Keyshia Cole has released the music video for her new single online.

“Love Letter” – featuring Future – is lifted from the R&B singer/songwriter’s sixth album, “Point of No Return,” out now via Interscope Records.

The track was produced by Mike Will Made It and Marquel “Marz” Middlebrooks, who are also responsible for Miley Cyrus’ “Love Money Party” [RCA Records] and Kelly Rowland’s “Kisses Down Low” [Republic Records].

“Point of No Return” serves as the follow-up to 2010’s “Woman to Woman,” which peaked at number ten on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and featured hit singles including “Enough of No Love” and “I Choose You.”

Other musicians backing Cole on “Point of No Return” are Amadeus (Trey Songz, Jennifer Lopez), Symbolyc One (Madonna, Kanye West), DJ Mustard (Rihanna, Charli XCX) and Stargate (Usher, Chris Brown).
