Keyshia Cole and K. Michelle concur that working together on a project together would be fantastic.
Cole’s followers on Twitter asked who would make the ideal collaborator for an album with Cole on Thursday, October 5.
It was suggested to look at Faith Evans, Keke Wyatt, and K. Michelle as examples of female artists in the genre. Cole tweeted his approval of the pairing.
According to a tweet from another supporter, Cole and K. Michelle “compliment each other so well.” In response, Cole said, “I wouldn’t mind at all.”
After seeing a tweet about it, K. Michelle discussed working with Cole in her Instagram Stories. I support it, she wrote.
This isn’t the first time Cole and K. Michelle have discussed collaborating. In autumn 2014, K. Michelle teased a co-headlining tour with Cole that was scheduled to launch in January 2015.
While promoting her sophomore album (Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart?), K. Michelle told Billboard that she would do shows with Cole, but no official dates for the tour or spot dates were announced.
In February 2021, K. Michelle revealed on Twitter that she and Cole had reconciled and were considering releasing a joint EP.
So last night on clubhouse was a great moment for the culture. Me and @KeyshiaCole squashed any little misunderstandings we had like adults and sang songs together all night. Y’all might even see a joint EP,” she wrote.
K. Michelle and Cole were supposed to work together on “Pain Killa” back in 2013, according to songwriter and producer David “Swagg R’Celious” Harris.
Initially available on K. Michelle’s Hold Over EP, the song was eventually made available on Still No Fu*ks Given. We had discussed having Keyshia Cole perform, but it never occurred.
I don’t recall the reasoning, but I believe that when we first created it, we thought, “Man, this would be dope if Keyshia Cole were on it,” exclusively revealed Swagg R’Celious to Rated R&B in August 2023.
