Keri Hilson Channels Emotions on Third Album

Keri Hilson

Fresh from her European tour, Keri Hilson made a stop at “106 & Park,” where she was recognized for her work to help improve kids’ lives through education with the Get Schooled campaign.

“That’s so special,” said the blonde bombshell upon receiving the “Get Schooled” award. “It’s not that I feel obligated, but these are things that I love to do. I come from a family of educators. It means a lot for me to be able to do it. It’s like works of the heart.”

Miss Keri also revealed that she’s back in the studio working on her third album. “There’s some people in the world that aren’t gon’ like this album coming from me,” she warned. “As I was experiencing the world, there were things that I was also experiencing on a personal front, and in my music it’s coming out. There’s a specific few people who ain’t gon’ like to listen to this album. Very emotional, I’ll say that.”

The album is awaiting a release date while she decides whether to release another single off her current project. “You guys let me know whether you want to see another single off of No Boys Allowed,” she told the audience. “We’re still trying to figure out ‘All the Boys,’ ‘Buyou’… We’re trying to figure out if we want to release another single or move on to the third, but I’m always in the studio.”

    This isn’t the first time that Keri’s said her next album will be emotional. Since her last album, I don’t know whether I can take her seriously again.

    What happened to her? I remember she was huge with that song with Kanye West and Ne-Yo, but then I never heard from her again. Well she had some explicit video on WorldStarHipHop called “Love The Way You F*** Me” where she was popping her p**** for dear life so I’m guessing things never really worked out….

    @Mikey,

    She’s been around since the Kanye & Ne-Yo song, she never left. She also had a song after “The Way You Love Me” (the pussy popping song) called “Pretty Girl Rock” which was a huge hit. You must not be a BIG FAN of hers, its not a big deal just wanted to let you know that she’s been around in a big way after that Kanye & Ne-Yo song.

    @ASDF, Well i see u want to take it there. ciara unfortunately hasnt even made it to the 150,000 mark in record sales of Basic Instinct and Fantasy ride is sitting at 193k. OUCH. Atleast keri sold more than that her first week and has been able to release more singles. Her label hasnt given up on her like Ciara. Lets just leave it at that

    Uhh Reply:

    @Really Tho, Has Keri sold 7 million albums worldwide? Does Keri have a #1 Hot 100 single? Does Keri have a #1 album? A Grammy?

    Yeah, Ciara does.

    Ciara is way above Keri in everyway. DONT bring Ci’s name up because you will LOSE.

    @Uhh,

    I’m a CiCi fan and Keri fan .. but let’s be real. Ciara has a Grammy because of a music video that wasn’t hers – it was Missy Elliott’s song.

    [Reply]

    Really Tho Reply:

    @Uhh, Lose? really? It is losing when u go from selling 3 times platinum to selling 37,000 your first week. Do u know how many artists i can name that have grammys that are nobodies now? Grammys dont mean shit unless u can maintain but sorry Ciara cant maintain her career to save her life. And ciaras grammy is not hers its Missy Elliotts. Nobody liked that song because of ciara they liked it cause it was Missy smh.

    I am kind of disappointed with the way the singles from “No Boys Allowed” were handled. I feel like “One Night Stand” and “Lose Control” could’ve been monster hits on urban radio but once she released them they just slipped into oblivian. The videos for both those songs were sexy too; especially “Lose Control.” As for her 3rd album, I’m excited but I just don’t want it to be rushed. I’ll always support Keri. Lastly, it’s a good look for her to be recognized for helping the youth and you can tell she’s excited to get an award for that.

    @Kyle, I definitely agree with you No Boys Allowed. Is a great album. But I think her team dropped the ball on which singles to put out. I think if she would have put the right singles out at the right time She would have pushed more albums out instead of rushing.

    [Reply]

    A.Dre Reply:

    @Kyle, You are right. Keri’s singles were all good songs, but promotion was lacking so they got no type of airplay. I think she needs to scrap the idea of another single and move on to that third album. If she takes her time and perfects that one and promotion is on point like it was with the first album, she’ll be just fine.

    Sweety, hang it up Flatscreen. You’re done, no one is checking for you. Its all about Rihanna right now. You’re albums dont sell and your label is wasting their money with you. Stick to behind the scenes.

    Randy Reply:

    @TeamRihanna, so she should just stay home cry and give up on her life because you like rihanna better? is that the message you send people in life? let me ask, what do you do with your life that makes you so special? What company are you ceo of that makes puts you in a position to tell people to quit what they’re doing because you dont think they’re the best? what have you done with your life?

    Cordiah Reply:

    @TeamRihanna, I agree with @Randy. What have you done to tell someone else that they are less than what they are? Either you’re a complete idiot or you think I am to believe that it is all about Rihanna. True, she is a talented young lady who has become a star. However, it is Keri who has penned more hits for many artists (including Rihanna) and her fans have always been wondering about her music. She doesn’t have to sing all the time, she writes too. You couldn’t possibly be a Rihanna fan bashing another artist. I am just not now getting into Rihanna’s music, and I do like her now, but you don’t see me bashing other artists just to put Rihanna on a pedastal. Shame on you, grow up, live and learn.

  13. Really Tho

    Im definately disappointed that One Night Stand and Lose Control werent smash hits on the charts especially One Night Stand that song should have been #1 on Billboard r&b/hiphop for sure but sometimes things just dont work out. Keri is an extremely talented artist but I think for now she should just take a break then come back but then i think if she comes back haters are gonna come out the woodwork and call her a Has-Been smh. Yall need to understand she works her ass off she deserves all the success but these haters are just bitter and hate to see her succeed. its always Beyonce and Rihanna and yall act like there isnt room for anyone else. Its sickening really. What a cold world.

    @Really Tho, Its funny how you say that her last two singles weren’t smash hits. Those songs were FLOPS! They didnt even make it on the Top 100. Not even Top 20 on the R&B Charts, pure FAILURES.

    Im very CONFUSED by Keri. Her 1st album was a good look and a really great 1st effort from a new artist. But this 2nd album didnt step it up from there! She only had a few good songs on there and the rest fell into the filler category. ALSO after she did the, “The Way You F*** Me” video (BAD MOVE!) – I think she left us all confused. I almost get the feeling she’s trying too hard. Trying to compete with Rihannas and Beyonces of the world and not just being herself. But since then she seems to have just been missing altogether. SO with that said – I hope with her next album, she can revive what looks to be turning into a downward spiral.

  26. Jrizzel88

    C’mon Keri…let’s make this one count! “In A perfect World” was amazing. “No Boys Allowed” was good but not as amazing. “Beautiful Mistake” should have been the single that followed “One Night Stand”. “Lose Control” was too Rihanna-ish so people weren’t feeling it for you. This album should be less conceptual than NBA and just more of good music like IAPW. Less “Pretty Girl Rocks” & “Lose Control” more “Slow Dance” & “Energy”, works best for you!

    Everyone calls Keri a flop but her life still shits on yours by miles u would die to be in her shoes because all yall are gonna be nobodys for the rest of your lives especially since your hating all the time. #Fact

    NBA was a good album…but the stans of other artist couldn’t deal and shaded it constantly. The label poorly pushed the lead single which threw things off out the gate and set the tone for how they would mishandle the entire project. NBA was a failure in a lot of ways, except musically. Keri hasn’t had a bad album, just no support.

    As for her styling, she needs to quit with the freelancers and hire a capable stylist within her budget. This particular look wasn’t bad at all, some of the previous poster just have poor eyes, but we’ve seen a lot worse from Keri in the past.

    and one more thing…comparing another artist to your fav for the sake of a ki ki and a retweet doesn’t make your artist look any better, it just proves they attract pathetic fans.

    If a song is good, it’s good. How can you say the album is amazing then sayshe released songs at the wrong time? There is no timing to a good song. Bottom line people wasnt feeling her this go round. The only song that did anything was PGR. All her other singles flopped! LOL @ her talking about releasing another single. The album is done! The emotional talk…she said the same thing about NBA. Next!
