However with a New Year on the horizon, so too is new opportunity for the R&B belter.
Redemption, it seems, has manifested for her in the form of a brand new record deal with LA Reid‘s Epic Records.
Announcing the news on Instagram, Cole shared the following post and video…

The deal comes after she told That Grape Juice that she was seriously weighing up going indie after the underperformance of 2014’s ‘Point Of No Return.‘ A set that fulfilled her deal with then-label Interscope.
As for the new venture… congrats!
Say what folk will, but there’s no denying Keyshia has a proven track record and ample potential. And it appears there’s still some mileage in her career tank.
We’re buzzed for new her material. Are you?
