The Art of Subtlety Is Lost Upon Some People...

Dear Keyshia Cole,

I have been a fan of yours almost from day one of your debut on the music scene. I remember seeing the video for "I Changed My Mind" and found you intriguing; obviously talented. Then I saw/heard "(I Just Want It) To Be Over," and I was completely sold. The Way It Is was an impressive album debut. Your latest album, Just Like You is simply phenomenal, and shows that you have the talent to be around for years to come.

Earlier this week, I found out that "Heaven Sent" would be the fourth single release from Just Like You. The music video for the song premiered on BET Access Granted last night...


The setting for the video is absolutely beautiful, but my overall impression for the video is of vast disappointment. I feel that "Heaven Sent" is a serious, deeply emotional song, and you, Miss Cole, are hopping around giddily and spastically like a junkie! With all the similarities/comparisons to the future legendary Mary J. Blige, I wish that you would have taken a cue from her (i.e. "Everything") and implemented a complete mood of serenity; while being subdued throughout the whole video. The energy that is being exhibited is just too over the top, even draggish, for an emotional ballad such as this.

Still a Fan and Hoping You Aren't On That Stuff,

--Quinton

P.S. PLEASE bring back ANY look of the "(I Just Want It) To Be Over" video. Those were GREAT looks for you!

I haven't heard too much of Keyshia Cole.

I liked when she first came out, and then she dropped "Love" and it all changed. Never in my life have I cringed so much during a song as I did when she sang that chorus. The intentional voice cracking was enough to make small children cry. She has a good voice, but that shit was uncalled for!

With that said, I like this song lol. But what exactly is she "dancing" to...all off beat!

lol People either love "Love" or find it cringe-worthy. I'm a part of the former. :-p

I love "Heaven Sent." It's an outstanding song all the way around. It still makes me kind of emotional every time I listen to it.

I don't know what she was dancing to. I love her music, but I think she might be on something. lol Her erratic, and spastic movements were my only qualms about the video. Hell, she's dancing like the song is "Let It Go" or something! Totally inappropriate for such a emotional song such as "Heaven Sent."

The only song on her second album I had time for was "Falling out". I played that shit to DEATH! I didn't even bother with the rest. I can't believe she hasn't released it as a single yet.

I like how Keyshia be putting the titties out on display in videos though. I had to look twice at the "Shoulda let you go" video. I was like "Damn!!". But the blonde weave and ghetto trash tattoo's made her look like a chicken head, and she did not look comfortable in that 2 piece bathing suit.

"Fallin' Out" is a great song and one of my MANY favorites on the album. I LOVE the ol' school doo-wop vibe it possess.

lol on Keyshia's breastesses. I think she put them on display the best in the "(I Just Want It) To Be Over" video personally. hehe

You are all wrong, she is just showing her energy in other ways than being all sappy. Heaven is a pretty happening place and she is just showing how happening she is! LOL
