Keyshia Cole recently talked with Singer’s Room where she talked about her disappointed in Mary J. Blige for never reaching out and showing support as well as her hurt music that many of her fans (from the beginning) seemed to enjoy most.
On her disappointed in Mary J:
I’m very happy to have been compared to such a wonderful woman, a strong woman. The only thing that I would’ve changed, that I am now here to do for those that come after me, is to lend a helping hand. I feel that even if it’s not me saying I’m gonna record with you, I’m gonna work with you or let’s go hang out or anything like that; we don’t have to be friends, but at the end of the day, being able to give advice or help somebody that is coming under you is an amazing gift to be able to have. I wish I would have had that from Mary, but I’m not Mary, I’m a different person and if K. Michelle ever call me or anybody for that matter, for advice, I would absolutely give it to them.
On artists that she happens to like at the moment:
Brandy, I love her new song. I love Melanie Fiona’s voice. Miguel is doing a great job. Trey Songz is doing great. Chris Brown is more pop than R&B but he’s doing equally as great.
On her hurt music & her current state in music:
Writing this new album, I brought a couple of song writers on and decided to collaborate with a few because the girls wanted to hear some more…not ‘angry’ but ‘I’m done with the foolishness’ type of songs. So I figured that if I bring somebody on that are experiencing some of things, then I could always go back to a place where I’ve been hurt before, bring my ideas to the table. But I wanted to work with other song writers for this album. I feel like the songs are for the fans anyway. What makes them happy is to have music that helps them get over a relationship that are doing them no good, then I’m totally for it.
That’s interesting to know. I honestly haven’t liked a thing she’s done since her first album, but rock out, Keysh!
Are you guys looking forward to her upcoming album, Woman to Woman? Post your thoughts!
