Video: Keyshia Cole – ‘I Choose You’

Keyshia Cole

Keyshia Cole faces a tough decision in the black-and-white video for her ballad “I Choose You.” The R&B songstress is in love with two men, but she can’t decide on just one. The heartfelt song, which appears on last year’s album Woman to Woman, was written by Elijah Blake.

“Mary [J. Blige] sung it before I did and Jennifer Hudson sung it before I did as well and neither one of them took it,” said Keyshia during her appearance on “106 & Park.” “When I recorded it, we definitely paid for it right away. We was like, ‘Nobody else is recording this song. We’re taking it.’”

During her visit to BET, she also addressed the rumors that she and her husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson are having marital issues. “It’s all good. I’m living my life and I’m trying to do the best that I can do and the best way that I can do it,” she said. “If they wanna keep talking, they can keep talking. God is good to me and he’s blessed me so much.”

Keyshia recently launched her shoe collection with Steve Madden and is working on her next album.

Is she able to choose one lover over the other? Watch her come to a decision in the video below.

Rap-Up TV: Chrisette Michele Pranks Keyshia Cole, Almost Poses Nude for PETA

Prior to the release of her new album Better, Chrisette Michele spent her spring on the road with Keyshia Cole. During part two of our interview, the “Charades” singer recalled the fun times she had on the “Woman to Woman” tour.

“Touring with Keyshia Cole was an experience I’ll never forget,” Chrisette told Rap-Up TV. “Keyshia Cole’s fans are incredibly vibrant and incredibly colorful.”

So she knew she had to bring her A-game to the stage each night. “They are very live and they make you bring your best self.”

During the last show in Oakland, Chrisette decided to play a prank on her tourmate. She disguised herself as Trinidad James in an Afro wig and joined Keyshia on stage during the portion of the show where she duets with a fan. She acted crazy and remixed the song, pretending to be the “All Gold Everything” rapper.

After revealing herself, Keyshia couldn’t stop laughing. “Long story short, that was the first time we ever hung out,” said Chrisette.

She was also approached by PETA to pose nude, but after the animal rights organization saw her wearing an animal product, they called off the shoot.

“They didn’t like the stylist’s outfit choice,” she said. “I really liked it, I wore it, and that was the end of my PETA campaign. I feel bad about it and hopefully we can work together in a different capacity.”

Keyshia Cole Entertains Troops at USO Show

Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson

While on the European leg of her “Woman to Woman” tour, Keyshia Cole took time out of her busy schedule to salute the troops.

The R&B songstress performed a free USO show for America’s Armed Forces and their families at Vogelweh Air Base in Germany over the weekend. Her husband, Cleveland Cavalier shooting guard Daniel “Booby” Gibson, was by her side as she met with members of the military.

“I have such a profound respect for our troops and their families stationed all over the world—whether they are in the Middle East or here in Europe,” said Cole. “I feel so blessed to do what I love for a living and am grateful to the USO for the opportunity to perform for troops and show them some love before going back out onto the road again.”

Her husband praised her moral-boosting visit. “I am so proud of my wife and all of her accomplishments in music and in life,” said Gibson. “It is an honor to stand beside her and support her everyday, but especially on a day like Saturday—when we honored, saluted and celebrated our troops and their families through music and our actions.”

Keyshia will return to the U.S. to perform at the Essence Music Festival on July 7 in Louisiana.
