New Song: Keyshia Cole – ‘Rick James (ft. Juicy J)’

Published: Wednesday 19th Mar 2014 by Sam

After a brief spell out of the spotlight, Keyshia Cole is back with new single ‘Rick James’.

Juicy J joins the R&B belter on the gritty mid-tempo, which serves as the lead release from Cole’s upcoming new album.

So what are you waiting for? Take a listen below…

More of a grower than an instant hit, the cut’s chorus is oddly infectious and cemented itself in our heads on first play. Which, in such a competitive climate, is all but a necessity.

Your thoughts?

    NOPE…this song is a hot certified mess
    Like the track but her singing and lyrical
    content in it is Horrid!!!!

  2. KD 4 LIFE March 19, 2014

    Don’t really like it. I always expect more from K because she has such a good voice. I think the beat is throwin’ me off.

  3. ROSEGOLD March 19, 2014

    No maam. This is crap. Who OK’d this?

  4. TurntUp4Cici March 19, 2014

    I hate it.

    • CiciFinnaBeABride March 19, 2014

      Like you hate brushing your teeth. #SmellyMouth

  7. BeyWhoUWanna March 19, 2014

    Wanted to hate it but the ‘slap a b****’ part has me going ham in my room right now.

  8. @draejerome March 19, 2014

    Obviously… her label gave her too much creative control. cause this is a mess.

    her music is usually so much better
    disappointed fan

  9. TamartiansUnite March 19, 2014

    The video better snatch and slay because I am catching my ENTIRE life from this.

  10. Keyshia Del Rey March 19, 2014

    This is the first single? No Keyshia, it’s a hot a** song but you know this ain’t nobody’s first single.

  11. AubreyOSlay March 19, 2014

    The other single she’s putting out today better the business.

  12. ItsCheryl2Bh March 19, 2014

    I’m here for it.

  13. Tamartian#1 March 19, 2014

    No. This sounds like a ratchet K Michelle song. This will flop

    • BeySting March 19, 2014

      Rather ratchet K Michelle than fraudulent Tamar.

      • Tamartian#1 March 19, 2014

        A Beyonce fan calling someone fraudulent…..

      • anonymous March 19, 2014

        I’d rather hear Tamar than K Michelle’s ratchet garbage.

  14. Ricky March 19, 2014

    ***Flawless > This trash.

    Nice try hoodrat

    • VisionofMimi March 19, 2014

      This is about getting over a break up, what is Bow Down about?

  15. Antonio March 19, 2014

    Keyshia, baby gurl, this song is not it. As a big a fan who’s bought 3/5 albums, this song just does not do it for me. Hopefully, the other song is better.

  16. BanjeeRiri March 19, 2014

    Please, not the Beyhive thinking their opinion matters. The only power you have is on the internet b******. You couldn’t stop Keri from getting a 2x platinum single and you won’t stop Keyshia from slaying with this song.

  17. Woman2Woman March 19, 2014

    Can the Tamar fans worry about the fact that Tamar’s new album still isn’t Gold after all that hype. Please and thank you.

  18. Draggin4MrsCarter March 19, 2014

    Not as good as I wanted it to be but i’ll still buy it because homegirl is talented.

  19. Tamartian#1 March 19, 2014

    It sold more then Keyshia last album b****

  20. Truth March 19, 2014

    She needs a fan to sit in the studio with her and tell her the TRUTH that this ish she puttin out is wack I swear it’s like she wants to fail!!!! she shoulda went with the songs she previewed on her Instagram!!!

  21. Tamartian#1 March 19, 2014

    Keyshia wish she could sing like Tamar b****

    • BeyBeyKing March 19, 2014

      Wishes she could sound like a goat being finger f***** by Edward Scissorhands? Doubt it.

    • Keri Krew Kween March 19, 2014

      Lol Keyshia Cole is a way better singer then Tamar with much better stage presence. Don’t let hate blind you.

  22. Yazmine March 19, 2014

    This is horrible

  23. 2bad2bme March 19, 2014

    I agree that the Beyhive makes Beyonce look thirsty. they irritate me! I call my self simply a Beyonce fan. them geeks don’t represent me.

    • RancorNV March 19, 2014

      Off-topic. Take that s*** somewhere else.

      • 2bad2bme March 19, 2014

        no it’s not off topic…no one cares about this fish. this is a free style post

  24. MadameBeyBey March 19, 2014

    Excuse me, I may not be entirely here for Keyshia but I can’t Buy Your Own Braxtons fans sit here and talk mess about someone who actually HUSTLED to get to where they are.

    If you don’t know I’ll be the one to tell you that your fave can’t do anything unless someone is doing it for where. When she wanted a TV show, Toni had to be in it for the network to agree to film it. When she wanted a music career, she depended on Vince to sign her and take complete care of her career and when she’s in the studio depends on producer to edit her vocals.

    That’s why she’s NEVER given a half decent live performance before she cannot do anything by herself and CANNOT sing live.

    The nerve of you to talk trash about Keyshia when she actually puts 100% into everything she does and had to overcome so much just to get to where she is right now.

    Dont @ me.

  25. KatyKadet March 19, 2014

    Wait a moment? Tamar better than Keyshia? Girl stop.

  26. HistoRih March 19, 2014

    Why are the Beyhive defending Keyshia when they should be worried about XO flopping.

    • Lana Del Slay March 19, 2014

      Why are you worried about XO when they still haven’t found a cure for h*****?

      • Its Gaga Ya Bish March 19, 2014

        Why are you worried about h***** when Lana’s Grammys are nowhere to be seen.

  27. eric March 19, 2014

    The beat is mostly ok, but the vocal arrangement and lyrics are not so good. The whole “I’m Rick James” thing is super dry.

  28. Penny March 19, 2014

    That’s my favorite part of the song too lol

  29. Imbadbad March 19, 2014

    slap a b**** like rick james lol, the song is coo, more of a rihanna type of song tho

  30. FAF March 19, 2014

    hahahaha yaaaaaaaaaaaazzz I can see riding out to this during spring break. and it seems like it comes from a REAL place (daniel)

  31. adina March 19, 2014

    love kyeshia but i’m not a fan. And no one is more rachet than tamar ghetto ass.

  32. adina March 19, 2014

    Tamar is wack,!

  33. Stephy Tha Lambily March 19, 2014

    Todays music is TERRIBLE!

    Everyone from Mariah, Beyonce & Keyshia is releasing TRASH!

  34. Stephy Tha Lambily March 19, 2014

    Can we even call this s*** music?

  35. Navy Nick March 19, 2014

    it’s ok, I am sure her album will be aiite, like the past have been, it’s just ok tho!

  36. OrangeJuiceInstead March 19, 2014

    I Was just expecting more… Still got love for Keyshia, But I really was hoping for more.

  37. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    I dont like this s*** either

  38. Ajanni March 19, 2014

    Now I put this mess in my Bose speakers for maximum effect and no this is NOT a hit. The lyrics, the arrangement, and the whole Keyshia Cole experience is just a no. Just turrible *Charles Barkley voice*

  39. GREEKGOD March 19, 2014

    LMAOOO ” this is a freestyle post “

  40. GREEKGOD March 19, 2014

    This is a flop.

  41. Max March 19, 2014

    I’m not hating on this song at all, but here’s my concern: Did she clear this with the family/estate of Rick James? I would hate for Keyshia to have to deal with backlash from Rick James’ family.

  42. Max March 19, 2014

    My concern is this: Did she clear this with the family/estate of Rick James? I would hate for Keyshia to have to deal with backlash (and maybe a lawsuit) from Rick James’ family. I hope I didn’t speak that into existence.

  43. Keith March 19, 2014

    Hopefully there will be some backlash for this garbage. Keyshia should be above this kind of music but unlike others who ACT ghetto, this is who Keyshia IS. No ma’am to this record…Many of today’s singers need to get their “grown woman” on. This is tragic….

  44. Tami Roman Beer Bottle Hidden Under Shaunnie Sofa March 20, 2014

    Keeping it real people scream that KMichelle is a wanna be Keyshia Cole yet every snippet remix and or mixtape song is giving nothing but K Michelle brand of ratchet & blues which i love from K Michelle it seems like K has been out making a name for herself Keyshia seems to be the one slowly but surely mimicking her

  45. cocobutta March 20, 2014

    Creative concept with the Rick James “slap a bish like Rick James” BUT song wise it’s a step back from the 1st single from Woman to Woman which was Enough of No Love!!

    Beat is banging, hook I’d sing along with & the rest I’ve not taken notice to yet. Meaning the lyrics lol.

  46. mypenizfresh March 20, 2014

    It’s catchy.. I give her that. Honestly I just hope she returns to ‘The Way it Is’ Keyshia Cole. That cd just felt more real to me. I like W2W and I really enjoyed Enough of No Love, she was on the right page. Keyshia kinda has her own lane.. she needs to own it before K.Michelle comes in to threaten it.

  47. No favs, just here for the music March 4, 2015

    she’s beautiful

  48. No favs, just here for the music March 4, 2015

    and her voice is amazing
