Keri Hilson Confirms That Her Long-Overdue Third Album Is Finished
The last time we heard from Keri Hilson, she was being paid $100,000 to perform in an empty arena in Dallas. The R&B diva can expect a bigger crowd the next time she hits the stage with news that her long-overdue third LP is finished. “Playing the album for Mom & Dad,” she tweeted yesterday (May 31). “One of the songs made Mom cry.” There’s no word yet on a release date yet, but it’s good to know the project is complete.
As for the direction of the album, the only clue we have is a snippet Timbaland posted on Instagram in March. That track sounds like a ballsy club-banger, so fingers crossed we get another “The Way You Love Me” or “Lose Control.” Keri released her last LP No Boys Allowed way back in 2010. It delivered the platinum-selling bop “Pretty Girl Rock,” but further singles failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. See her tweets below.
LEAK: I have not officially released anything. But f*čk what you heard, new music coming soon…
