanye West, Ashanti, etc).  Most recently he was cited as the branding force that helped place Trey Songz on the global market.    And, if Liles managed to put Trigga on the map, he could certainly do wonders for someone who can actually sing Cole.

  2. Steffon\ August 3, 2011

    Manny was a great manager to KC obviously it was some other DRAMA that went down. I don’t think this will change anything but will see what happens

  3. Reach August 3, 2011

    keyshia is amazing……Calling all hearts was lame but her past albums were amazing….deffo underrated.

    can’t wait for her next album.

    So happy for Keyshia Cole i absolutely adore her !!! You definitely hear and see the growth in her as a woman & i wish her nothing but prosperity and success!! Im glad she has new management and i hope she could take her career into an even more positive direction!! sn: i hope she’s still cool with Manny though you shouldn’t burn bridges

  6. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 3, 2011

    She is really hungry about her career, but honestly, I am yet to understand what her place in the industry is.I don’t think that she has something truly special to offer and, sorry for being harsh, but with so many EXTREMELY talented artists with a vision out there, it seems almost unfair that she’s getting all those new managers.

  13. TheMan4u August 3, 2011

    folks shouldn’t act as if Manny ruined her career, he made her into the star she had become, he wasnt just a manager he was a friend, brother and looked out for her entire family, let’s hope her new management has that same type of commitment

  14. mark ginnis August 3, 2011

    From what I saw she picks her music. She went with the Nicki minaj single . I wish her well though.

  15. THE ICONIC LACEFRONCE. August 3, 2011

    Career on the up and up ? LMAOOOOOOOOOOO

  16. Dane August 3, 2011

    ..aite, this is great news for her…i hope she bounces back well.. 🙂

  17. MuzikJunkie August 3, 2011

    Hopefully she can deliver this time, because I couldn’t get into Calling All Hearts! But this should be a really good move for her Good Luck Keyshia!

  18. truthis August 3, 2011

    Wish her Luck but keyshia voice just doesnt move me ESPECIALLY whe she sings live…Lord i wanna put cotton in my ears…oh well but she hustling!!

  19. Tristan August 3, 2011

    I beg to differ about the statement where Keyshia Cole can sing better than Trey Songz. Neither are that great of singer’s. They just happen to put out some listenable R&B cuts, but I do wih Keyshia the best. Hopefully, she’ll go back to her ‘hood’ roots and put out something along the lines of ‘The Way It Is’ and ‘Just Like You’.

  20. Rosie August 3, 2011

    she’s a flop! she just needs to stick with R&B and not go Pop she will make herself look bad if she goes that direction.

  21. Jasmine August 3, 2011

    Signing to Kevin Liles only means that she is going to have random leaked tracks floating around the internet and when her next album comes out all the tracks will have leakes months before lease. That is what he does and the moron also emails artists tracks out to random music execs knowing that the tracks will just leak. Ever since Keyshia got a breast reduction her attitude went from ghetto to straight up weird and conceited.

  46. Tiina August 3, 2011

    @ RIHANNA IS THE BEST! YOU WILL DEAL

    All of Kim’s studio albums are atleast a certified platinum with her last album gaining a 5 MIC RATING being the ONLY FEMALE RAPPER to do that. #QUEENOFRAP

    Oh and I bet those mixtapes made more dough than you’ve seen in your life time. #LOL

    Face it, Kim is one of the few female artists who have a devoted fanbase like Beyonce, Monica and Missy to name a few,

  47. nice_gurl August 4, 2011

    This is exactly what she needs. Now she just needs to release some great material.

  48. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 4, 2011

    @Tina we’re not comparing her to me, fool! We’re comparing her to other rap artist and *cough* black friday was a fail from her previous stuff. She flopped this era. Get over it. Nicki won. Kim will win next round if she tries.

  49. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 4, 2011

    No one was talking about her fanbase. We’re talking about flopping. None of her material for black friday was original or of the highest quality production. It was garbage covers. A rap artists should be able to create his her own stuff esp considering how long kim has been in the game. None of her other rap peers are making mixtapes that have been out as long as her. All I heard on black friday was kim rapping over ppl’s beats. The only original song on there was black friday which was ghostwritten and clap clap. The rest were covers. Now she’ signing cuz that’s the only way to bring attention to mainstream. She’s desperate to have her spotlight again cuz nicki took it from her. And u can say what you want about nicki but the woman puts business before anything that’s y she’s successful. Kim flopped worrying about her counterparts than putting music out. Black friday was a joke. Most of the reviews gave it a low rating. She flopped. And probably lied about her paypal sales.

  50. Jay August 4, 2011

    SHE HAS ONE FAILURE…. NOT FAILURES… She’s was progressing very nicely until that last CD. I hope she brings back that fire… personally I loved that “A Different Me” CD…hot from start to finish!
