R&B chanteuse Keyshia Cole stopped by BET’s 106 & Park yesterday to plug her comeback single ‘Enough of No Love’.
During Cole’s candid chat with departing host Terrence J, she dished on marriage, motherhood, and re-embracing music. The latter provided the most insightful aspect of the interview; for the 30 year old deemed the”happier tone” of her last album, ‘Calling All Hearts’, as a musical misstep of sorts – crediting her fans for reminding her what they want from her.

Granted experimentation is key for artistic growth, survival in the music industry is often a case of knowing your strongest card and playing it until the end. It’s a practice Mary J. Blige is well-versed in, and one Ms. Cole seems to now understand too. Although, it must be said, the so-so performance of ‘Hearts’ was less an issue with the “happier” subject matter. It simply wasn’t a good album.
Here’s hoping her latest effort ‘Woman To Woman’ remedies that when it arrives this Fall. Because Keyshia gets it “right”, ala her still hot debut, she is a formidable force.
