Last month, Keyshia Cole made headlines when she released the song ‘She’, insinuating that she was singing about her lesbian lover just days after it was reported that she would soon be filing for divorce from her ex NBA player husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.
In her new video for the sensual track, the newly-single singer rolls around the bed in sexy lingerie in an attempt to seduce a “mysterious woman” who looks very familiar.
Regarding the song’s concept, Cole says it’s not about her playing for the other team.
“It’s about self love to me, and going through my divorce, you have to give yourself a little self love because you’re used to somebody being there every night and they’re not.”
‘She’ is the first single from Cole’s sixth studio album Point of No Return (release date TBA), and feature collaborations with R. Kelly, Juicy J, Future and Wale, to name a few.
“There’s definitely more sexy songs on this album than I’ve ever done. I’m excited to see what the people think about that, so we’ll see how receptive they are to the album. I think it’s a great album and I feel like it’s one of my best albums to date.”
Around the time world learned that things were ‘officially’ over between Keyshia Cole and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, the singer released a telling track titled ‘She’, which hinted of a lesbian love affair. The internet went crazy, with many began to wonder whether or not the track was also hinting that Cole has been seeing women since her split.
However, that this is not the case. Instead, Cole says that for her – ‘She’ is actually about her personal journey to becoming familiar with her own body following her separation from Daniel.
In a recent interview with WGCI radio, Cole said…
“I had to get familiar with myself so I think that song is really, in essence of what that song ‘She’ is about. It’s getting to know yourself. I know people think it’s about girl-on-girl action, which it was at first, and then I kinda switched the lyrics around a little bit.”
Speaking of her separation, she said preparing to go through a divorce has altered her perspective on love and relationships, and that the next time around will place a higher value on being a man’s friend first.
“It’s no way of getting around not knowing if somebody is ready or not. That’s the whole thing about friendship. Whoever I end up with, I’ve been praying that he’s my friend first. If you think about being friends, you’re not going to go and get them hit up. You not gone put them in a situation where you gone get them shot.
You ain’t gone put me in a situation where you make another woman think she got something over me. If we friends and you really love me like you say you do, it’s certain things you’re not going to do out of respect.”
As for what she has been doing to get through the difficult split, Keyshia says she has been directing her energies towards becoming more physically fit.
“Gym, yeah. Just trying to eat better. I did a fast for about 4-5 days…just juicing. I actually loved it. I go in the steam room before I work out for about 10-15 minutes then go work out for about 2 -3 hours then go pick up my son from school and get back to my motherly duties. Right now, working. Trying to stay focused.”
So the tabloids have made it pretty clear that Keyshia Cole is over her future ex-husband – Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, but what has them in a spin is Ms Cole’s new single ‘She’, which hints that she maybe over men too?
Yesterday, the R&B singer premiered her brand new song online, and according to her lyrics, Keyshia Cole is ‘down to try something different’ with her new album, and that might include a little ‘girl-on-girl’ action.
Keyshia recounts in ‘She’ about eying another woman and dreaming up some sexual fantasies.
Lips and legs, soft skin so feminine/Curves like me, covered in my cherry scent. The boys love some you, but I ain’t mad because you look good on me too.”

The sapphic song is now already making headlines before its release, as some of the lady-loving lyrics were revealed just as news broke that Cole is planning to file for divorce from ex-NBA player Gibson.
‘She’ is produced by DJ Mustard, and features an EDM-meets-R&B beat. Lyrics aside, ‘She’ she is nice tune. Great beat, and hot vocals by Keyshia. ‘She’ has been confirmed as the new official single from Ms. Cole’s forthcoming studio album ‘Point of No Return’, due in stores soon.
The full “Point of No Return” album will be out later this summer and feature collaborations with R. Kelly, 2 Chainz, Future, Birdman, Wale, Mike WiLL Made It, RedOne and Juicy J. Cole will also be kicking off the nationwide “Point of No Return” tour on July 12 in Rochester, NY.
