Keyshia Cole is doing it all
R&B crooner Keyshia Cole may be best known for her club hits and love of hip hop clothes, but some recent changes in her life have her singing to a different beat. BET reports the star is mixing up her sound due to her new experiences as a wife and a mother.
Cole opened up about her new side during the recent Essence Music Festival. Cole admits everything about her has changed since falling into her new roles and her fans should expect to hear a lot of differences on her upcoming album, "Woman to Woman." In the past Cole was known for creating powerful break-up songs and women power anthems, now she's more into love songs and ballads. However, she's brought in a team of experts to keep her fans happy.
"It has [changed] because I'm in a happy place now," Cole admits about her sound. "However, some of my fans are not. So I brought on a bunch of writers this time around…obviously. I'm not in that place to write those kinds of songs."
Aside from mixing up what she's writing and singing about, Cole believes her voice has also changed for the better. The singer thinks she's grown vocally and her new songs really express the new sound.
Her album isn't the only thing set to debut this fall, Cole reports fans will be able to see a lot more of her and her family on their new reality TV show, "Family First."
"It's me, my husband, my son and my mother, Frankie. My mother's been in rehab for a while," Cole told the publication. "I'm really proud of her. It's just a different view of me and what I've been through. You won't see Neffe [Cole's sister] on the show. However, I wish you would have."
AntiMusic.com reports Cole's album, set to be released sometime this fall, will feature collaborations with Lil Wayne among other big name rappers. Her single with Wayne, "Enough of No Love," was released last Thursday.
According to Vibe Magazine Cole's show will air on BET and will showcase her family life as well as a behind the scene look at the making of her new LP.
Fans of Cole who want to dress like her can do so by purchasing the Apple Bottoms Jammin Romper to show off their curves this summer.
