keyshia coleKeyshia Cole is bitter after being dissed by radio station, KMEL, in her home town. Cole believes she was bumped from a recent show to make room for newcomer, The Weeknd. The Weeknd is an Ethiopian-Canadian singer  who has received rave reviews from noted publications that include, Pitchfork, MTV,BET, Rolling Stone, and XXL. The Source has dubbed him the songbird of his generation”.  The Weeknd recently appeared on the acclaimed and legendary, Jools Holland Show in London, alongside greats, Nona Hendryx and Soul II Soul. Others on the show were sensation, Lana Del Rey, and The Palma Violets. Who has the bigger following Cole or The Weekend, at this point? Hands down, it is The Weeknd.

The Oakland native, took to twitter to express her frustration. She said,“EVERY F**KING YEAR I do something major for my city! @KMEL has the nerve to tell me at the last minute they want me to open for the weeknd. No disrespect to the weeknd. Why the hell would @106KMEL ask me to open for him in My home town! Where I give back! Where IM FROM! #NO”

Cole said that she was not doing the KMEL event because the station called her at the last minute to tell her that The Weekend would be headlining instead of her. According to TMZ, the radio station had a different explanation. They told TMZ,“We were surprised to see Keyshia Cole’s Tweets the night of our show … as she was never scheduled to be the show’s final act.” “When we were notified a week before her performance that she planned to cancel, we immediately removed her name from all advertising and promotion and offered refunds to those fans who requested.”

 Cole was replaced with  R&B singer, Jeremih.
