Keri Hilson released her sophomore album No Boys Allowed only a few short months ago, but the wheels are already turning for a follow-up. The sexy singer revealed that she’s about to commence work on her as-yet-untitled third LP, with plans to hit the studio with producer Polow Da Don next month.
“I’m actually recording, going back into the studio in March just to see what happens with Polow Da Don,” Miss Keri exclusively told Rap-Up.com. “I’ve given it some thought, but I’m definitely not going to rush it. I never want to be in that position, so there’s no date or anything. I’m going pretty deep on the second album, anyway.”
The songstress plans to see No Boys Allowed through until the end, with a tour slated for April and hopes of taking Jessie J and Miguel on the road. But with features on her sophomore album including Kanye West, J. Cole, Rick Ross, and more, she isn’t counting out big collabos for album number three.
“Bruno Mars and I have talked about it,” she said of her potential duets, name-checking another singer on her wish list. “Cee Lo is one that I would like to have happen.”
The singer-songwriter is currently promoting her latest album, which spawned the singles “Pretty Girl Rock” and “Breaking Point.” For her next single, she’s leaning toward “One Night Stand” featuring Chris Brown, though she hopes that the John Legend-penned “All the Boys” will eventually become a single.

T-Pain’s ready to take matters into his own hands and leak his fourth album, RevolveR. He turned to his Twitter account late last night and offered the explanation below.
Since nobody wants to respect this form of art that you all say we “love” so much, I’m just gonna go ahead and start leakin the album myself tonight. well maybe I shouldn’t rant but everybody was lookin at me strange when I said I didn’t wanna drop my album, it’s not that album sales weren’t doin good for hip hop and rnb, it just felt like no one respected “music” anymore.
You know what, you guys enjoy the post game and I’ll find my own ways to take care of my family. Oh and bty the “I Am T-Pain” Toy Microphone is comin in June (google that). To all the hackers and leakers thanks for showin interest in my music but I feel like I’ve been taken advantage of when I’m just tryin to let ppl know what’s goin on with my music and then you audio highjack it for your own amusement I would have been happier if you would have just waited to get a better quality version of the song but it’s cool its pretty much my fault anyways, so for the most part y’all can suck a fart out of a homeless mans ass.
And to the fans, I know I talk a lot of shit but I’m a cool dude and I wanna say that without y’all and Tallahassee and Akon and Bu and the nappy headz and the team that I have now, I wouldn’t be half the guy I am today so thank you as well. Here we go again YASIMELIKE
