Keri Hilson released her sophomore album No Boys Allowed only a few short months ago, but the wheels are already turning for a follow-up. The sexy singer revealed that she’s about to commence work on her as-yet-untitled third LP, with plans to hit the studio with producer Polow Da Don next month.
“I’m actually recording, going back into the studio in March just to see what happens with Polow Da Don,” Miss Keri exclusively told Rap-Up.com. “I’ve given it some thought, but I’m definitely not going to rush it. I never want to be in that position, so there’s no date or anything. I’m going pretty deep on the second album, anyway.”
The songstress plans to see No Boys Allowed through until the end, with a tour slated for April and hopes of taking Jessie J and Miguel on the road. But with features on her sophomore album including Kanye West, J. Cole, Rick Ross, and more, she isn’t counting out big collabos for album number three.
“Bruno Mars and I have talked about it,” she said of her potential duets, name-checking another singer on her wish list. “Cee Lo is one that I would like to have happen.”
The singer-songwriter is currently promoting her latest album, which spawned the singles “Pretty Girl Rock” and “Breaking Point.” For her next single, she’s leaning toward “One Night Stand” featuring Chris Brown, though she hopes that the John Legend-penned “All the Boys” will eventually become a single.
