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.

Dispelling rumors of signing to reported nemesis Beyonce’s label home, Keyshia – as announced on Instagram – will take the independent route for her next project.

Kicked off by ‘Best Friend,’ the Amadeus-produced cut will lead the singer into her 7th studio LP after 2014’s critically and commercially panned ‘Point of No Return.’

As of time reporting, no official release date has been set for the single or its parent album.

    Chile, already? She better come through and let have with this new album. I can see it going good since she’s back on a new major label. I need her to deliver another “She” and “New Nu”. I’m here for it, to be honest!

      YEEESSS they were 2 of my faves from her last album. That album was all over the place but i grew to like it, especially a few of the better songs. omg boo HAVE YOU HEARD K MICHELLE’S ALBUM?!??!

        People can drag and shade Keyshia to death and back to life, but that album WAS NOT BAD! “Do That For (B.A.B.)”, “Next Time (I Won’t Give My Heart Away)”, “Party Ain’t a Party”, and “Believer” we’re all jams! K. Michelle’s first and second albums were great too, but after hearing that “Mindful” mess I swore off her third album. “V.S.O.P.”, “Maybe I Should Call”, “Love ‘me All”, and “Hard to Do” (this one is my absolute fave) were great offerings. I don’t know. I just like when R&B women aren’t afraid to get s*** and sing about s**. Jhene Aiko does a job of that in “Wading” and “Living Room Flow”. ?

    “I’m telling you…you can go ’cause I ain’t puttin’ up wit’ it no more. Yeah,…I tried to stay and work it out, but you don’t really wanna be here no more. (I’m on some new s***!)” ?

    She has r&b classics like ciara and keri so im always interested.

    • RihYonce March 25, 2016

      Umm her R&B classics are way better than Ciara & Keri lmao

      • ♊Molly♊ March 25, 2016

        Didnt ask for your opinion

    The majority of those videos totally killed what was a decent R&B album.

    Woman to Woman was better though.

  6. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 25, 2016

    So glad that she is putting new music out and can’t wait at less she is still married to her husband

  7. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? March 25, 2016

  8. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? March 25, 2016

    SALUTE to ThatGrapeJuice for always showing support to the realist! #TeamKeysh #TheWayItIs

    Good luck, Keyshia but R&B music is officially dead.

  11. XoMoDe March 25, 2016

    It’s too bad she’s doing this independently. That’s a downgrade.
