Keri Hilson Readies New Album for 2013

Keri Hilson remained relatively quiet this year, but the “Pretty Girl” is set to make her return in 2013. Miss Keri has a new album and movie on the way.

She has been in the studio recording her third LP, the follow-up to her 2010 album No Boys Allowed. “I’m looking to release a new album at some point in 2013,” she told VH1 backstage at “VH1 Divas.”

She is working through the holidays and early next year to finish the project, and hopes to release something in the first quarter of the year.

“My fans have been super patient with me. I took a little break, and I’m back,” said the Atlanta singer-songwriter.

In addition to music, she is set to make her acting debut alongside Vin Diesel in the sci-fi film The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.

“Acting is just as much a part of the things that inspire me and the things that keep me creatively juicy, just as much as music is. I’d love to have a lasting acting career,” said Keri, who was a theater major in college.
