Keri Hilson Talks Apocalyptic Dreams, ‘Emotional’ Third Album

Keri Hilson

Keri Hilson sits down with her therapist, or rather an interviewer from Fuse, for “an incredibly intimate interview.” The “Pretty Girl Rock” singer recalls being fired from her job at a restaurant, the last lie she told, the body part she’s most proud of (get your mind out of the gutter), and the worst breakup she’s ever had, which inspired her upcoming third album.

“That’s why it’s midtempo,” explains Keri of the follow-up to 2010’s No Boys Allowed. “That’s why it’s emotional and that’s why it will probably be some of my best work yet.”

She also shares some of her least favorite dreams. “I have these recurring dreams about the end of the world and they’re very, very vivid and very realistic,” she said. “There’s always the sky going black and you’re watching it happen. Another dream it was like a flood. Another dream is there were so many people killing people in the streets, women and children included. … Another time it was UFOs and they were fighting above us and we just knew that this means it’s over.”

Journey into the mind of Keri Hilson.

    Admittedly, she’s had enough “midtempo” songs that haven’t got her anywhere. I love her, she’s one of my favorite artists, but she’s got to put out something that’ll appeal to a wider crowd so that she can stay (become?) relevant.

    @yo tambien, so that you can call her a sellout? lol theres no pleasing you people. when they stay true to who their sound you say theyre boring, then when they change it you call them sellouts.

    @yo tambien, si no es lo suficientemente famosa la culpa no es de ella, sino de la compañía de discos, que os quede bien claro.
    NBA es un disco que si lo separas, y das cada una de las canciones a cada una de las cantantes de moda actuales y lo usan como singles, yo te aseguro que hubieran vendido sueltas, lo que ella ha sacado con todo el disco.

    @yo tambien, it’s not her fault not being ‘relevant’, it’s just her record label fault.
    NBA is a great album, if you take all the songs and gives them to nowadays relevant singers and they use that song as single, i swear that they’d achieve at least the numbers she had with the whole album in every single song.

    @maybe, Agreed. It’s really hard for her to catch a break in the world of Beys, RiRis, Nickis, and Adeles.

    something seems really different about her this time around. She is less cocky, and more vunerable, and likable. Her spirits seemed more friendlier, I think she has been through it with the Beyonce crap.

    Doc Reply:

    @[email protected], To be honest, I’ve followed her entire career. She’s always been like this. I actually think now she’s a bit more guarded because of the hate (Which had no basis). I think the media has painted a picture. If you look at old interviews of 2009 and her vlog (Before her 1st album), you’ll LOVE her. She’s funny and smart.

  31. SayWhat

    First of all, there’s no comparison between this broad and Beyoncé! The reason why I don’t like Keri is because she’s so cocky like she has enough accomplishments to be that way. Yes, she’s a paid songwriter, but other than that what has she done to be extra confident??? I’ll wait……………..& if it weren’t for Ne-Yo, she wouldn’t have had one hit, so BYE girl! She is no one who should be throwing shade!

  35. yooooooooo

    these hating ass wannabee keri’s make me laugh.. you guys need to just sit down and stop hating! if you dont like her, why the hell would you be commenting on an article which is ONLY about keri. the jealousy is so DUMB and im guessing a lot of keri fans are sick of yo’ hating asses; seriously get a life and comment on things you like or places where you have something positive to say (which is probably a rarity considering the ways you all comment about keri)
    Keri is amazing and will always be a breathtaking singer/songwriter,, who sticks true to her sound and doesn’t venture off into dance pop songs which the majority of artists have done to become successful,, or be fraudgulent by stealing songs and/or lyrics

    Why are there so many avid Beyonce fans on here? It must be hard livin’ a double life, huh? One minute you tellin’ other people not to hate on B, but you strolled ya tail over to this site to hate on another artist who Beyonce don’t got not beef with?

    No wonder Beyonce called her fans out. Some of ya’ll really need to chill cause you the main ones “Pittin’ Black women against each other.”

    Please listen to your queen and “Tone it down.” The world can handle more than one black artist…without all the cattiness and
    b!tch!ness.

    I like keri she is a great singer and entertainer! I can’t wait for the thrid album. I hope her label markets this one better than the last one. Releasing Breaking Point as the first single was a horrible mistake. That song shouldn’t have been released at all.

    [Reply]

    Doc Reply:

    @LALA, well she wanted to be taken seriously because people labeled her as “pop” or a fluke. It seems like no matter what she does she gets criticized. there are some people we just love to hate.

    I think she received a lot of the blatant hate after the “supposed” Beyonce/Ciara diss. That has to be the only reason. She’s actually a very talented singer, and songwriter. Produces great music… I just dk
