She’s the R&B royal whose critical acclaim and occasionally untapped commercial pull makes her the unsuspecting envy of many of a Urban hopeful.
So, perhaps in recognising his potential as one of the genre’s trendsetters, the year has seen Keyshia Cole lend her expertise in the field to Roc Nation’s Elijah Blake, with whom she collaborated with on her latest LP ‘Woman To Woman’ and has enlisted to produce its hotly anticipated follow up.
Now peep what the ‘I Changed My Mind’ singer had to say on Blake’s skill as a live act below…

For an artist as vocal as Keyshia Cole, much of 2013 has been uncharacteristically quiet – if discounting “that” Twitter duel with Destiny’s Child diva Michelle Williams at the top of the year.
However, the singer breaks the relative silence in a new interview with our friends over at True Exclusives.
Leaving no stone unturned, interviewer Silent grilled the singer on many a topic including the Williams feud, her mixtape and album, rumored marriage woes, reality TV return and much more.
A wholly insightful chat. Check it out after the jump…

Keyshia Cole‘s latest album ‘Woman To Woman’ finds itself resuscitated today, given a healthy dose of promotional fresh air with the release of its new video, ‘I Choose You‘.

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….

Michelle Williams has her eyes on a hit with her latest single ‘If We Had Your Eyes’.
As fans continue to praise the tune’s accompanying music video (which premiered earlier this week), the singer preps those well trained heels for an extensive promo campaign in support of the song and its parent album ‘Journey To Freedom’.
But before you can get your hands on ‘Journey’, tuck in below to see Michelle’s sitdown with our bud Marc Lamont Hill over at HuffPost Live. There the ‘We Break the Dawn’ songstress broke news on her new single, shared her thoughts on Miley Cyrus‘ MTV twerk-tastrophe, and so much more.

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!

If you thought Keyshia Cole‘s ‘Woman To Woman’ era was nearing its close, you thought wrong.
Despite the album nearing it’s 1st year anniversary, Cole is still readying new singles to be lifted from the album – namely the slow jam ‘I Choose You’ (which she confirmed in early July would indeed succeed October 2012′s ‘Trust and Believe’ to act as ‘Woman’s third single).
Following yesterday with the announcement of its accompanying visual…
…fans were thrilled to learn that the new video won’t be the only place they can expect to see the ‘Heaven Sent’ hitmaker in coming weeks. For, not even two months after wrapping up her worldwide ‘Woman To Woman’ trek, Cole will reportedly headline another tour as revealed by ‘Rebellious Soul’ songstress K. Michelle today via an interview with Hot 97.

Fergie, Anita Baker, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, Justin Timberlake.
First mention of the aforementioned names usually evoke memories of some of the past two decades’ top pop hits. However, as our list below details, even some of music’s most prized acts have hit their fair share of sour notes.
Every year on U.S. ‘Independence Day’ the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Beyonce are oft-praised for their awe-inspiring renditions of the U.S. national anthem ‘The Star Spangled Banner’, while other renditions of the historical number will go down in history for some less flattering reasons.
Forgotten words, bum notes, and all around embarrassment await below. See our top 10 list of the “best of the worst” ‘Star Spangled Banner’ performances and weigh in:
