Video: Keyshia Cole f. Nicki Minaj, “I Ain’t Thru”

November 12, 2010

Dear Keyshia,

You are really holding down the front half of this video, throwing off that lunatic pelt while marching down the sound stage alley then commanding the bird-eye rooftop stance I've seen previously conquered by Dru Hill and LeAnn Rimes. I'm glad you invited Nicki to bad bitch central, though. When you say your bout to take over this is your year I believe you wholeheartedly, but I also feel what you mean by that is you are going to spend a lot of the next while quietly managing your bankroll at home, hanging out with your smart girlfriends eating delicious things for dinner, pooling power and realness. At the same time, it doesn't look like this kind of ladies night is total incidental. Like, you don't need anything from it but when you have hard-earned social glow you have to move it around because keeping it withdrawn will burn you up. I don't care what anybody says, how heartbroken or not you are right at this moment, I know that at least five of the songs on your new album will make me cry. And I won't even be dripping emotional ferocity in the comfort of my own Hyundai, but on the subway. In front of people with pride!

Strength to love,

Miss Keyshia is scheduled to visit BET's 106 & Park next Thursday to legitimate world premiere the clip.
