Keyshia Cole Announces ‘Ride’ as Next Single

Without an official radio impact date, Keyshia Cole teases Kamiayah-assisted track as her new single from 11:11 Reset.

In a series of Instagram posts, the “I Ain’t Thru” songstress shared snippets of the Drumma Boy produced track, captioning “Coming next 🔥🔥.”

The wavy track, sampling Tupac Shakur’s “Hail Mary,” finds the Oakland pair sittin’ on ready and ready to pull up on anyone who gets out of line. “One hundred, nothing fake about me / She better watch what she say about me, ” claps Keysh.

Lyricist Kamiyah is mean with her delivery, too. “I got some bitches outside that’ll ride for me / No lie, two times, they’ll die for me,” spits the rising rapper.

11:11 Reset is available digitally and in stores now.

Crank up “Ride,” and remind haters they don’t want no problems.
