Meet Coletrane Williams.

Coletrane Williams is a multi-talented musician and actor hailing from Savannah, GA. If his name seems to ring a bell, it's because he's starred in notable TV shows such as Greenleaf and most recently, Love Is___, where he played the role as Marvin. In addition to acting, he's a rising singer and songwriter and his latest album entitled Jericho is available to stream now.

Indulge responsibly ladies…

On the Qualities He Looks for in a Woman...

"A woman who is passionate towards herself and her goals. I guess that quality could be called ambition. I want to be with someone fun and trustworthy so that I'm comfortable. I would also want to be with someone adventurous because life is nothing but discovery."

On His Ideal Date...

"I feel the best dates for me aren't planned — so I'm all about spontaneous trips to the beach at midnight. This way we can listen to music and talk about our goals."

On What His Last Serious Relationship Taught Him...

"Man, oh, man. Overall, I want to say it taught me resilience. I also learned that love can be shared mutually and still be misunderstood. That there can still be different weights to the meaning of reasons as to why each person is in love."

 On Major Relationship Deal-Breakers...

"Trust and loyalty."

On the Hardest Part About Dating in this Day and Age...

"I don't think it's any harder to date now than then. I feel like a lot of people are looking for love, allowing yourself to be open to it is the key."

On Making His Woman Feel Special...

"I think it depends on the woman you're trying to make feel special, but in general, listen to her and focus on maintaining a balance. For example, if she cooks, then I'll clean. But if it's a special occasion, then I'll write something for her or just try to show her where she stands in my life."

On The First Thing He Notices About a Woman...

"It depends on the woman's fly! But honestly, it's energy over everything. If I don't feel her, it won't matter how bad she is."

On His Relationship Status...

"I'm single."

When we think of R&B, we think of soul. Soul, by definition, is emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance. Black people are soul. Everything about us. Our hair. Our energy. Our skin. And, without a doubt, the creativity that courses through every inch of who we are. So, when it comes to our music, spiritual experiences are often what we call them. Makes sense, for there are no other people who remain unbroken the way we do. And every so often, an artist comes along who seems to be the physical manifestation of all that we are.

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

As the summer comes to an end, we must welcome the time for change. Say goodbye to summer and hello to cooler weather! And we know what that means ladies: We have to switch up our fashion trends, how we wear our hair, and even our skincare routines. When it comes to skincare, we as Black queens have to make sure our products are on point for all the seasons. It is crucial for us to protect our blessed and melanated beauty.

You would think with the amount of trends and dollars being put behind beauty brands, that there would be better representation in the medical field to help us understand our skin better from the jump. Unfortunately, Black physicians only make up 5% of the physician population, and if we want to talk about Black dermatologists specifically, well that number is even lower.

It can be more than challenging trying to balance childcare, COVID-19 prevention (hey, Delta), and work. It's hard enough not worrying about whether your kid's school will cancel in-person classes or shut down altogether while facing the not-so-usual growing pains of children and teens who are forced to live in whatever phase of a pandemic we're in right now. (I mean, is it really post-pandemic? Is it halfway done or just beginning? And what's "normal" about this "new" environment?)

Moms, we feel your pain.

Keke Palmer is easily one of our favorite tell-it-like-it-is celebrities. From her up close and personal revelation of her battle with adult acne to doing it for the culture at the MET Gala to admitting she's "sorry to this man," Keke is known to give it to you straight, no chaser. And it's that commitment to being unapologetic in telling her truth that draws others to her like the light that she is.

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.
