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.
