Keyshia Cole better watch out! The BeyHive and Destiny’s Child aren’t the only ones mad at her for hating on Beyoncé’s “Bow Down.” Super producer The Dream has chosen sides too.
The “Radio Killah,” who produced Bey’s mega-hit “Single Ladies,” has built a strong relationship with the singer over the years. So, when it came to Cole’s Twitter attack, he made it clear that he’s going where the money (and the talent) are.
“Right now because of what happened, I can’t [work with her],” Dream told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club Wednesday (April 2). “I think she would respect why I can’t. That’s my family.”
This reminds us of the scene in Forrest Gump where Forrest is trying to find a seat on the school bus and all the kids are saying “Can’t sit here.” Except there doesn’t seem to be a Jenny character who will give Keyshia aka Forrest a chance. So what does she do? Keyshia bucks back.
Cole responded via Twitter: “Dream not writing any songs for me is fine…Im on my 6th album…He’s only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which i did love, God Bless.”
At this point, Cole is familiar with receiving Beyoncé-related backlash. In February, she was slammed for singling out Michelle Williams as “f—–n the groove up” during the mini-Destiny’s Child reunion at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Her relationship with The-Dream dates back to him writing the song “Hey Sexy” for her latest album, Woman to Woman. Their chemistry in the studio was the focus of an episode on Cole’s BET reality show “Keyshia & Daniel: Family First.”
Guess lines were drawn and it is what it is.
TELL US: Do you think Dream was right for taking sides? Does Keyshia need to publicly apologize to Bey in order to save her career? Is Bey laughing about this in Cuba right now?
