Keri Hilson explains reasons for absence from the music industry

25 Feb

Keri Hilson has explained the reasons for her absence from the music industry.

“My truth us, I’d love nothing more than to release this incredible music I’ve been “sitting on,” and I’ve been trying for years for that to occur. There have been so many blockages I have constantly fought myself to not directly speak about. I’ve lost some pivotal characters in the process of stepping away for my well-being. But I accept the fact that some relationships have just run their course. Other figures of my past are greedy, unreasonable & refuse to honor my growth. Music will always be a huge part of who I am, but there is a process in process … challenges that I still must overcome for that work to see the light of day it deserves. I will emerge from this cocoon just as beautifully as I have overcome other processes in my life that were designed to grow me,” the American singer/songwriter posted to Instagram.

Hilson’s last studio collection, “No Boys Allowed,” was released in 2010 via Mosley Music / Zone 4 / Interscope Records. The project debuted at number eleven on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned contributions from Stargate (“Lose Control”), John Legend (“All the Boys”), Ne-Yo (“Pretty Girl Rock”), Kevin McCall (“One Night Stand”) and R. City (“Bahm Bahm”).

As a songwriter, Hilson has penned songs for Britney Spears (“Gimme More”), Ciara (“Ooh Baby”), Mary J. Blige (“Take Me As I Am”), Toni Braxton (“Supposed to Be”), Usher (“Red Light”), Omarion (“Ice Box”), LeToya Luckett (“What Love Can Do”), Chris Brown (“Young Love”), Jennifer Lopez (“Wrong When You’re Gone”) and 3LW (“Things You Never Hear a Girl Say”).
