Keri Hilson Hints At New Album, Videos

Published: Wednesday 3rd Aug 2011 by Rashad

Though rocking stages on a nationwide trek with Lil’ Wayne in promotion of her sophomore effort ‘No Boys Allowed’, ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ singer Keri Hilson sat down with Billboard.com to reveal she’s already starting work on its successor.   But, while fans may be anxious to know more about her third studio effort, Hilson dished there is still more in store for her current release.

See what Miss Keri Baby had to say about these topics and more after the jump:

Via Billboard.com:

On her new album:

“It [the concept] may actually change, but I think it’s the one. I’m starting conceptually to figure out how I want to bridge the gap between my second and third albums… But even when you’re promoting your album and still releasing singles, you still have to think about your future. You have to prepare because so much goes into it. So I’ve got that little bit of an idea, which is a start.”

On potential next singles:

“We have to narrow it down very, very soon and shoot the video,” Hilson says. “We’re proud of the fact that we have so many options on my albums for singles, but for the next one I really want people to get the concept of the album. I think some of the singles that we’ve chosen so far don’t quite encapsulate the album title and theme.  I straddle the fence between getting the concept out and just having a simple, great, successful song.”

“I believe I’m going to shoot two more videos after “Lose Control.” The single pickers udnermine that I still have a point to get across. There are core records that really do that. I would love to release one or two of those. After “Lose Control,” I’d love to release “All the Boys,” “Buyou,” “Beautiful Mistake”… “Hustler.” We just have to narrow it down and shoot a video for the one we think people will love.”

On shooting her own videos:

“I would love to tell a story and shoot more videos on my own,”.  “I would love to do more accessories. I would love to do a short film-style video…because it’s a real story of single women who are dating. I keep it real. I talk about how we really think and how we really feel. So I think there’s a message to still be had from this project.

  5. LTM August 3, 2011

    Touring with Lil Wayne? Try opening for him. She should take a break with Jason DeRulo.

  8. TYLER August 3, 2011

    LET ME GET YOU BTICHES TOGETHER REAL QUICK

    YALL CALL KERI A FLOP BUT SHE OUTSOLD KELLY ROWLAND 1ST WEEK SALES. IF KELLY DOESNT BEAT KERI HILSON CURRENTLY 301,000K SALES THEN I KNOW SOMETHING

    ANYWAY KERI SHOULD RELEASE BUYOU AND THEN ALL THE BOYS OR HUSTLER FEAT. YOUNG JEEZY AND BUYOU.

    I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE THIRD ALBUM. SHE CAN REALLY BE ON TOP IF THE MARKET HER CORRECTLY

    I GUARANTEE THIS ALBUM WOULD HAVE BEEN GOLD ON ITS WAY TO PLATINUM

    IF LOSE CONTROL WAS THE 1ST SINGLE

    THEN PRETTY GIRL ROCK

    THEN BUYOU

    THEN BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE

    AND FINALLY ALL THE BOYS

  9. BEYONCESAYSWELIKETOPARTY August 3, 2011

    I am really warming up to keri she is finally making the right decisions. please release all the boys keri. you have so much potential girl

  10. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 3, 2011

    Seriously now??Another video???This is going to be the 6th video off of an album that hasn’t even sold 300k worldwide.Since she had a HUGE promotional trail (on the level of Rihanna and Katy Perry, which is shocking) and they released the album on the busiest week of the year, but it still didn’t sell, what makes the label think that another video is going to help her?

  11. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 3, 2011

    SHE IS A FLOP !!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  12. YeaBey Is Schoolin’ Life August 3, 2011

    BUT ALL THE BOYS IS THE S***!!! Only good song on the ALBUM!

  13. MaZ August 3, 2011

    “Bahm Bahm (Do it once again)” would be hot for summer!

  14. Marques August 3, 2011

    God blessed this woman with many, many talents. some you naysayers dont like, but shes still doing the damn thing regaurdless and I wish her the best. IMO, I think she should slow it down a bit and release Hustler or Beautiful Mistake…either way, I LOVE you Keri. God Bless.

  15. Bia August 3, 2011

    FLOP

  16. Beyonce&KeriHilsonFan August 3, 2011

    @asap

    sweety the album is at 315k world wide

  17. Nic August 3, 2011

    This album was not marketed correctly, Lose Control is one of the most radio friendly songs on the album and should have been released first followed by Pretty Girl Rock. As for more album sales I think this album is over with, people are now focused on other artists, I hope she promotes better on her 3rd album

  18. maretha August 3, 2011

    Who cares about that flop b****! I’m sick of her! Sit yo ass down!

  19. CURLY SUE August 3, 2011

  29. jarrett goer August 3, 2011

    her album is better than kelly flopland’s smh, yeah it was a good album , promotion sucked, she should have really released the right singles and not released breaking point as the first single, lose control could have been huge, smh, i luv toy soilder and all the boys, her album is better than kellys and keyshia lastest crap, shes an okay singer, not the best, but far from the worst11

  30. Caytlin Noel August 3, 2011

    K haha yall haterz… why are you even looking at this? it doesnt make sense to me? Keri Hilson is doing these things for herself.. she’s gettin money.. she’s GOT fans… and she has haterz to push her farther to make her better. Dont look, listen, or touch her CD’s or fame.. leave it to the REAL fans to judge Keri’s music.. were the only ones who matter!

  31. JORDAN August 3, 2011

    She needs to let this CD go and release a new one next year like Rihanna used to do.

    Idk i havent really liked her since she’s been blonde.

  32. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    Miscarried baby, we aint ready for them out of breath vocals and cracks. Go away.

  33. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 3, 2011

    Rihanna already killed this girl`s entire solo career !

  34. BeyonceIsTheQueen August 3, 2011

    Keri is better than rihnanna any day. Screaming goat fenty cannot sing and how dare a ciara fan try to talk s*** lmfaooo. Her Last 2 albums have not even outsold Keri Hilson’s No Boys Allowed

    LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO

  35. NicoleScherzinger>YourLife August 3, 2011

    Wait….. DIdnt Keri Hilson sell more than Kelly Flopland in her 1st weeks..

    Keri Hilson First week sales 102,000 > Kelly Rowland 77,000

  36. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    How can keri sing better than rihanna? So running out of breathing and cracking your voice is better? Yeah rihanna is weak but at least she’s improved. Keri hasn’t. All she’s good at is runs.

  37. MuzikJunkie August 3, 2011

    I really hope she release All The Boys as a single! Keep up the good work Keri and I can’t wait for the next album!

  38. BrealK August 3, 2011

    That CD has only sold 300K. Keri has over 1 million followers on Twitter. They aren’t supporting her music.

  39. Rita Ora Stan August 3, 2011

    Beyonce fans are ghetto black trash

    Keri and Rita all day

  40. nice_gurl August 4, 2011

    She should focus more on promoting this album, not thinking about an upcoming album. Where is she? I haven’t heard or seen anything from her.

  41. BEYONCESAYSWELIKETOPARTY August 4, 2011

  47. RHI RHI IS QUEEN August 4, 2011

    HOW MANY SINGLES DO SHE NEED TO RELEASE BEFORE SHE REALIZES THIS ALBUM IS A FLOP? HER LABEL WANNA MAKE THIS GIRL A STAR SO BAD BUT SHE’S NOT..SHE’S DEFINITELY CONSIDERED ONE OF THE LESSER GIRLS. THE ALBUM SUCKS, I DOUBT IF ANYBODY IS REALLY LOOKIN FORWARD TO ANOTHER SCAREY HILSON ALBUM.. PRETTY GIRL ROCK WAS THE WORST SONG OF THE PAST 5 YEARS…WAAAAAAACK

  48. RHI RHI IS QUEEN August 4, 2011

    ALL THESE SINGLES AND VIDEOS AND SHE’S ONLY SOLD 300,000 OF THAT WACK JUICE OF A ALBUM.. SHE’S NOT EVEN GOLD YET AFTER LIKE 8 SINGLES EVEN THO SHE’S ON TOUR WITH LIL WAYNE.. AND LET’S NOT FORGET HOW SHE STOLE MARY-J’S HAIRSTYLE AND CIARA’S SWAG…SMH

  49. MISHKA August 4, 2011

    She made the wrong move after “Pretty Girl Rock” with that “The way you love me” video. She tried to be edgy but it was just a hot mess.

    There’s a reason why “Pretty Girl Rock” went platinum: the “classy lady” style works for her and I don’t see none of the other girls on that lane.

    This flop b**** needs to sit down already! She deserves to flop since she’s so arrogant and is an awful singer! NBA didn’t sell 300,000 copies in the US… it sold 260,000! LOL, how embarrassing? And for those saying her album sold more than Kelly Rowland’s in the first week, YOU DUMMIES, THAT’S BECAUSE IT WAS RELEASED DURING CHRISTMAS TIME! People were getting Keyshia’s album and others around that same time! Had it not been the holidays, it would’ve sold 30,000 less! I’m still trying to figure out what this girl’s talent is? She sings badly live all the damn time and doesn’t have much of a range! She sure can’t dance, and her writing credits are minor. She writes with like 6 other people for one song and on this album, I don’t remember seeing her name on any of the writing credits and if her name is on them, it has to be for like 1 or 2 songs with multiple other writers. She needs to hang it up. Isn’t her album off the charts now? I’m surprised her label hasn’t dropped her flop ass! It’s probably because she’s f****** Polow Da Don! That’s not right she can release all this music and get promo for the album when it flops, but other singers get dropped when that happens to them.

  52. Julie August 4, 2011

    OMG, HUSTLER OR ALL OF THE BOYS PLEEEEASE!!!! And Keri is not a flop, thank you very much.

  53. simiya August 4, 2011

    BEYONCES STANS ARE HERE AND THEY KNOW KERI IS A HUGE THREAT! KERI ONLY HAD 4 VIDEOS B**** CHECK HER WIKEPEDIA B****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KERI OUTSOLD KELLY ROWLAND AND CIARA THIS YEAR SO HATERS FALL BACK!

  54. simiya August 4, 2011

    BEYONCE RELEASED EVERY SONG ON HER F***** ALBUM WITH BDAY B****** SO HOW YALL HATING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YALL DONT REMEMBER HOW MANY TIMES BEYONCE RERELEASED ALBUMS AND MADE TONS OF VIDEOS OFF HER CRAP ALBUMS! KERI HAS 4 VIDEOS OUT AS SINGLES THE WAY U LOVE ME WAS NEVER A SINGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. Heavy Metal Lover August 4, 2011

    Keri girl, take a seat, how long have you been promoting this album and it’s still hasn’t gone Gold yet. This s*** is only at 320K WW after 5 singles, months and months of major national promo/marketing now you’re going to release 2 more singles, why??? Do you think it’ll save this flop album. And I find it funny how Keri fans are still coming at Beyonce and Ciara and for what. Basic Instinct has only sold half of No Boys Allowed but Ciara was performing overseas in stadiums for 50,000 people while Keri is opening for Lil’ Wayne and 4 sold more than No Boys Allowed in it’s first week alone, so Keri and her delusional ass stans need to take a f****** seat. When Keri get’s Platinum and #1 albums, mutliplatinum and #1 singles and performs for more than a few thousand people when’s she’s no longer an opening act and when she wins Grammys, AMAs, VMAs, ASCAP Awards, Brit Awards and Billboard Awards as well the Billboard Woman of the Year as Ciara did in 2008 and Beyonce did in 2009, then holla at me.

  56. Jojo T August 4, 2011

    I think the label messed Keri up. She said so on Celo Green’s show they released Break Point first,and she wouldn’t have release that one but she didn’t have a say so in that. They should have released All the Boys First, Lose Control, and Pretty Girl Rock. I blame the label for the albums low sells not her. It was poor management decisions. I love Keri, but I don’t think more videos will help the sale of this album.

    Hopefully, on the next album they will listen to her on which songs to release first.

  57. Lea August 10, 2011

    I like Rihanna, but lets be real, Keri can sing better. Keri just needs better management because she is releasing to many songs, and none of them are helping her album sales. I hope her next album is better than her last albums (which aren’t that bad in my opinion). I think she also needs better writers.

  58. KERI HILSON IS BADDDDDDDD AND SHES A THREAT TO UR FAV August 15, 2011

    KERI HILSON IS MICHAEL JACKSON BADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
