The last few years of Keyshia Cole's music career has been in limbo as she has been trying to get back to the core of her music sound & deciding if she wants to remain a free agent once parting ways with her longtime label Interscope Records back in 2015. Originally she was 100 percent sure that she wanted to go the independent route, but now that 2016 is quickly coming to a close her plans have shifted & for the better.
Cole has been very dedicated to recording what will be her seventh studio album that she says that she is, "extremely excited & extremely proud of my work." Just two weeks before we ring in 2017 she has announced via instagram that she has officially signed a new recording contract with Epic Records.
Read the announcement below.
In the instagram post Keyshia shared a video proudly hanging out with her new Epic family & even took a picture with L.A. Reid. In the caption she takes a trip down memory lane expressing how proud she is of the forthcoming project she has been working on & that she hasn't "worked so hard on a album since back when I had that hunger, since this music thing was all I had."
