New Music: Keyshia Cole – ‘Next Time (Won’t Give My Heart Away)’

Next Time

After threatening to “slap a bitch” on her Juicy J-assisted single “Rick James,” Keyshia Cole shows a softer side on “Next Time (Won’t Give My Heart Away).” On the vulnerable ballad, the R&B songstress opens up about her relationship with estranged husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, who reportedly cheated on her.

“The crazy part about it is I took you right back / I thought you were a changed man / I tried to work it out for the sake of my family / But you took my kindness for weakness and my love for granted,” she sings.

But Keyshia warns him that this will be his last chance. “You do it again / Next time, I won’t throw my heart away again,” she says.

The song is one of six tracks she freestyled for her upcoming sixth album. “It’s just about giving your heart away and not really thinking, just moving on love and not moving with your mind,” she told “The Breakfast Club.”

The follow-up to 2012′s Woman to Woman will be out in August and will be her final album for Interscope.

    Deejay Reply:, So u think the fact that she free styled it makes the song less shitty?????
    That’s no excuse. The song still sucks. Don’t be mad at me. Be mad at keyshia’s Rick James head ass for this trash ass song.

    The song is fire, the inflections of her voice are beautiful, the story is raw/uncut and clearly personal.. Keyshia has a unique sound and style.

    Eh! When you listen to her first 3 albums you hear the effort. this last 2 have been trash. I don’t even think she trying. Instead of finalizing this, she should’ve done the freestyle, listen to it, and then write a song from that. But I guess she feel she on that level. Keyshia girl…..just go back and listen to your music and recognize what made you successful.

    It’s so obvious that she’s putting out an album just to satisfy her 6 album deal…this is so trash…just like that Rick James record. She should of just put out a Compilation album, with a new song as the single to fulfill her contract.

    This is a sleeper….and this is coming from a fan. If you gonna sing about heartbreak for the millionth time, at least gut some heart into it. I’ll just play the Calling All Hearts album again

    Questionable taste in these comments. While neither of the two new songs are radio-ready, they’re far from weak songs. Great job Keysh! Looking forward to new music from my Bay Area songstress. Loving these two!

    I can’t believe so many ppl dislike these cuts I really like this and Rick James and I’m no big Keyshia supporter. But if you listen to her she really is a good singer, I became a supporter after Losing You with Anthony Hamilton.

    Her vocals seem unfinished


  9. earringdiva

    I’m mad I took the time out to search for a site to hear this song. I usually love Keyshia’s break up songs but I think she should’ve let the writers take this one. She sounded like she was singing in the shower or just playing around in the studio. Her team should’ve Vetoed this whole freestyle thing.

    Give keyshia a break. The girl tried to be happy in her marriage and put out love songs you didn’t want it, then she was happily married putting out cheating songs you didn’t want it. Now he cheated you want to know about that! The girl is hurting DAM she is hurt let her have fun through her pain in the video.She is cute in it , the song is different,she is real not fake. Nobody talking about the fake ghetto beyonce singing that stupid song I woke up like this. Keyshia a bad chic that’s real and she can sing how she wants keep it rolling if you don’t like it one track mind kids and haters.
