Keri Hilson Hints Label Is Holding Her Back From Releasing New Music
Keri Hilson has given a hint to why she hasn’t released any new music. The singer, who has taken a hiatus from her music career since 2010, posted a message about why she hasn’t been able to give anything new to her fans. In an Instagram post, the text read:
My truth is, 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…wisdom. I’ve lost some pivotal characters in the process of stepping away from my wellbeing…though I was prepared for the possibility that some wouldn’t understand or lose faith in me as an artist while I dealt with the trials of my life, it still hurts. But I accept the fact that some relationships have just run its course. Other figures of my past are greedy, unreasonable, & refuse to honor my growth.
The other figures Hilson could be hinting at is her record label, Interscope Records. Hilson released two of her albums – “In A Perfect World” and “No Boys Allowed” – under Timbaland‘s imprint – Mosley Music Group – and under Interscope’s umbrella. Hilson leaned towards the notion, via her Twitter,
The Twitter user stated:
@KeriHilson Apologies for being selfish and inconsiderate being only concerned about the music. Disregarding that your a real person with real issues I now realize in order for one to pour they must first be FILLED
I accept your apology & understanding. But that process is over, I am FULL and READY. It’s just the characters who THINK they control my destiny will not free me…
It’s kind of a comeback because I hit rock bottom a few times. I’m crawling back to walking in my purpose and using my gifts … I think I had to give up music for a while. I stepped away and thought it would just be a year. It’s been six maybe. I realize now that I’m grateful for all of those years because I’ve built myself back up.
