Keyshia Cole Previews New Song, ‘Best Friend’

Cole

Keyshia Cole has wasted no time getting in the studio to create new music for her forthcoming album.

The Oakland native took to her social media on Sunday (August 2) to share snippets of a new song titled “Best Friend.” On the track, Cole sings about being the person her man can depend on and how she count on him to be honest at all times. “I believed every word that you told me / there would be no talk because you would show me / It will be a feeling that I couldn’t describe, you know why? / because I would be your best friend,” sings Cole.

The song will appear on Cole’s follow-up to 2014’s Point of No Return, which included “Rick James,” “She” and “N.L.U” featuring 2 Chainz.

Cole announced at the 2015 BET Awards that her new album would be released independently.

Solange Enlists Kelela, Dev Hynes and more for New Calvin Klein Campaign

Another day, another slay! Solange partners with Calvin Klein to promote their newly launched underwear and denim line, Our Family. #MYCALVINS.

To make the first chapter of its #MYCALVINS campaigns and partnership with Solange a success, the global brand allowed the always stylish musician to handpick fellow musicians to help market the fashionable underwear and jeans.

Artists Kelela, Dev Hynes, Caroline Polachek and Adam Bainbridge of Kindness joined Solange for the monumental photo-shoot captured by photographer, Willy Vanderperre.

According to a press release, “The group is shot together as a ‘chosen’ musical family, illustrating the overarching message of the campaign. The evolved #MYCALVINS concept has family at its center, a display of unity between strong individuals, further emphasized by the symbolism of the traditional American quilt. This campaign captures these bonds and brings to life different ways we can inspire families – both born and made – to connect with one another, and celebrate the things that unite us.”

Solange shared her humble appreciation to Calvin Klein’s Chief Creative Officer Raf Simons on Instagram for “celebrating my musical family, and for capturing us so authentically us.”

Our Family. #MYCALVINS will run from now until spring 2018.
