The Prescription for Spin

The Remake of Keyshia Cole Into Mary J. Blige Friday, August 24, 2007

Keyshia Cole is just like you 

The seeds were planted early. When we first heard Keyshia Cole’s raspy yet distinguished voice it reminded everyone of only one person we had heard before- Mary J. Blige. Keyshia had that same swagger and toughness and that “thing” that made her a little rough around the edges but very likeable. Just like when we first met Mary back in the 90’s. Then we saw Keyshia team up with Diddy. Just like Mary. And sometime early last year the comparisons were just too many to overlook which brings us to the current marketing campaign for Keyshia Cole’s new album.

Both ladies are on the same record label so the hype can be controlled and managed internally. Nice set up right? Smart.

At first, the tag line doesn’t really make sense. Just like you? Is she trying to connect with her fans in a more personal way, trying to drive home the message, you and I are one?

Or, is there an underlying message to fuel new rumors, spark excitement for sales and set the stage for the entrance of a new diva into the world of R & B?

Do you think the record label is setting up a controversy to drive sales?

    GURL, I KNEW THIS WAS COMING!! THE FIRST TIME I HEARD HER I SAID TO MYSELF “MARY’S CAREER IS OVAH, AND SHE BETTER FIND HERSELF AN ENDORSEMENT DEAL QUICK” MISS KEYSHIA, ALTHOUGH SHE’S A HOT MESS AND STAYS GHETTO,SHE’LL BECOME THE MATURE WOMAN THAT MARY WAS TURNED INTO. I’LL GIVE HER ABOUT 10 YEARS TO DO THAT..SHE NEEDS TO GET THROUH THE DRUGS, ABUSE, PAIN, RELATIONSHIPS, AND ALL THAT BULLSH…T! THE STORY OF EVERY R&B CHIC FROM THE HOOD!!!

    Well, First Of All I Love Mary. J She Is & Will Always Be My All time Time Favorite.Because She Has Been A Real As Female From The Jump .. Just Like Keyshia Cole Is. But I Do Feel That EveryOne Has Ther Own Pain.. What Mary Went Through In Her Life Is The Same Pain Keyshia Went ThroughIn Her’s…. All Pain Feels The Same To Everyone No Matter How It Came About..You Still Gonna Feel It..If Your Boyfriend Of 10 Years Broke Up With Yo Ass , If Yo Moma,Sister.Bother,Or Even Yo Self Is A Drug Addict Or If Some Took A Rock And Bust Yo Head Wide Open Your Gonna Feel The Pain Like I Said It All Feels The Same To Each And Every One Of Us.. However The Pain Might Be Real But There Could Only Be One Keyshia Cole’s & One Mary J Blige, They Both Come From Different Places But Over All Share The Same PAIN…One Is No Better Then The Other.. It’s Called Life Deal With It…..
