This week, Keyshia had the cover story to Rolling Out Magazine. A truly reflective interview, KC talks about the message and truth of Woman to Woman, how far she's come since Oakland, and having a relationship in the industry, while admiring Bey and J.
On the Woman to Woman, Keyshia states
“This album is not anything new.” “A lot of the songs are not reflecting on my life right now. It’s an album for my fans. They were there when I came from Oakland, [Calif.], and they could relate to me and what I was going though. I wanted to get back to that. This is my fifth album and I now understand what translates to the fans and what doesn’t. This is what they want.”

"The day started off like any other day during rolling out’s monthly west coast trip. But as soon as Keyshia Cole walked through the door, our trip was forever changed. The talented singer, who is prepping for her new album release, blew the doors off of the photo studio with an exclusive photo shoot that left us all kicking ourselves for not featuring her sooner." states the writer of the article.

"When I heard the song, I just thought it was amazing. Absolutely amazing and it made me cry actually," Cole told MTV News in October when shooting the clip in Los Angeles. "I've never been in a situation where my boyfriend has cheated on me with one of my closest friends but I know a couple of people who have."

The video is finally here! After a two day video shoot and a VIPeek on 106 and Park yesterday, the world premiere of Trust and Believe has arrived.
Trust and Believe, referred to as a movie, is definitely one of Keyshia's best videos. Directed by Benny Boom, the storyline follows the background of the song in a relationship where Keyshia's man is cheating with her best friend. The moral of this story is to always remain faithful. Best R&B video of the year. It definitely deserves a few awards. The cast is as follows:
Keyshia Cole Gibson as Myeshia
Tae Heckard as Tonya Wilson
Rotimi as Dontay Jones
