- Often it is said that the only constant in life is change. Four-time Grammy nominated, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Keyshia Cole knows well about enduring the seasons of change, particularly matters of the heart. With the release of her fourth album CALLING ALL HEARTS (Geffen Records), in the true spirit of full disclosure, Keyshia pours her heart and soul on all 14 tracks of her latest masterpiece. Enlisting powerful collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Faith Evans, Tank and her mother Dr. Yvonne Cole, and partnering with production giants Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Timbaland, Keyshia made this project a labor of love and an true expression of life…Keyshia’s life. According to Keyshia, “I wasn’t that optimistic about finding true love.” In the early stages of developing CALLING ALL HEARTS, Keyshia had all but given up on the prospect. “I decided when I did get back into the swing of things I’m not dealing with anyone who’s not on my level.” Enter Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The undeniable connection between the two not only transformed Keyshia’s heart, but also soon after the birth of their son, Daniel Jr., she was able to pour out her heart in signature fashion to complete this, her 4th album. Keyshia’s journey is reflected in the depth she brings to each song on CALLING ALL HEARTS. Being transparent is nothing new and has resonated in her music since her 2005 debut, The Way It Is. To date Keyshia has scored two #1 R&B/Hip-hop albums and seven #1 singles, two of them platinum. In addition, she has amassed six Top 40 hits on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart in the span of five years. Her 2nd album, 2007's Just Like You, debuted at #1 on Billboards R&B/Hip Hop chart (#2 nationally) and was propelled by three #1s, the platinum "Let It Go" featuring Missy Elliott and Lil' Kim, "I Remember" and "Heaven Sent," while "Shoulda Let You Go" featuring Amina hit the Top 10. The groundbreaking album garnered Keyshia four Grammy nominations, including Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best Contemporary R&B Album, and an American Music Award nomination. By her 2008 third release, A Different Me, Keyshia not only debuted #1 on the R&B chart for a second time, but captured the R&B Top 10 singles chart with "Playa Cardz Right" featuring 2Pac, "Trust" featuring Monica and "You Complete Me."
