New Music: ‘Best Friend’ by Keyshia Cole
After an almost two year hiatus, singer Keyshia Cole is finally ready to release new music. Via her official Instagram page, Keyshia informed fans she’d be releasing her next single, Best Friend, independently and any day now.
“Decided to release first single independent #BestFriend,” Keyshia wrote. “Coming soon. This is a very special song for me and I really hope you guys fall in love with the record as much as I have.”
Best Friend is produced by Antwan ‘Amadeus’ Thompson, who previously worked with Keyshia on her singles Heat of Passion, Where Would We and Next Time (Won’t Give My Heart Away).
Keyshia’s seventh solo album, rumored to be titled It is What it Is, is due out later this year. She’d previously said she would release it independently, before backtracking and saying she’d signed to her former manager’s label.
Whatever the case, Keyshia says she has new management and that she’s looking to take her career to new heights. Here’s hoping she succeeds because R&B radio is in dire need of more female voices.
