Cole says she met the Rock icon at a party last year when he was walking by and said “Hey, how are you doing? Can you do a song with me or nah?” To her surprise Prince agreed, with the stipulation she be an independent artist. “I was doing everything on my own anyway,” Cole recently told RapUp.com, “So why not go all the way? I was never a packaged artist. Nobody ever told me what to do or what direction to take, so I’m just ready to make it official
Keyshia says she’s already back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2014’s “Point of No Return.” “I’m ten songs deep into the recording process. I don’t know what direction I want to take. I’m just recording, recording, recording.”
One thing Cole does seem to have a clear vision of and that is her reality show deal with BET. The R&B diva and the network have teamed up once more for “Keyshia Cole: All In,” a look at her life since her 2012 reality show “Keyshia & Daniel: Family First.” The show debuted on the 24th to 1.2 million viewers, solid number for a cable TV reality show.
