Keri Hilson – No Boys Allowed (2014) Lyrics

No Boys Allowed is the second album by Keri Hilson, released on December 17, 2010 through Mosley Music and Zone 4 Records. On the album, Hilson is reunited with Timbaland and Polow da Don, who executively produced the album, as they did with her debut release. Hilson also worked with several other producers and songwriters, including Ne-Yo, John Legend, StarGate, Bei Maejor and Boi-1da, among others. Meanwhile, Chris Brown, Rick Ross, J. Cole, Nelly, Kanye West and Timbaland all have featured guest vocals. Musically, No Boys Allowed is an R&B album, which incorporates pop, soul, electro and dancehall into the songs.

When Hilson was interviewed by Global Grind in August 2010, she explained that she was excited about the album’s release, because it would be inspirational to all women, stating:

I really wanted to do an album to tell women to be confident, no matter what their circumstances. You have to push through, don’t yield at the first sign of adversity. The theme of this event is celebrating the journey and not the success. My personal journey was over 12 years long. I had to sit back and be a songwriter when my first goal was to be an artist. I know a lot of women who just have given up, so I want them to have the same tenacity and drive that men have. I really went there on this album.
