R&B songstress Keyshia Cole’s sophomore CD “Just Like You” has been certified platinum for selling over one million copies following the tremendous success of her 2005 platinum debut album “The Way It Is.” “Just Like You” debuted at #2 on the “Billboard 200” chart and #1 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart in October selling close to 300 thousand copies in its first week of release. The CD is Executive Produced by Keyshia Cole, her manager Manny Halley, and Geffen Chairman Ron Fair. With the release of the first single from “Just Like You,” the Missy Elliott-produced “Let It Go,” featuring Elliott and Lil’ Kim, 26-year-old Keyshia Cole became the first female in the history of the 14-year old Nielsen BDS-based Urban chart to land three consecutive #1 chart positions. “Let It Go,” follows “I Should Have Cheated,” which topped the list in December 2005, and “Love,” from April 2006. Last week Keyshia was honored with two (2) Grammy award nominations: Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Let It Go” and Best Contemporary R&B Album for “Just Like You.” Tonight (12/11) marks another milestone in Keyshia’s impressive young career as the dramatic one hour grand finale of the second season of her BET reality series “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is 2” airs at 10 PM. In this emotional “Family Reunion,” Keyshia bonds with her biological and foster families. “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is 2” ranks as the #1 Returning Series Premiere Performance in BET history and its #1 Original Series Premiere this season. Keyshia will also make her movie debut in the upcoming MTV film “How She Moves” due to be released in 2008.
