Keri's In A Perfect World to be released in May

In a recent article in USA Today it was revealed that Keri HIlson's album will be coming out in May. The article goes in depth talking about multiple song writers gone solo artists including Sean "The Pen" Garrett, Ne-Yo, The Dream, Johnta Austin, and one Ms. Keri Hilson. Take a look:

****Hilson, 25, the writer behind Britney Spears' Gimme More and Mary J. Blige's Take Me As I Am, says she got the singing bug early. As a teenager, she sang in a couple of groups. Those acts fizzled, but she honed her songwriting and arranging skills and frequently works as a background singer on her tunes.

"I used to tear up watching Star Search and Showtime at the Apollo and Soul Train," says Hilson, whose In a Perfect World …is out in May. "I could not watch a live performance and not cry. I entered my first talent show in kindergarten and sang Home from The Wiz. Writing was my fallback, in a way."

She has received exposure lately by writing, singing and appearing in videos for Timbaland's The Way I Are and Scream. She's signed to Timbaland's joint-venture label, Mosley Music Group, and producer Polow Da Don's Zone 4 Inc.
