It has been seven years since we heard new music from Keri Hilson. The “Pretty Girl Rock” singer recently announced that she is ready to get back on the music scene. She also talked about what had her away for so long.
“When ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ was at the top of the charts… I was bearing the weight of some personal and professional mistakes, and they just weighed so so so heavy on my spirit, and I was just not myself,” she said during a mental health panel in Atlanta. “It all just kind of spiraled for me, and became something I had never been through, I had never recognized myself as a person who can’t pick themselves back up. I was literally onstage crying.”
