There’s something about when current day R&B singers take on an old retro soul sound in their ballads. I have always had a major weak for songs like “I’m Going Down” by Mary J Blige and “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” by En Vogue. And now, there’s one more song to add to that list. It’s the song “Incapable” by Keyshia Cole.
It’s one of those emotionally overcharged songs that any singer loves to sing anyway, including myself. It just allows you to get completely lost in the lyrics, drama and everything else. It would be great if all that drama could just restrict itself to song words rather than real life, right?
Keyshia has been through a high profile divorce from former NBA star, Daniel Gibson. It was enough heartbreak to spark a whole album, her seventh, “11:11 Reset”. And it really does appear to be a reset.
