R&B star Keyshia Cole has hit the promotional trail for new single ‘Long Way Down’, moments ago performing the song on the Tonight With Jay Leno Show.
With an album a mere weeks away from release (and a lukewarmly received lead single in ‘I Ain’t Thru’ to boot), the new mother needs to ensure she nails every promotional spot she hits. Check out how she fared after the jump…
Following a somewhat shaky start, Cole found her wings to soar vocally during the performance.
That said, the roughness that used to be part of her appeal, now has her trailing behind her peers when it comes to working the stage and image. Put simply, the 29 year old looked like she walked on stage enroute from the mall or bus-stop. Not much in the way of finesse or polish. By no means the biggest of issues for the talented star; yet (unfortunately) being in such an image driven industry paired with the fact that this is her 4th studio album, one can’t be blamed for anticipating a better overall output from Cole.
Cole’s ‘Calling All Hearts’ album hits stores on December 21st.
