YAWN... New Keyshia Cole... I guess...

Dear Keyshia,
If this is the stuff that fills your next album, I will not be buying it. Everything you do these days sounds the same and it got old with the last album. Call me when your sound matures... I'm tired of the raspy reaches for notes that sound halfway soulful and halfway hellish. I'm really not saying this to bash you, I think you have great potential, but I'm not seeing it. Upgrade your game please... NOW....

To anyone that's interested, this song is a confirmed track on her upcoming album A Different Me hitting stores on December 16.

  1. I was hoping for something new...I agree she needs to try something different, these ballads and all this love, loss and blah blah blah. I'm over KeyCo and she's got so much talent.

  2. Kimesha Said,

    You know what, I liked this track at first but after reading your review and listening to it again, I agree. It does sound the same.

  3. Oh I can't agree with this...it's one of my guilty pleasures, but I love Keyshia Cole.

    I'm first to admit that live, she should be arrested for murder in the first degree for what she does to some of her songs, but on record, I can't get enough.

    "Just Like You" was one of my favorite albums of 07, and songs like, I Remember, Heaven Sent, and especailly Got To Get My Heart Back...damn, I just feel the love and loss.

    Speaking of, how can you say that you are tired of love and loss, that's what 99% of R&B is, isn't it? I guess she can't repeat those sentiments but Christina Aguilera can do so while doing those tired runs time and time again.
