Keyshia Cole might be a new face on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, but she’s back on her music grind ahead of her upcoming album 11:11 Reveal. The first single from the set, “Incapable,” finds Keyshia back in her ballad wheelhouse as she sings about a man who just can’t love her the way she needs. For the song’s Mike Ho-directed visual Keyshia decides to throw it back all the way to the roaring ’20s for the vintage-inspired video.
In the clip, Keyshia plays both a jilted lover and the night club’s entertainment as the story progresses. We start with the entrance of a beehived Keyshia and her man strolling into a speakeasy. However, when Keyshia excuses herself to go the ladies room, she happens to overhear a woman admitting to her friend that Keyshia’s man is creeping…with her. Oh snap! Rather than confront the no-good dude right then and there, though, she sits in silence as her performer alter ego wrecks the stage tears down the stage in an all-white gangster-inspired get-up. Her performance gets the whole club moving to her wedding and also gives Keyshia something to think on, resulting in Ms. Cole finally realizing that she can do better and leaving her man standing alone.
Sure, this is definitely a story that Keyshia’s told before, but the retro vibes definitely make this visual that much more interesting. Check out the retro clip below and look for Keyshia Cole’s 11:11 Reset to arrive in stores on October 20th.
