As she preps for a tour to support her latest release, Calling All Hearts, Keyshia Cole is calling up some of her soulful friends to possibly hit the road with her next year.
The "Long Way Down" songstress took to Ustream on Tuesday, when her album dropped, to chop it up with fans, and mentioned she plans to head out on a trek in the spring but hasn't yet decided on an R&B-heavy tour roster or a hip-hop/soul outing alongside Young Money diva Nicki Minaj.
"[I'll go on tour] in March. We'll probably start promoting sometime in January, probably the end of January. We're trying to figure out who I'm gonna go on the road with. I had a conversation with Monica about a week ago about it and I told her I would love for her to come, and Faith [Evans] and Melanie Fiona and also Tank — just to add some kind of other flavor in there. But if not, if we don't do that tour, then it will probably be me and Nicki Minaj," she said. "I mean, I would love to go out with Nicki, so we'll see which one happens."
The songstress also opened about her relationship with her "I Ain't Thru" collaborator, Minaj, explaining that the two can relate due to their similar hardscrabble backgrounds. Cole, who is four albums into her career, said she often doles out props to Minaj as the lyricist continues her ascent to superstardom.
"We're cool, we're buddies," she said. "I see things on TV and I just call her to say congratulations, and stuff like that. I'll send her an email. I think she's great. I got love for Nicki. To be honest, she's a young girl that comes up the same kind of way I came up. We can relate in so many different ways, I'm very proud of her.

Before & After is a series specifically dedicated to the Before & After activities of an up & coming artist before hitting the stage to perform and directly after. In these episodes you will receive insight revolving around the artist’s performance preparation, a peek inside some candid moments and a brief interview between LowKey and the artist.

In the third installment to “Before & After”, we follow Columbia Records newcomer Sean Garrett on the night of one of his most performances of his career: Highline Ballroom for BET’s Music Matters Tour finale. While Garrett doesn’t fail to remind us of his penmanship capabilities (he just landed his 17th #1 record for penning Usher’s “Papers” record), becoming a complete package is what he’s now aiming for. It’s been a long time coming for the Atlanta native, can he take it to the next level? You are now watching “Before & After.” ENJOY!
