After spending 2012 out of the spotlight, Keri Hilson is gearing up for a big year. While attending Gillette’s “Kiss & Tell” experiment at the Santa Monica Pier, the blonde bombshell shared her plans for 2013 starting with her third album.
“I took a personal and professional break. I didn’t release any music,” Miss Keri told Rap-Up TV. “I’m ready now. I’m back in the studio and I’m super inspired. Songs and ideas are just gushing out of me.” While the follow-up to 2010’s No Boys Allowed has a title, she wouldn’t reveal it just yet. However, she has been in the studio with Planet VI (formerly known as Rock City) and Timbaland and Polow Da Don, who are once again executive producers.
She describes the new material as “In a Perfect World… meets No Boys Allowed with a little twist.” You can expect more bangers like “Turnin’ Me On” and “Knock You Down.” “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,” she said. “I’m all about blending the worlds of pop and hip-hop and R&B all in a pot.”
And can we look forward to another collaboration with Kanye West? “I spent some time with Kanye. It’s very, very probable and possible,” teased Keri, while sending a message to the father-to-be. “Don’t get too wrapped up in baby world that you forget about Keri Hilson ’cause we make great music together.”
As for Mr. West, she thinks fatherhood will suit him well. “I know Kanye’s gonna be a great father. He’s a very kind-hearted person, very caring. I look forward to seeing that side of him.”
