Just Like You review

Nothing venture, nothing have

Keyshia Cole was born in 1981 in Oukland, California, USA. Her brother Sean is a rapper, he was a close friend of Tupak Shakur and recorded some songs with him before his death. No wonder, Sean's younger sister was intersted in singing from the early years and made the first record at 12. Keyshia had a beautiful voice and thought only of the singing career, though hesitated if she should put all at stake and go to Los Angeles. All her wavering moods vanished, when the girl revealed her boyfriend's deceit. That is the way at the age of 16 Miss Cole found herself in Los Angeles, sitting in a rented car with 200 dollars in the pocket. Keyshia's angel did not let her down: soon she was noticed by Ron Fair, the producer of A&M Records, major recording label. The artist recorded her debut dics, The Way It Is, in 2005. But the world was not in a hurry to greet the new R&B female singer, and Keyshia had to release three singles before sales grew up to a satisfactory level. Though from this moment they went on, growing till the album got the platinum certification. Inspired by the success, the singer immediately started working over the second creation. In September 2007 Just Like You was presented to the public.

Just Like You: album filled with sencerity

Keyshia grew from a purposeful girl into a beautiful young woman, full of interior strength, romantic aspirations and sencerity. She was not afraid to demonstrate it on her new album and only gained of it - in today's commertially oriented R&B world, she seems to be the one, who really believes in what she sings about. Let It Go, recorded with such legends of Hip-Hop, as Missy Elliott and Lil'Kim, became the first single from the album. This upbeat club track has already gained all dancefloors in the USA. Got To Get My Heart Back is a wonderful song about broken relations, when a woman should go away to recover after the unfortunate love. This theme of unhappy life experience is brillianlty developed in such emotional songs, as Fallin' Out and Shoulda Let You Go. The last composition features Amina, Keyshia's protege. Give Me More is a very sencere track with a penetrating melody about personal relations problem, familiar to many women - lover's coldness and lack of affection demonstration. Keyshia pleads the male-character to be more tender and attentive to her. Work It Out is one more song about relations, but this time about the way they are falling apart and one can do nothing about it.

Keyshia Cole: R&B phenomenon

Though Hip-Hop is a very popular musical style now, and there are many bright representatives of it in today's show-business, Keyshia Cole can be called and outstanding R&B diva in the above mentioned circles. She is often compared by critics to Beyonce, Brandy, Monica... Yet Keyshia has one principal difference from her female peers - unlike them she grew up in the streets of Oukland, not in glitter and luxury of Hollywood. She had to make her way through alone, relying only on her talent and intuition. This artist knows that life is not a basket of favourite biscuits - it has bitter moments. That is why her songs are not that naive and light-mooded, as the others' R&B female artists. Keyshia personally said that Just Like You is pointed not only at young women, but is also created for a wide range audience. She also added, that the message of this wonderful Hip-Hop album, decorated by Cole's rich vocals, perfectly fitting for singing soul, tells about problems, hiding inside everyone - one should develop and change personally, instead of pointing at others' shortcomings. Taking into concideration Keyshia's own example, it is sensible.
