O.T. Genasis is not getting ‘love’ from Keyshia Cole.
Last month, the rapper dropped “Never Knew”—a remix of Keyshia’s 2006 hit, “Love.”
Keyshia addressed O.T.’s cover during a recent episode of her talk show, One on One with Keyshia Cole.
“My only concern—this is a genuine concern is that, you know, I am trying to get my music where it used to be. I’m trying to find that passion for the music that I used to have so long ago when I was trying to get out of Oakland,” she said. “So I would like my classics to be left alone. Is that wrong as an artist to say?”
She went on to say that her feelings may have been different if he used her original lyrics or cut her a check.
“How I’m going to get paid, you know what I’m sayin’, if you making new lyrics and you ain’t sent me out a check or anything like that?” she continued. “And then people hitting me up saying, ‘I would never listen to Keyshia Cole’s song the same.'”
This is all fine and dandy — but who gave Keyshia a talk show?
