Four years removed from her well-received set ‘Woman to Woman’Keyshia Cole sets her sights on a new musical chapter with the release of her new album.
No longer signed to Interscope, the R&B singer/songwriter has been hard at work on a new project following the unveiling of the Hip-Hop leaning effort ‘Point of No Return’ which stood as her last project to be released under her agreement with the label.
How time and life’s lessons have changed her since then?
Listen to a snippet pulled from the project to find out below…
Keyshia Cole‘s time at Interscope came to an end following the release of her Hip-Hop kissed set ‘Point of No Return.’
Since then, the gifted entertainer has vowed to continue her career as an independent artist and, before the release of her first label-less album, seems to have secured the support of the boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.

After her last album ‘Point of No Return’ lived up to its title on the Billboard 200, ‘Heaven Sent’ songbird Keyshia Cole is undoubtedly looking to regain R&B prominence with her 7th official release.
With buzz around the project already brewing after rumors swirled the singer was signing to Columbia Records, Cole took to Instagram to turn the heat up on said buzz by announcing its official first single.
Since the onset of Keyshia Cole‘s career, comparisons to Mary J. Blige have been a constant. Indeed, so rife has the chatter been that it birthed rumors of a rift between the R&B staples.
The climate wasn’t altogether helped when Cole said the following about “her idol” in a 2012 interview:
“I’m very happy to have been compared to such a wonderful woman, a strong woman. The only thing that I would’ve changed, that I am now here to do for those that come after me, is to lend a helping hand. I feel that even if it’s not me saying I’m gonna record with you, I’m gonna work with you or let’s go hang out or anything like that; we don’t have to be friends, but at the end of the day, being able to give advice or help somebody that is coming under you is an amazing gift to be able to have. I wish I would have had that from Mary, but I’m not Mary, I’m a different person and if K. Michelle ever call me or anybody for that matter, for advice, I would absolutely give it to them.”
Nonetheless, proving that there’s no bad blood, Keyshia and the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul caught up backstage at a concert last night.
Clearly touched by the encounter (said to be their first), Cole captioned the snap:
It’ll take more than being hard at work on a new album to stop Keyshia Cole from catching up friends.
Just ask Remy Ma, with whom she celebrated her birthday days ago.
Snapped enjoying each other’s company months after the ‘Conceited‘ rapper’s prison release the ladies flaunted their friendship on social media as Cole continues work on her first independent album and Remy gears up to star in the New York arm of the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ body.
