It’s been an interesting 8 months for a certain outspoken ‘Heaven Sent’ hitmaker named Keyshia Cole.
Indeed, the songstress has been embroiled in a series of attacks (sent from everywhere but Heaven) from fans of former Destiny’s Child members Beyonce and Michelle Williams for her comments regarding the divas – namely the latter who she notoriously slammed for her participation in the 2013 Superbowl half-time show.
Williams, who is ramping up promotion for her forthcoming 4th album ‘Journey To Freedom’, recently called for a “woman-to-woman” chat with Cole to discuss the reasons behind the initial attack. While her first response to the invitation wasn’t welcoming, today saw the “I Changed My Mind” maestra take to Twitter to say:
The apology was accompanied by one final plea from Cole, however….
No response from Michelle as of time reporting.
Bravo to Keyshia for taking this long overdue step. For, while the comments don’t seem to have done too much to hurt sales of her latest ‘Woman To Woman’ nor attendance of or interest in its accompanying tours (one past, one upcoming), that does not take away from the incredible damage it has done to her brand.
A “damage”, so to speak, that has been accompanied by a host of other Twitter-catalyzed scandals involving Cole versus (insert anyone’s name here). A shame considering that Cole continues to shine as one of R&B’s most consistent sellers.
Here’s hoping that whatever Wiliams’ response is, if any, lays to rest any beef between the two and will help repair their reportedly once well relationship. Let’s make this story history ladies and, like Cole herself once prescribed, just “let it go”.
