*Keri Hilson is back with her sophomore album, “No Boys Allowed,” after debuting her first album a couple of years ago. She spoke with Celebuzz about what keeps her music fresh and what she intends to do in the future.

“Sometimes you do get stumped,” says Hilson. “You’re like, ‘Man, I’ve talked about that.’ But no one has heard me deliver it in the way that I deliver it so sometimes I am talking about a subject that I’ve written about for someone else before, but I deliver it differently.”

Just in time for Christmas, “No Boys Allowed” will be released on Dec. 21, and expect collaborations with J. Cole, Nelly, Kanye West, Rick Ross, and Chris Brown.

Hilson is excited, yet also pretty calm about her second album.

“I am in a place where I’m a lot less concerned with how things are received. That mindset for me right now is a gift,” she said. “I don’t feel the pressure to be liked or loved by everyone. I can’t please everyone. You’re not going to win that battle, even when you feel like you are doing something everyone will like. People have something to say no matter what, so I may as well be myself.”
