Keyshia has two consecutive platinum albums, eight top 10 singles on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (including three No. 1s) and a top-rated reality show on BET.
On Dec. 16 Imani/Geffen/Interscope will release her third album, “A Different Me,” which will drop in the wake of the 360 deal Cole signed with Interscope that includes a movie based on her life.

I can just see the couches and the fireplace going. “But to get there,” she continues, “I have to first accomplish my musical goals. To quote Tupac, got my money right, I got my mind right, and now I want war.’
