It looks like Keyshia Cole is ready to expand her artist horizons. The singer spoke to MTV News about her many musical aspirations and noted her desire to work with either Beyonce, Lady GaGa or Fergie on her next studio release.
While many might scoff at this idea, I welcome it. Cole has had tremendous success on the R&B formats and if she wishes to have longevity in this industry then she needs to try new things. Taking risks and experimenting with new sounds are key to growth.
However, I hope that she finds a suitable balance and doesn’t abandon her roots completely. We have seen Beyonce gradually transform into Pop artist in an attempt to garner mainstream success and although she has become a global superstar, fans of her R&B-based ‘Dangerously In Love’ debut LP remain disappointed.
