Video Premiere: Keyshia Cole - N. L. U ft. 2 Chainz

Keyshia Cole enlists the help of rapper 2 Chainz in the futuristic visual for her new heartbreak anthem entitled "N. L. U", which actually stands for "N*gga Like You". The Alenka Obal-produced track, which samples R. Kelly's 1995 hit "Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby…", was written by Keyshia Cole together with Sean Fenton, Larry Griffin Jr., Mark Landon, and Robert Kelly a.k.a. R. Kelly. It is the fourth single lifted from the R&B diva's upcoming sixth studio album 'Point of No Return', due out tomorrow October 7, 2014 via Interscope Records.

In the Chandler La$$-directed music video Keyshia Cole calls out her ex for betraying her trust and blames him for developing trust-issues with men as a result. She delivers her soulful performance in a very fashionable way, standing next to black and blue faceless mannequins, while rocking stylish jewelry and multiple outfits. She's later joined by 2 Chainz, who admits to being a player and takes the blame for being one of those guys that go around breaking women's hearts.

Lyrics to N. L. U by Keyshia Cole ft. 2 Chainz

[Intro: R. Kelly]
Together, baby.
Heavenly Father,
Which You are in Heaven
I pray that You keep this love together.

[Verse 1: Keyshia Cole]
I prayed about this for days
And something told me
That you ain't changin', no.
And I cried from the love that we made
That's why it hurts me
Cause we ain't growin'
After all the things you put me through.

[Pre-Chorus: Keyshia Cole]
You done apologize so many times, it's like a broken record
And I'm startin' to think that I hate you
We were almost to the best part, best part

[Chorus: Keyshia Cole]
See, it's ****as like you that
Make it hard to love, make it hard to trust,
So hard.
A ****a like you make me wanna curse, burn up all your stuff
You've got your charm
A ****a like you,
A ****a like you, a ****a like you, a ****a like you
A ****a like you, a ****a like you, a ****a like you
A ****a like you, a ****a like you.

[Verse 2: Keyshia Cole]
I stayed away for so many days
And something happened
And I'm so afraid.
That we won't ever be here
So, I wonder if you felt that way
When you did the same thing to me.

[Pre-Chorus: Keyshia Cole]
You done apologize so many times, it's like a broken record
And I'm startin' to think that I hate you
We were all most to the best part, best part

[Chorus: Keyshia Cole]
See, it's ****as like you that
Make it hard to love, make it hard to trust,
So hard.
A ****a like you make me wanna curse, burn up all your stuff
You've got your charm
A ****a like you,
A ****a like you, a ****a like you, a ****a like you
A ****a like you, a ****a like you, a ****a like you
A ****a like you, a ****a like you.

[Verse 3: 2 Chainz]
Every time playin' out like a ring tone
Stomp way kiss on your cheek bone
I got a lot of stake like a T-Bone
Shorty, why I didn't get you a ring on?
I did a lot of things tho I messed up
It's far though, girl, I ain't careful
Boys of my kind don't worth the effort
I can put a dollar with no effort
Come here!
Look at the dumb A in here,
That's me!
Come forward to real!
I bought my girl some earrings,
Chandeliers in her ears and, yeah
I'm a boss and I don't have a beard
They sayin' I'm weird
I like all my fierce prince here, my house
I'm about staying serious
Troubles in bed, had to wake up
Early in the morning, no make up
There's a dumb to the men on the side bed
Ain't no man a ****a like me.

[Chorus: Keyshia Cole]
See, it's ****as like you that
Make it hard to love, make it hard to trust,
So hard.
A ****a like you make me wanna curse, burn up all your stuff
You've got your charm
A ****a like you,
A ****a like you, a ****a like you, a ****a like you
A ****a like you, a ****a like you, a ****a like you
A ****a like you, a ****a like you.

A ****a like you.
