Just recently, Keyshia posted a video via her new SocialCam account that shows her in her hotel room warming up for her UNCF performance. The 1:18 video shows Keyshia angelically vocalizing the Meek Mill assisted 'Zero' with the verbal support of little DJ.

With 96,000 opening week sales, Keyshia managed to achieve her fifth consecutive top 10 album, exceed her album predictions sales of 75,000, and earn her credibility as having the highest opening week sales for any female R&B artist of 2012. The album also debuted at #2 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (behind Rihanna's Unapologetic *side eye*). Other charts include Billboard's Digital Albums (10) and Tastemaker Albums (6). If you haven't copped your album, be sure to get it now on iTunes and Amazon.
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.
