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.

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks is starting a family. The 27-year-old revealed to People that she secretly got married to her boyfriend Dana Isaiah in mid-July, while on vacation in Hawaii.

“We’re both really excited,” Sparks said about being a newlywed. “He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”

Sparks also announced she is pregnant with her first child that is due next spring. “It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” Sparks said about her pregnancy. “Once we got over the initial shock of it, now again just like it is with the marriage, to be able to share that this amazing thing is happening, it’s such a great thing. We did this together!”

It’s good to see that Sparks has found new love. Over the past few years, she had to endure very public breakups with her exes Jason Derulo and Sage the Gemini.
