Now that the honeymoon is over, it appears that Keyshia Cole is getting serious about revitalizing her career.

According to entertainment blogger Necole Bitchie, Cole recently announced via Twitter, that former Def Jam president and former Warner Music Group EVP Kevin Liles would be representing her. Liles, an idustry vet who played a big role in the success of Def Jam Records, is credited with turning Trey Songz into a star most recently.

Back in January, Coles let go of long time manager Manny Halley.

"Would like for u guys to know that Manny Halley is no longer my management," Cole tweeted. Someone said if the people around u won't change, change the people around you."

Cole's last album, Calling All Hearts, was plagued by poor sales.
