After five consecutive Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200, all of them Top 5 R&B, and 11 Top 10 R&B singles, tough-and-tender Keyshia Cole will release a new single, “She,” on Tuesday, June 24th. The track follows the recent release of two buzz tracks, the fierce “Rick James” (ft. Juicy J) and fragile “Next Time (Won’t Give My Heart Away.” All of them will appear on the multiple Grammy nominee’s upcoming sixth album, Point Of No Return (Interscope).
Among the guest artists featured on the album will be Wale, Future, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, and August Alsina. Prominent producers on Point Of No Return are Mike WiLL (Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Rihanna, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, Lil Wayne), Stargate (Beyonce, Rihanna), DJ Mustard (YG, 2 Chainz), Mario Winans (Diddy, Ginuwine), and Red 1 (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj).
Cole launches the Point Of No Return Tour on Sunday, July 20th in Minneapolis, MN. El Seven/Republic recording artist Adrian Marcel, whose new single “2 A.M.” features Sage The Gemini, will open on the 21 city tour.
Point Of No Return will be Keyshia’s first album since 2012’s Woman to Woman, which debuted at #10 and quickly rose to #3. The lead single, “Enough of No Love” (ft. Lil Wayne) debuted in the Hot 100 and peaked at #7 R&B/Hip-hop. The single “Trust and Believe” hit #2 R&B/Hip-hop.
Since her 2005 double platinum debut The Way It Is hit #6 Top Albums and #2 R&B/Hip-hop (with the Top 5s “I Should Have Cheated” and platinum “Love”), Keyshia has scored two #1 R&B/Hip-hop albums. 2007’s platinum Just Like You debuted #1 R&B/Hip-hop (#2 Top Albums), propelled by the #1s “Let It Go” (ft. Missy Elliott and Lil’ Kim), “I Remember” and “Heaven Sent.” “Let It Go” was also platinum. The album garnered Cole four Grammy nominations, including for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best Contemporary R&B Album. In 2008, the platinum A Different Me also debuted #1 R&B/Hip-hop and #2 overall, with the Top 5 “Trust” (ft. Monica). 2010’s Calling All Hearts debuted #9 Top Albums and #5 R&B/Hip-hop.
