Keri Hilson is talking new album details, and our pals over at XXL Mag got the exclusive!

Arriving at the publication to raise awareness for HIV/AIDs, the Urban Pop Princess spilled exciting new information on her third studio album….and Kanye West’s contribution to it.

Good news below…

With over 1 million copies of 2010’s ‘Pretty Girl Rock‘ sold, Hilson said of her new album:

“It’s my comeback. It has to be. I feel confident about it. I like it. That’s all I can control. How it feels to me. It feels like I am gearing up to be back. I’m really excited for my fans. They’ve held me down. I almost feel like I didn’t take a break because they held me down. They still cared about me. They stuck by me and supported me through it when they had no clue what I was doing or why I wasn’t releasing music. But I really do appreciate that.”

When asked if she’d worked with Kanye West (‘Knock You Down’) on the release, she admitted:

“I already have throughout my break. I’ve actually worked with him. I can’t say much about it, but it was awesome. He’s a genius. I really, really enjoyed working with him.”

On her new single:

“I never know what’s going to happen. I could go to the studio tonight—and I will—I could top it. I might feel more confident about a record than I do after it. Even if we think we chose a single, anything could happen. I just want to make sure. People have been waiting my re-arrival. I just want to make sure I give them my best. I don’t want to rush. I don’t want to release something that I don’t feel wholeheartedly about. I feel that I am there. I just want to be sure. I want to take my time and make sure this comeback is just that.”

With ‘No Boys Allowed’ spawning many a fan favorite and an undeniable smash hit single, here’s to a new album that does even better.

As far as material goes, there’s no doubt Keri’s cooking up her best work to date, but what we’re most excited about is its roll out- especially if its anything like ‘Allowed‘s and sees her score radio play on Urban and Top 40 formats.

Here’s to its success!!

      its arguable whether she’s a flop or not, since she has a gold album and numerous platinum singles. And even if you label her a flop, she has 25 million dollars. Oh and care to explain why your’e bothering to comment on an article solely about her?

      She just have to release something that will satsify her fans and help her gain new fans having kanye on a single doesnt guarantee her a hit after all kanye album with all the hype projections on building not sure how much it costs him but I am sure his first week sell didnt cover the costs he had good beats good lyrics and a lot of screaming. with recesion people aint buying music for who u a or who u have collaborated with if u have a strong fanbase best way try to please them coz they are the consumers. Good Luck Keri I hope u ait expecting a lot unless u a Tyler Swift black people dont by music they share leaked links

      How is she arrogant? to me she seems like one of the mot down to earth, real artists out there. She’s been working her ass off for 13 years and deserves success. I respect your opinion and i could be wrong, but i dont understand how she seems arrogant.

      If Kelly and Ciara are more worldwide recognized than her, then why are their albums sales so low? They can’t even go gold. Like be real 37k, 60-65k isn’t saying much. At least Keri has sense enough to have a plan before releasing a single. Ciara and Kelly release flop singles and label them as buzz singles, ha! You people need to think before you comment. Ciara’s album comes out in a few weeks, and the whole world already got it! Have a few seats and think about what you just said _/_/_/

        Kelly and Ciara are more famous than Keri Hilson. Whether they can sell NOW or not is irreleavant their stars, althiugh faded are bigger than Keris. Kelly was in one of the biggest girl groups of all time alongside Beyonce, has been on Talent shows ranging from the UK, The US and Austrailia and has had big hits in Europe and Ciara had an era of smashes with songs like Goodies and 1 2 step which are still played across music channels. Keri has never had it that big shes only known to Urban fans.

I think her music has a sense of ‘realness’ to it, and she actualy has songs that are meaningful. Plus she’s a great songwrited and i think her vocals are amazing as well. very taleneted, full package for sure

      I love those three songs you listed!!! To me, her firstl album is pure brilliance, and the majority of her second album is perfect as well. ‘the way you love me’ is my least favourite track by her, but i understand why she felt the need to make it kinda like a song in time, and thats how she felt at that time. But her album, could’ve certainly done without it because ‘breaking point’, ‘toy soldier’, and ‘all the boys’ are amazing tracks; that showcase her vocals and lyrical depth

    I’m not a huge Keri fan but I admit I do crank some of her songs. I just think her first album was so much better than her last. Hopefully we do get a single sometime this year

      SAAME!!! still play it ther whole way through lol its got that 90’s/early 2000’s sounding R&B style with heaps of ballads and slow jams, and it sounds really soulful. I think thats why i love it so much. And i think it sounds much more organic and authentic in comparison with her second album. I still love ‘no boys allowed’ but i cant front her first album is better.

    Not a big fan of Keri but I am interested to see what shes been cooking up. Who knows she might give Ciara and Kelly a run for their money. Im just glad to see that R&B is slowly making its way back to mainstream
