Via her Instagram account, Monica shared a photo of Keri in the studio, along with a caption asserting the singer’s new music would likely lead to a couple of Grammys.
Keri’s first Grammy nods came back in 2010 when she was nominated for Best New Artist and for Best Rap Sung Collaboration for her work with Ne-Yo and Kanye West on her single “Knock You Down.”
Keri Hilson Explains Her Musical Hiatus
Since then Keri has kept a low profile musically, explaining her absence as something she needed to do to get closer to God. Via several cryptic messages posted to Twitter in the summer of 2013, Keri said ego, fame, success and pressure had caused her to veer off track and that she was taking time off to “deal with the elephant in the room.”
Whatever the case, news of Keri’s possible return to the charts should serve as welcome news to lovers of R&B. “No Boys Allowed” was full of underrated musical gems and was a welcome change for a genre that seems to be almost completely male dominated.
Here’s hoping Keri gets it together and releases something in the coming year.
