By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
For months there has been plenty of speculation surrounding R&B singer Keyshia Cole’s troubled marriage to Daniel Gibson. Although both have been hinting at their marriage issues on social media multiple times, a divorce still hasn’t happened. But Keyshia is singing about their marital issues in her new music, and it’s clear recording during the hard times is bittersweet.
Just months after dropping a remix to Chris Brown’s hit “Loyal,” the R&B singer is back with a new track entitled “Rick James.”
On the new track, Keyshia delivers plenty of sass and cockily sings:
“Why does it matter now? / Who can do you better? / Feet up on your couch / Yeah, b*tch, I’m Rick James / Slap a b*tch like Rick James”
Check out the track below:
In related news, Keyshia stopped by to chat it up with The Breakfast Club crew and she dished on her “beef” with Beyonce and her marriage to Daniel Boobie Gibson.
When it comes to the “Bow Down” controversy, Keyshia says she loves Beyonce but she didn’t like the song for her:
“I was not hating on Beyonce. No, it was not directed at all as hate….Yeah, I love Beyonce…Well the thing is, I’ve seen Beyonce a few times…She’s always a very sweet girl. To me, that just wasn’t her, you know what I mean, her thing. But I don’t know. Like dude said, she switched it up. So, I don’t know. But that’s just not what I know of her so it kinda hurt my feelings a little bit.”
She also explained her fallout with Michelle Williams too:
“Well she stared that…She started that and it really hurt my feelings too…. ‘cuz she’s Christian and she’s a church girl and all of this but yet we talk on the phone and you say you apologize for taking a tweet down that you said about me in the first place. You know what I’m saying? And I just felt like everybody just jumped on me ‘cuz I’m from Oakland, I’m the ghetto chick and I’m always starting everything in actuality I just say how I feel. You know what I’m saying and I don’t feel like I was starting nothing. But I was just getting her back for what she said to me.”
When asked if she’s going to get a divorce, Keyshia says:
“I just, you know what I mean, I just wanna put my music out. And just you know, sit in my own craziness. You know what I’m saying? And just chill out for a minute. Like I don’t really know what I wanna do right now. I don’t want to talk about it…I don’t really want go into it.
“We co-parent. He’s a great father though.”
She then says her marriage to Daniel has pretty much tarnished her belief that NBA players can be faithful to their wives:
“I really did. I believed in that. And on top of that, we just had so much of a great relationship. I felt like, I felt like it wouldn’t be possible.”
