Keri Hilson Opens Up About ‘No Boys Allowed’ and Her New Fearless Perspective

R&B singer-songwriter, Keri Hilson epitomizes confidence in her recently released sophomore album, ‘No Boys Allowed’. The ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ beauty exposes a side of herself listeners has rarely seen. Despite criticism surrounding her video for the track ‘The Way You Love Me’, Hilson says, “I have no interest in being ‘safe’ anymore.” The superstar explains that she is in a place where she is no longer afraid. When referencing her music Hilson says, “I think the best work comes from a fearless point of view, a fearless perspective.” Hilson confesses that she was a little safe on her first album ‘In A Perfect World’, but she refuses to be, “safe anymore and poised and proper” because that isn’t her reality. The songstress preaches the importance of staying true to yourself. “You can’t win for losing. Even when you think you’re doing what is right, so many people are against that too – so you might as well be yourself”. She goes on to say her favorite tracks are ‘All the Boys’, ‘Buyou’, and of course the chart topping gem ‘Pretty Girl Rock’. No stranger to center stage, Hilson was invited to be a part of the VH1 Divas Salute the Troops concert earlier this month. With a servant’s heart, Hilson and divas Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and more performed for the soldiers. Shockingly, she admits that she does not consider herself a diva – for Hilson, the VH1 special meant so much more. “The whole Divas thing, though it was an honor, for me it was all about the troops. My father served in the Army, it was my way of giving back.” Facing her career and critics head on, Keri Hilson’s content, lyrics, and beats are an audio-representation of her growth as an artist – with a new confidence boost to match.
