Promising fans to be one the best records of her career, Keri Hilson partners with legendary R&B songwriter/producer Babyface. The pair got together to work up a stunner for her third studio album, slated to drop later this year. Face’s most noted works includes penning hit songs for the likes of legendary R&B acts Boyz II Men, Toni Braxton and TLC. The ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ songstress gushes that “dreams (really do) come true” when collaborating with the 53-year-old (who looks amazing for 53 I must add).

“Beysus” takes the wheel during a random photoshoot, which she posted to her Instagram last night. Beyoncé drives a UPS truck, ahead of her ‘Mrs. Carter Show’ world tour, which kicks off in Belgrade, Serbia, on April 15th.
With the way her tour has been selling, Beyoncé is set to dominate those forthcoming Forbes lists soon. She’s reigning in those cheques but poor Keri Hilson is still reeling from online attacks years after she allegedly sniped at the singer in her ‘Turnin’ Me On’ remix. I hate to say it but you don’t mess with her fans, and when you do, you subject yourself to that treatment for life. More deets below.
Ready for the ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ songstress to return? Me too. Keri Hilson‘s new album will be a melting pot of genres, according to the singer. Keri chatted with Rap-Up TV about the project, confirming that the record will be a blend of previous albums ‘In a Perfect World’ and ‘No Boys Allowed’. She says: “I didn’t want to lose the fans that do love what I have done in the past, but there is growth that has happened. I’m all about blending the worlds of pop and hip-hop and R&B all in a pot.”
For the project, she has enlisted Planet VI, as well as Timbaland and Polow Da Don, who were executive producers on previous albums. She also hints that Kanye West could also appear as a collaborator. We shall soon see if Keri can actually rebound from her Nigerian flop concert back in November. It seems she really is ready to slay us with this new album, and she’s going to need to slay us hard, given that the woman she despises is set to dominate this year.
For most of 2012, Keri Hilson has kept herself from the spotlight, recording her new album and filming her acting debut alongside Vin Diesel. When can we expect the first single? Find out below!
Messy! Kelly ‘flatnote’ Rowland was joined on stage by Keri Hilson and Adam Lambert at last night’s ‘Vh1 Divas: Diva Dance Party’ ceremony. They put forth a Donna Summer tribute but Kelly failed to do Ms Summer some justice on the vocal tip.
Keri Hilson continues to speak on the heartbreaking route that her new album will take direction from.
“The worst breakup I’ve ever had is the reason for the tone of my third album that I’m still writing, still going through” she says, and referring to the offering as “some of my best worst yet.” Is she really expecting to be the new Adele this era?
Melody Thornton attended the Elle magazine Women in Music gala in Hollywood last night, and all we saw were nipples!
Nipple-baring in public is fast becoming the shock tactic trend of the 21st century, although it’s a fashion statement most parents would not want their daughters to divulge. Out of all the urban-pop chicks this year, Rihanna is the one that’s been the most consistent with her nipple-baring. And more and more pop chicks are popping out to join the club. Notice how many of them have underwhelming music careers. Sure, an “accidential” nip slip will certainly get you more inches inside a newspaper column but not do much else to boost album sales. Just say no to sheer if you can’t do it in a classy way.
Here, we look at some of our most recent TRANSPARENT offenders.
Songstress Keri Hilson lays down vocals for ‘Freedom Ride’!
The cut, lifted from the ‘Think Like a Man’ soundtrack, is a clappy number layered with piano melodies and some electric strings. On the song, the singer puts on the emotional tap while lamenting on the loss of her relationship (to another woman). Before the split, they travelled on the freedom train of sorts making a pact not to let it ruin what they had. Turns out, she stuck to her end of the deal, and well, he didn’t, leaving the singer absolutely heart broken. ‘Freedom Ride’ is a very solid track and her vocals have really picked up over the years. The musical compilation will be available from April 10th, while the movie hits the big screen on April 20th. Take a listen to Keri’s heartfelt track about lost love, after the jump!
Trey Songz brought out his good pal Kelly Rowland for his Anticipation II tour in Atlanta this week. They performed Rowland’s Grammy-nominated hit single ‘Motivation’.
Cheeky Kelly copped a feel of Trey’s package during their little stage liaison. Following his show, the crooner did a Backstage Lounge interview where he talked about that very Atlanta gig. A gig which also saw him bring out Keri Hilson. Proceed for footage and exclusive deets about his new album and its anticipated lead single.
Keri Hilson has been rather quiet lately. Tis a shame that. As I find her Beyonce-shading antics rather entertaining. But anyway, she recently spoke to The BoomBox about the follow-up to 2010′s ‘No Boys Allowed’.
Keri has been in the studio recording the new album, which is slated to drop later this year. Alongside preparing to release new music, the 29-year-old has also been tapped to star in a new Vin Diesel movie. Check out what she had to say about the concepts adopted for her new album below.
