Keyshia Cole is looking fabulous, sounding amazing, and pushing forward with her newest yet-to-be-named album. TheYBF.com had the fab opportunity to sit down and chat with Ms. Cole on the set of her new video for “I Aint Thru” just days ago.
She reveals to us the possible names for her upcoming album, the inspirations she’s gotten from motherhood, finding “the one”, and the real deal with her and Nicki Minaj.
YBF: What was the inspiration behind the video “I Ain’t Thru?”
Keyshia Cole (KC): The inspiration behind “I Ain’t Thru,” I think Benny’s direction was just getting me and Nicki together of course because she’s on the song. And more street elements, back to the basics of the first album.
Why did you choose this particular track as one as the first off this album?
KC: I love this record. I just like the song. It was an idea that I came up with a long time ago and me and Nicki decided to do a feature together and I just played it for her to see what she would think about it. It just came and it was hot to me.
Speaking of Nicki, we’ve been hearing some rumors about a rift between you two in the studio. So, do you and Nicki go way back?
KC: No, no, no, that’s the second time somebody asked me that. We actually just met, but she’s a dope MC. I think that she brings a lot of excitement to the game. She’s not afraid to be different and I think that that’s dope.
And you all have a good connection?
KC: Yeah, yeah. It was all good, it was dope.
