Keyshia Cole Essence Press Conference 2013-1

We just wrapped up coverage from day two of the 2013 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, and again we present you with news. During Keyshia Cole‘s appearance, she discussed plans that she had for her upcoming project. Coming off the success of her latest album “Woman To Woman”, Keyshia is ready to get back in the studio and record some new music for the fans. Check out some exclusive details below.

YouKnowIGotSoul: You’ve already sold millions of records and you have a huge catalog, so what inspires you at this point in your career?

Keyshia Cole: My fans; It used to be totally all about myself and then I was just really happy that people could relate to my music. As time progressed, I tried to really think about my fans and try to make sure that I keep them in mind and not just myself. That’s a process because I write my own music, so I have to get songwriters to help me out with some emotions that I might not be feeling or not be going through. With this next album, I think I’m going to challenge myself to step outside of who I am and try to focus in on people around me and what they may be going through. It’s going to be hard because I don’t do it, but I’m going to try it this time.
