In light of the results of the first-week sales of her latest album, Calling All Hearts, Keyshia Cole has given her longtime manager, Manny Halley, the boot.
The album really hasn’t performed as her previous albums have. It debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200, but then slipped to 23-26 this week. It came in at No. 5 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, but now has moved 9-8 on the chart. These results are a far cry from her last two albums that both debuted at the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 and remained strong thereafter. In total, the album only 194,000 copies in the first week.

Keyshia confirmed the news on her Twitter earlier this week, saying:
“Would like for u guys to know that Manny Halley is no longer my management. Someone said if the people around u won’t change, change the people around you.”
