When a Bevy Smith invite hits your inbox, “hunty” (to quote Bev), you best clear your schedule –
Such was the case recently. Bevy Smith hosted a rooftop soiree to celebrate the return R&B songbird bird, Keyshia Cole. With the digital release of “Enough Of No Love”, Ms Cole delivers her trademark edge. Keyshia’s new album, “Woman To Woman”, will release in its entirety later this year. Look out for the six-part reality series on the making of “Woman to Woman”, set to air Oct 9 on BET.
I’ve always loved the rawness of Keyshia’s voice. . . there’s a certain depth there that seems to connect — particularly in a song like “Love”. I mean, I believe every. single. damn. word. That voice…that grit — when she belts out “Ooooh, looooove”. . .and the crackling at “I fooooound”. Phew! Yes, Keyshia. Welcome back, hunty!
