R&B singer Keyshia Cole revealed the artwork her 6th album “Point of No Return”. Keyshia worked on this album with R Kelly, Wale, DJ Mustard, Juicy J, Mike Will Made It and Future just to name a few. Below is a snippet of her interview with Fuse
The lead single from your last album was a nice return to the hard-hitting Keyshia we know and love. Your new song, “Rick James,” is hard in a similar way, but more feisty. Can you tell us about your goal with this song?
I helped write it with a few other people; collaborating with my friends is always fun in the studio. They already had the hook and I helped with the verses. Juicy J is my people so I went to get him on it as well. It’s always fun to let people hear what you’re going through, what you’re experiencing and how you feel and all the different emotions you’re going through. This album is very personal.
We’ve heard a couple different things about it. We’ve heard it’s a male-bashing record, and we’ve heard it’s about how to keep a man. Can you tell us about the album overall?
First of all, child, you can’t keep a man. A man has to want to be kept himself, you know? It starts there.
But there’s definitely more sexy songs on this album than I’ve ever done. I’m excited to see what the people think about that, so we’ll see how receptive they are to the album. I think it’s a great album and I feel like it’s one of my best albums to date. I’m really excited just to see what they feel.
Can you tell us about any other tracks on the album?
There’s [First single] “Rick James,” “No Complications” and we have another one called “She.” That’s pretty dope, it’s a very sexy record. [I'm] working with Chink Santana, as I did on the first album. We just had a great time collaborating with all these people and producers.
This is the first time I actually went in the studio and worked with these producers. This is also my last album on Interscope and I don’t know what’s to come after that, so that’s also kind of exciting.
