Keyshia Cole Teases New Album ‘Reset’


Keyshia Cole is getting ready to make that move back to music.

The R&B songstress has been teasing new songs from her forthcoming album Reset on Snapchat, including the Amadeus-produced single “Best Friend,” which was announced back in March.

“I want to be the one when you’re down I pick you up,” sings Keyshia in one clip. “I will be your best friend / Be there late at night / When you go to sleep / Be there when you open your eyes.”

It sounds like her Epic labelmate DJ Khaled will also appear on the Reset intro with a few motivational words and, no doubt, some major keys.

“They tried to kick me when I was down,” he says in one preview. “Notice how I said try. Now they want to kick it with me when I’m on. They played themselves.”

“Album Complete , New Deal /Label (Official) Announcement Coming Very Soon,” wrote Keyshia.

At the end of August, Keyshia teased a possible collaboration with Frank Ocean, of all people, posting a photo with the elusive singer, she wrote: “I So love him!! That #StudioFlowWas #SoAwesomeToday #MYFAV Just a reminder This Album I’m working on will be done in 2Months #Period 🏆 #Frank.”

Reset is Keyshia’s first album since 2014’s Point of No Return and her first since signing to Epic Records. She was previously signed to Interscope.

25 R&B Dancehall & Reggae Fusion Songs To Turn You On


Over the last few years, the influence of dancehall music in other genres has been extremely prevalent. Though genres have been pulling from other sounds not like their own for further back than we can remember, reggae, dancehall, soca, and its accompanying sounds from the Caribbean, have been some of the most replicated.

Originating in the late ’70s, dancehall music grew to new lengths in the early ’90s with sounds provided by Shabba Ranks, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Mad Cobra, and more. Uncovering massive US crossover success, the sound only provided a demand for more music like it. Thus, the late ’90s and early ’00s saw an even larger breakthrough in the US market than before, solidifying dancehall as a top contender in mainstream crossover music. While Caribbean-based artists were taking advantage of crossing over into our market, Pop, Rap, and R&B artists were also taking advantage of the addictive sound penetrating our ears. Artists like No Doubt,  Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Twista, Busta Rhymes, Sean Kingston, and more pulled the sounds of dancehall and fused it with their own, subsequently making them fall in the reggae fusion genre.

With the recent success of Drake’s “Controlla” and the Tory Lanez new single “LUV,” the love and admiration of the dancehall and reggae fusion sound continues to make its impact on current day music. While many will pose the question on whether or not dancehall is becoming mainstream again thanks to native artists like Popcaan, Konshens, Vybz Kartel, and Kranium, and non-natives such as the formerly mentioned, I give the firm answer that dancehall has never left.

With a sound that delivers longevity, appreciation, and respect, dancehall and reggae fusion songs will always be present due to their ability to stay relevant long after their debut into what we consider as “mainstream.”

Whether you’ve been a fan of the sound or are just joining in on the wave due to a few tracks that have recently surfaced, this list of “25 R&B Dancehall & Reggae Fusion Songs To Turn You On” will help you remember why dancehall and reggae fusion are two of the most influential sounds around.

Jumping on Drakes “Hotline Bling,” Keyshia Cole stands up for the ladies and pours her heart out about a love going wrong.
