Keri Hilson is still cooking up her third studio album, however the R&B belle took a brief break to whip up something quite different.
Hitting Instagram, the ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ singer shared a snap of herself making renown African dish “Fufu”. She wrote with post:
“making fufu is a reaaal workout! gotta put your back into it”
The pic will do little to quell speculation that Hilson is currently dating Congolese NBA star Serge Ibaka. That said, given that our main concern is the music rather than the romance, we’re ready for Ms. Keri to serve up that new LP. She recently told That Grape Juice that the as yet untitled set will feature production from longtime collaborators Timbaland and Polow Da Don.
Peep some of our favourite Keri moments below because we feel like it…
Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past. So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.
Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits. Today, we recap Keri Hilson’s ‘In A Perfect World’ – her critically acclaimed debut LP… (more…)
While some may choose to deny it, Keri Hilson really is R&B’s go to girl when it comes to churning out commercial hits.
Indeed, while combined sales of her LPs say little of her skill and talent, their first week digits and supporting singles make her one of the only ‘new girls’ from the genre to enjoy Platinum status, with ‘Turnin’ Me On’ and ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ selling over 1 million units and ‘Knock You Down‘ surpassing the 2 million mark.
Now, in what should see her nab a few more Urban hits, she readies the launch of her third studio album with a single ready to launch in the next week.
Keri Hilson stepped out in style at the Santa Monica Pier yesterday, helping Gilltette launch its national ‘Kiss & Tell‘ experiment to prove that ladies do prefer a clean shaven kiss to a rough stubbled one.
With results from the test ready to be published on Valentine’s Day, Keri spent the day with couples rocking Vahan jewellery and posing for a number of snaps before she continues work on her third studio album, which we’re hoping touches down later on this year.
So, until that happens, lock lips with Ms. Hilson below… (more…)
