No matter what genre of music you listen to, you probably mentally sort your favorite artists into general categories (e.g., Clipse are coke rappers, Devin‘s a weed rapper, and Travis McCoy is a rock-rapper). In the same vein, Keyshia Cole is frequently classified as a “heartbreak singer,” but on December 16, she plans to show audiences A Different Me. The project’s first single, Playa Cardz Right, should be highly recognizable, as it was originally featured on Tupac‘s sixth posthumous album, Pac’s Life. With Ms. Cole’s vocals and Pac’s words of wisdom, and a saxophone-laced beat from Karma Productions, Playa Cardz Right maintains the same appeal that it offered two years ago.
