Keyshia Cole speaks about cameo appearance in How She Move
Keyshia was definitely interested and though her role was small – she plays herself in the film – she was excited to take part. “At the end, I’m hosting the Step Monster competition that the main characters are all going to be in.” Though she enjoyed appearing in How She Move the singer has no immediate plans to do more movies unless the right role comes along. “Not anytime soon,” she says. “Recently they haven’t really been giving me roles that I’m willing to accept. It has to be true to my character, true to who I really am.”

The movie was filmed in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, but was based of the Jane and Finch neighborhood of Toronto. The soundtrack included the likes of Toronto artists Sticky Green and Benny Blacc along with United States major artists such as Lil’ Mama and Montell Jordan.
