EDITORS’ NOTES

On The Way It Is Keyshia Cole demands respect while baring her soul—charting the ins and outs of heartbreak and mistrust over powerful beats and string-assisted R&B. She bites back at an unfaithful ex on the searing, Kanye West-produced "I Changed My Mind," while "I Should Have Cheated" splices revenge fantasy with the pain of being falsely accused. Dreamy but insistent, Cole digs deep into the psyche of a lover scorned on this fearless and compelling debut.
