Keyshia Cole may have some new music on the way.
The singer shared a snippet of “Real Me/Reel Me” on her official Instagram page on June 13. The song’s lyrics describe a failed relationship.
Although it is unclear who Cole is referring to in the track, she was recently linked to Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown. The pair fell out after Brown told Cole via Instagram Live in May that he was a player and didn’t want her. Dating rumors between Cole and Brown first circulated in March after the duo collaborated on “Don’t Leave.” The track ultimately served as a single for Brown’s debut album “Paradigm.”
In the clip, which was over a minute long, Cole expressed how she wanted to break the cycle of what appeared to be a toxic relationship. She said, “My dear, it’s becoming so clear you don’t really love me. You just in love with the idea. One day I’m your idol, next day, I’m a cycle. Recognize the pattern, and I want to break the cycle. I fell in love, fell out of love.”
The 41-year-old added, “I feel like every start is pulling me into the dark. Nothing matters, all you really want is the good part. Love me, this part of me nobody sees this part of me. Tell me, do you want me a celebrity or the real me.”
Cole seemingly addressed Brown’s remarks in the viral Instagram Live in the second verse. She said, “You left the top to go be a thot. You wanted to thot, thot, thot. Now when you talk, you sound like an opp. You got to be stop, stop, stop. I was your co-star, but you wanted the lead part.”
In addition to the video, Cole wrote the caption, “Drill drip was cute.” As fans viewed the snippet, many voiced how much they enjoyed the track. One individual even pressed Cole to release the full version of “Real Me/Reel Me.”
“Lyrics, vocals everything on point.”
“I knew a smash was bouta come! Your experience can only make or break you.”
“This a Banger Keyshia.”
“This definitely a sick a– bop! release it.”
“I want this on my phone.”
Despite sharing the snippet, Cole didn’t disclose an official date of when she plans to release the entire track.
