Watch: Keyshia Cole Performs New Songs ‘You’ & ‘Incapable’ On ‘Kimmel’

Published: Tuesday 31st Jan 2017 by Sam

Keyshia Cole is wasting no time signalling her return.

Over the course of the last week aline, the R&B star has released new single ‘You,’ shot its video, and now taken to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ to perform the track.

Remy Ma and French Montana joined Cole for the showing, which also saw her perform new song ‘Incapable’ – a track lifted from her 7th studio album (her Epic Records debut).

Interestingly, the cut samples Mary J. Blige‘s ‘I’m Going Down.’

Peep both performances after the jump…

Solid showings all-round.

‘Incapable’ sounds exquisite.

After a brief spell away from the spotlight, it’s great to have Ms. Cole back and better.

    Somewhat flat on some parts… but she looks great!

    • Elsie January 31, 2017

      At least keyshia booking these late night talk shows, because chrisette jazmine fantasia and k michelle don’t even get asked to perform

    • LISA LEVINE January 31, 2017

      Since when are you a vocal coach queen? exactly. Never. Keyshia has a beautiful song catalog: I remember, Thought you had my back, I should have cheated, Work it out, Give me more, HEAVEN SENT. She needs to let me choose her greatest hits and release it.

      • FAF January 31, 2017

        That’s her voice she’s like a Mary j
        She’s not a vocalist she’s an emotive singer

  2. Jackx January 31, 2017

    I need that song incapable asap. That s*** was fire??

  3. I’m Booked January 31, 2017

    Two Flat Performances, Come On Ms. Cole… Pick Better Music… Get Back too Your First Three Albums Please!

    Also You And K.Michelle Look Like Twins! Beautiful Ladies

    I am a huge Keyshia fan and I find this boring AF :-/
    She needs to be in tune more and sing louder :-/

    • FAF January 31, 2017

      I agree the music was too loud
      And she was unenthused until remy came out
      But the later half of you was good
      And incapable seemed like a rehearsal like she wasn’t confident in her sound check

  5. The Wig Snatcher January 31, 2017

    The sample is not Mary J. Blige. It’s Rose Royce’s, and Mary sampled them. Both songs are decent. I still wish that Keyshia was a better live singer.

    • Bravo!! January 31, 2017

      We know Mary j blige sampled Rose Royce. But what Sam is meaning to say Mary J Blige made it popular again, and she owed as her own..

      • Boosie February 1, 2017

        For both parties, Mary didn’t sample it she covered it. That being said the song was popular at popping for those original r&b and rare groove heads who listen to music from a time where lyric were classy and had more meaning.

  6. ya January 31, 2017

    She should practice You more she seemed like try not trying Keyshia ought’a have more precision with live performances by now. She cool but she needs to go harder for the sake of the art and the fact that her promo is always A-1 makes all these opportunities seem squandered

  7. JEC2 January 31, 2017

    I love her records and her tone, but dear lord, her pitch. Really like the songs,especially incapable.

    • Likedbymany January 31, 2017

      She was incapable of find her pitch and her note today.

  8. Likedbymany January 31, 2017

    Some parts were flat and pitchy but I could clearly see she was very nervous we know KC can blow she just trying to feel out how she is gonna perform the song which I’m interested to see how it will be without Remy or French.

    Incapable sounds great. Not here but I know it will be another hit for her.

    Call her a flop but she always outsells the R&B chicks no matter how bad the genere is doing same for Fanslaysia.

    • Boosie February 1, 2017

      Fanslaysia!!!!! I love it.

  9. Arden January 31, 2017

    Does anyone else not notice that she is clearly HIGH AF during this performance??? the lips sync with the track last night was so off I was screaming at the screen last night. I enjoy KC but this was an extra mess.Remy Ma didn’t even look at her Remy and French really just walked over her this entire performance I mean she looked surprised when he came out lol. Long story short this is NOT the way to make a major label come back Ms.Cole.

    • Likedbymany January 31, 2017

      Lmfao now I gotta watch again

  10. Erica January 31, 2017

    She can’t be talking about Michelle performing like this, Michelle would run circles around her performing solo, nevertheless I do like both songs

    • Beyoncé Jackson January 31, 2017

      Ok honey. Michelle’s tone may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and she may not give “s** kitten” effortlessly like her DC sisters but one thing my belle CAN do is SANG.

    • Bravo!! January 31, 2017

      I don’t think .K. Michelle can sing all like that.. keysha cole sound way better that .K.

      • Beyoncé Jackson January 31, 2017

        Honey we are speaking of Michelle Williams. ?
        And honestly speaking, I’d rather hear K. Michelle yodel than Keyshia screeching off key… no shade.

  11. Beyoncé Jackson January 31, 2017

    The music is just as flat as her voice. Come harder Keyshia if you wanna make a “comeback”.

    • FAF January 31, 2017

      K.Michelle is a vocalist tho she can sing live and her voice carries
      She comes from the world of performing arts so she’s very confident on stage

  12. 2bad2bme January 31, 2017

    Keyshia went back to her old look with the hair. I’m diggin it! But that’s all I will say.

  13. B_Roni January 31, 2017

    These are actually good songs. Way better than her last in my opinion

  14. Chile Please!!! January 31, 2017

    Yo! WTF is up with her notes? She always sounds OFF KEY! I just don’t get it? It’s almost like she can’t hear her own self sing. Anyway…..give it up boo!

  15. ImaMessyBitch January 31, 2017

    Just horrible! She was incapable of hiding the fact that she lip-synced the song incapable @ 0:22-end

  16. Credits January 31, 2017

    Her energy was off. She did look like she was under the influence but her team got something right, I like that she is promoting the single on tv already.

  17. Chris January 31, 2017

    So no one is going to say anything about the fact that she was lip syncing the last song.

  18. Tsumtee January 31, 2017

    She sounds terrible!!…the music doesn’t sound good either

    I Like K Michelle new song #Heaven

  19. Theman January 31, 2017

    She sounds good.. Not pitchy…..

  20. Lake Erie January 31, 2017

    R&B!!!! She never changed up!!! So glad…. I think this album is going to be solid.

  21. TheOuyonB January 31, 2017

    Ummm.. I’m disappointed in both of these performances from her. Just boring and lacked energy. She looked like she was at rehearsals. I miss the hungry Keyshia Cole. She looks good, but this was not a good look for her “comeback”.

  22. Justmeeeee January 31, 2017

    The first song was wack & the choreography was too. IMO

    The second song was just an “ok” song period EVEN IF KCole wasn’t pitchy.

    I’m still a fan & I hope there are better songs on to come on this new album

  23. Junior in Jamaica February 2, 2017

    Not feeling it.

  24. lakeitha February 2, 2017

    lip syncing. you can see at 1:02 mark.

  25. Anthony Chavez March 30, 2020

    Who can write more clearly than you about such matters! I promise you, nobody,
    I’ve seen something like this only on I enjoyed the guide and
    assume you have more such stuff? If so, so please post it
    since it is somewhat unusual for me in the current moment,
    and not only for me, that is my view. Hopefully, I can find an in-depth manual of
    yours and be aware of all the news and the most recent data.
