Rated Love Album Cover Final

A multi-talented, platinum-selling recording artist, Ke’Tara Shavonne Wyatt, better known as “Keke Wyatt,” has been wowing audiences around the world with her powerhouse vocals and chart-topping songs since she was a teenager. Now, the sassy, sexy, vocalist, instrumentalist, songwriter, and former star of TV One’s smash hit R&B Divas Atlanta, has released the latest single, “Love Me,” from her forthcoming album, Rated Love, which was released on April 22, 2016.

The sultry track marks a new direction for Keke musically. It is a reflection of who she is—sexy, confident and ever-evolving. Through her new music, Keke believes that people will continue to get to know “the real Keke Wyatt.” While the new single will appeal to her current fans, she also has ventured into a sexier musical style that will appeal to the lovers at heart. She’s been energizing fans about the new single by asking, “What’s your favorite sexy song?” The song, which is currently at radio, was written by Keke and produced by rising hit-maker Dominic Gordon (Luke James).

Keke was an original cast member of TV One’s hit show R&B Divas Atlanta, which featured Angie Stone, Monifah Carter, LaTavia Roberson, Syleena Johnson and Kameelah Williams. The show was TV One’s top-rated reality series and offered an inside look at how seven highly acclaimed and award-winning singers balanced their musical careers and family life. Keke allowed us a glimpse into her world where we learned that she has an immense love for her family, music and friends. Stepping away from reality TV has allowed Keke to get back to her first love—music. She has hit the ground running after the birth of her baby girl, Ke’Yoshi Bella, and recently inked a multi-album distribution deal for her Aratek Entertainment company. She is excited about the future, and she’s ready for it. In her own words: “stay tuned honey, because the best is yet to come.”
