[artist id="1746119"]Keri Hilson’s[/artist] new album may be titled No Boys Allowed , but as she told MTV News recently, men are definitely allowed on the project.
A cursory glance of the track list reveals Rick Ross, Nelly, J.Cole, Kanye West and Timbaland as guest artists.
Also included on the set, on the steamy duet “One Night Stand,” is Chris Brown.
Hilson has been a staunch supporter of the embattled singer: Brown appeared in the “Slow Dance” video from her previous LP, and the two shared a laugh over a lap dance the “Deuces” star gave Hilson in a promo clip for her album.
“People are already putting [Brown] back in their good graces ’cause they see his remorse,” Hilson told MTV News. “And I know people are saying, ‘Is he really a man? You have him on your album.’ I mean, yeah. To me, a man is someone, you don’t go backwards in life. You learn from your mistakes, and you don’t do it again. You show remorse, and you move on. You move forward onto bigger and better things.
That’s a man trait.”
Earlier this week, Brown completed a yearlong domestic violence course after pleading guilty to assaulting Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time.
Brown posted a picture of his certificate on his Twitter page and shared a sentiment with his fans regarding the process.
“I have enough self-respect and decency to be proud of accomplishing this DV class,” Brown wrote. “Boyz run from their mistakes. Men learn from them!!! thx.”
