If Keyshia Cole was hoping The-Dream would lend a helping hand with her next album, she’d better think again.

The “Single Ladies” hitmaker has enjoyed a close relationship with both Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z for some time now and he’s not about to lose that for a damn Keyshia Cole.

During an interview with The Breakfast Club, The-Dream responded to DJ Envy’s question about whether he’d produce a record for Keyshia given her beef with Beyonce.

“Right now because of what happened I can’t and I think she would respect why I can’t. That’s [Beyonce] my family. You’re talking about my family and you can’t do that,” he said.


Keyshia, you’ll recall, took issue with Beyonce’s song, “Bow Down,” and blasted the singer for it on Twitter.

As expected, Keyshia responded to The-Dream’s statement with a tweet:

Well, at least she didn’t curse anyone out. Maybe she’s still in a good mood from the Easter spirit of this past weekend.

The-Dream and Keyshia collaborated for her 2012 album ‘Woman to Woman’ on the song “Hey Sexy.” Listen to it below.

Real talk: Given the sales of her last album, The-Dream was probably giving Keyshia that hood discount anyway. So no sweat off his back.

Keyshia better apologize quick and recognize that when she messes with Beyonce, she’s rumbling with a whole team.
