For one reason or another, R&B success stories have become few and far between in recent years, marred by the difficulty most of its acts convince their fans to follow their cause from many a comment section…and to iTunes.
Fortunately for Keyshia Cole, the run at the top she enjoyed with Ron Fair saw cultivate a fan base who’ve developed a culture of buying her music.
A culture, which saw first week sales of her latest album ‘Woman to Woman’ of 96,000 units- a figure out of reach for many an R&B staple. Now, with that album no more than 200,000 units from being certified Gold, it seems she has kicked off work on its follow up, enlisting an old friend to craft its material!
After watching the popularity of his own material rise this month, Hip Hop’s Elijah Blake took to Twitter this morning to share the following:
Day 1 w/my fam @KeyshiaCole . Striving for greatness is the objective. Got a great feeling about this go round

Hinting at the birth of a brand new studio album, his tweet comes one year after he penned ‘Woman’s lead single ‘Enough of no Love’ for her, watching it become one of the year’s fastest selling singles from her genre with 70,000 units sold.
If Keyshia is working on a new album, we can’t wait till hear what she cooks up.
Hopefully, in pulling from the themes addressed in her ‘Family First’ reality series, album #6 tells her story in ways we’ve never heard of it, flaunting heartfelt cuts akin to Pink‘s ‘Family Portrait‘ and R&B scented Pop singles in the vein of Mariah‘s ‘Don’t Forget About Us‘.
So, let us know…
