Keyshia Cole recently performed at the final event in the Heineken Red Star Soul series in New York. We couldn't make it due to deadlines, but our good friend The Good Reverend Dr.J was there so we hit him up to discuss her performance and our mutual love for the Oakland native whose new Love Album will be out for the holiday season.
Interview by Peter Macia
Alright, so I saw some pictures of Keyshia on whatspoppin.net and she's looking real good
no more red hair
Yes indeed..she's looking nice
How did she sound though?
Well I wasn't really a fan of the sound system and or the engineers that night as DJ Cassidy had numerous problems with them...
but despite that she sounded good
Was she singing new stuff or the hits?
She ran thru some of the new stuff as well as the hits..
ended the show with more newer stuff
Wait she has a new album coming out soon right?
The Love Album.
thats the name of the last song she did
Did it make you love her?
I already loved Keyshia
Take note that I kind of love her too, so watch out.
"Get yo hands off my Woman" (c) Leroy's lil bro in last dragon
Oh dude, Keyshia is kind of the Vanity of 2008
That's actually not that true
Vanity was from Canada
she from the Bay
Who's the last great singer out of Oakland?
Now there's a collabo
I'm shocked we haven't seen one from them yet
Maybe it'll happen. You know she reads The FADER dot com everyday.
I get emails from her all the time.
wow so she really is your woman
Purely platonic. I'm taken.
So on a scale of 1 to 10, what would you give her performance, ignoring all the sound problems, etc?
ignoring the sound problems...i give her a 9 maybe
the back up dancers were on point
so was the band
Nice. And on a scale of 1 to 10, how many Heinekens did you drink?
I can't drink beer under pressure
I.e. that was the only thing you could get at the bar
I respect your selectivity. And responsibility. And I thank you for the firsthand report.
