Hot Topic: Is The World Ready For A New Keri Hilson Album?

Published: Sunday 5th Jan 2014 by David


Four years.

Despite maintaining a very present ‘presence’ at the forefront of R&B’s scene, four years have passed since the release of Keri Hilson‘s last studio album, ‘No Boys Allowed.’

Back then, the double Platinum status of its lead single ‘Pretty Girl Rock‘ and the 102,000 units sold in its first week paled in comparison to digits moved by the likes of Keyshia Cole, Beyonce and Alicia Keys months/years earlier.

However, with the gap between today’s R&B haves and have-nots wider than ever before, ‘Boys’ sales now place Hilson in a small group of ‘Urban’ belles whose labels can depend on them to pull in a profit. So, baring recent releases by Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Brandy in mind, we ask…

Is the world ready for a new Keri album?

…better yet…

Are you looking forward to a new Keri  album?

  8. Jamie January 5, 2014

  9. Jessie January 5, 2014

    The world? No. Some American fans of urban music, maybe.

  10. Ciara is everything January 5, 2014

    Tbh yes Keri makes amazing music im here for it.

  11. Ciara is everything January 5, 2014

    The hive won’t be able to handle Keris slayage.

  12. Kyle January 5, 2014

    Keri ‘fans’ making this about Beyonce LOL.

  13. Ciara is everything January 5, 2014

    Ciara> Keri> Bey> Rih

  14. Keriheart January 5, 2014

    The hive is always pressed by talent @ Ciara is everything. You know Beyodelce stole from cici. Ugh she is a damn thief!!!

  15. Kyle January 5, 2014

    Keri can’t even have her own post without Beyonce being mentioned, even by her own fans. She really dug herself a hole there didn’t she?

  16. Keriheart January 5, 2014

    No way!!!! Keri > Ciara 🙂 I like cici but when is the last time she had a platinum single or gold album? 🙁

  17. Keriheart January 5, 2014

    F** the hive started it and been stalking Keri for 5 years. Look at the first comment f** lol

  18. Keri Krew Kween January 5, 2014

    Dead @ trolls posing as Keri fans to start a stan war. Y’all need to find something productive to do. I’ve been ready for Keri’s next album. I’m really excited to see h** she’s grown as an artist, she’s been working on this album forever. I still blast In A Perfect World, on of the best Urban albums released in a while imo.

  19. Keri Krew Kween January 5, 2014

    They obviously aren’t Keri fans but bored trolls trying to start a stan war.

  20. Keriheart January 5, 2014

    F** you cannot speak for me I stan for Keri always b**** IAPW is classic Tell Him The Truth, Slow Dance, Make Love and Intuition are my favorites. NBA slayed too. One Night Stand still gets play till this day b**** The Hive brought her up first as usual they stay pressed over QUEEN keri anymore concerns?

  21. christinastherealtalent January 5, 2014

    Well in terms of the beyhive, like mother like children. 95% of the interviews Bey does, she sounds illiterate and uneducated just like her ignorant fan base does!

  22. Yea ok January 5, 2014

    I’m a member of the HIVE and I enjoy Keri’s music. I have purchased all her solo projects to date. I’m looking forward to it. I don’t get the stan wars. There is room for everyone in the business. I buy music based on the art. Not necessarily an image. Beyonce and Keri are both talented and successful in their own ways.

    4 years have passed. Keri seems very happy right now. I can’t wait to see how that translates to her album.

  23. Yazmine January 5, 2014

    Why is this Keri fan talking about Beyonce though? Beyonce never came for your fav it was the other way so why are you pressed?

    A real keri fan would want to focus on their fav not have her post become about BEYONCE

  24. Keri Krew Kween January 5, 2014

    Slow Dance, Make Love, Alienated, Return the Favor, and Energy are my favs from IAPW

    Pretty Girl Rock, Loose Control/Let Me Down, Toy Soldier, and Wont Be Long are my favs from NBA

  25. GILBERTO January 5, 2014

    Keri Hilson will punish the world with another album. Nobody is here checking her non vocals, non dance ability, non stage presence. She writers her music? LOL. Nobody gives a f*** about it, she can’t sell her s*** to anyone. Nobody wants to record a song written by her. That’s a fact.
    I can’t even say that her career is over ’cause she didn’t have one to start with.

  26. Keri Krew Kween January 5, 2014

    Not y’all trying to turn this into a Beyonce bash party. This is about Keri. Both are talented and make great music.

  27. C.milian_lover January 5, 2014

    @Greg a hive just had to start some s*** on a Keri post. Nothing new here!! -___-
    Keri is an amazing artist and she’s been the underdog because of b*******. I’m anticipating her new album because she knows how to craft a song! I need a Keri and Milian collabo ASAP!!!<3

  28. C.milian_lover January 5, 2014

    @Gilberto you need to stfu and stop with your b*******. I hate Beyonce and the hive because of b****** like you! Go away you pest!!!

  29. Just Sayin January 5, 2014

    Nobody cares besides her 10 fans.

  30. 2bad2bme January 5, 2014

    I’m ready Keri Hilson always make some feel good music

  31. Monstarebel January 5, 2014

    Love her!!!!!!!

  32. Bye Felicia January 5, 2014

    The hive has destroyed yet another artists post!!! Yall are gross ewwww leave Keri alone.

  33. Rosie January 5, 2014

    Will she embark on another Walmart parking lot tour to promote this? Or maybe she’ll upgrade to Target.

  34. Shikha January 5, 2014

    Honestly, she composes great music, she has the looks, and she obviously has major potential to dominate the charts (if thats what she’s focusing on, cause personally sales are not everything). In A Perfect World was definitely a classic, it was so intimate, soulful, and real, I just hope her team would be smart about her singles choices, I applaud her for not rushing. therefore, she defintely should pick the right song. (Hope its not another club banger -__-)
    so yeah, I guess her next album will absolutely be in my wish list!

  35. Keri Krew Kween January 5, 2014

    Now what was that about “Cant sing, cant dance”?

  36. Shikha January 5, 2014

    Oh and I also think she should be a little more focused on her career now that she had her time off. just saying!

  37. Haha January 5, 2014

    Tbh nobody ain’t gonna buy it only like 50,000.

  38. Listen sis… January 5, 2014

    Buuuuut guess what guys? Beyonce will always be on top so whatever you guys say, is irrelevant. Ha, bye.

  39. Reasonable Logics January 5, 2014

    It really seems like the lesser Stan bases are always overzealous and not in tune with reality when it comes to the likes of acts like Ciara,Keri,Kelly Rowland,and Ashanti.

    It’s been four years and the last album hasn’t sold 500,000 in the Us yet.Keri doesn’t even have a big fan base.
    In her absence she has been featured on singles that barely cracked the Top 40 on R&B charts,so you know they did terrible on hot 100.
    If anything Keri will do the average R&B chicks number…The album will debut in the range of 50K-100K,tumble down the chart and disappear. While her single(s),may hit the top 10 on R&B charts and maybe top 20 on the hot 100 if she’s lucky.Overall in the Us,her album will probably do 300k-400K Us;maybe 400K for additional world sales=equals flop

  40. Mr. GQ January 5, 2014

    I am ready for another Keri Hilson album! I just want her to pick the right singles this time and promote/go on tour. She has the right tools to do well in today’s market. People will always support great music no matter who sings it.

  41. LA LA January 5, 2014

    I swear the people that comment on this website is seriously annoying. Always arguing for no reason. TGJ you guys seriously a lot of sick minded people that view this site.

    Anyways, I’m not much of a fan of Keri Hilson but I am opened to see what this project brings.

  42. mary(realbeystan) January 5, 2014

    Not going to lie… Miss Keri is a good singer and has many good songs. Her ego is what messed her up. For example, she should have did what miley Cyrus did! Miley set the record straight as soon as she could. The bottom line is that beyonce has loyal fans….them same fans buy keri music but when you diss her any say noting like you don’t care. this is what becomes of you. To discredit beyonce as a songwriter is wrong….Keri wrote many of her songs with a a team as well as beyonce. The fact to songwriting is if you put one word in a song you get a song credit,,, thatsnot just for beyonce thats for any artist who has that power to do so. ask keri songwriting money is better.

  43. Its me again January 5, 2014

    I think she should start with a love song. Cause her song ‘Make Love’ was EVERYTHING!!

  44. Mark111 January 5, 2014

    Sevyn Streeter is everything Keri COULD HAD been. If you’re a song writer, why would you dis the artist you write for? I will say that one of the two ladies she dissed career fell to s*** right after that song.

  45. Lola January 5, 2014

    Hopefully she’ll not repeat the same mistake again by naming her album no boys allowed. I mean come on keri. You can do better. U never have classics with these kinds of titles.

  46. Lola January 5, 2014

    Anyway, yes ill definitely purchase her album. Even the physical copy. I trust her vision on music. She is also a lovely person who works hard.

  47. Vee January 5, 2014

    I don’t understand why Keri Hilson fans would have the audacity to be mad at Beyonce. Don’t take Keris own mistake out on the person she tried it with.

  48. JER January 5, 2014

    Ready? Did you say ready? Ready for what? Ch…

  49. Shanice January 5, 2014

    Lol at Keri’s fanbase or ANYONE’S fanbase for that matter.
    To let someone’s fans make you dislike an artist is pathetic and shows you are weak and can’t think for yourselves.
    I don’t like Justin Bieber not because of his fans but because he can’t sing or rap worth ish.
    Anyways, support your faves but don’t be delusional.
    Keri isn’t going to slay anything unless she becomes like Rihanna and just follows the trends that’s topping the charts.

    *listening to Big Maybelle “Candy”*

  50. FutureCIARA January 5, 2014

    I still play my NO BOYS ALLOWED! She had some hits on there… TOY SOLDIER was hot!

    And now that Ciara and her are good girlfriends now, I dont mind her stepping back on the scene, all shade aside….. The girl does write good music

  51. King January 5, 2014

    I’m ready. I actually feel Keri is extremely talented but the Beyonce thing really hurt her career, before that she was on the up and up. I really like her music though and she’s a decent songwriter.

  52. Flywiththestars January 5, 2014

    She will never bounce back from the Beyonce scandal, but someone somewhere will support her endeavors. She makes great music.

  53. GREEKGOD January 5, 2014

    Her first album was good but NO BOYS ALLOWED will always be my baby. Toy Soldier, Beautiful Mistake, All The Boys, Breaking Point, One Night Stand… LOVE THEM.

  54. FutureCIARA January 6, 2014

    Yaaaz @Greekgod

    Those are the cuts!

  55. XtinaTheDiva January 6, 2014

    Yes, bring it on!

  56. B4REAL02 January 6, 2014

    Yes, I’m looking forward to Keri. There’s enough room for more than one person in the music biz. So, bring it Mrs Keri Baby!!

  57. kim January 7, 2014

    She actually doesn’t write most of her music and was only part of a writing team(The Clutch) that wrote the songs she takes full claim of writing.

  58. cindy January 21, 2014

    keri has yet to put out a classic song let alone a classic album.

    keri writes most of her music? i think you need to go back and check that. she is a co-writer.

    keri made a little noise but she was never a force and definitely isn’t one now.
