R&B singer Keri Hilson has revealed that she does not have time to go on vacation this summer, saying she’s too busy working on her second album.

In an interview with Global Grind, the 27-year-old has insisted that she’s "excited" about her forthcoming LP because it will be inspirational to all women.

Hilson said: "This summer I will not be going on any vacations! I went straight from working on my last album, to my last show and I moved straight to LA to start working with Timbaland and Polow [da Don] for my next album. I definitely have not [had] time to sit down yet, not time for vacations, I still have more to do.

"My next album should be coming out later on this year and I’m excited about it's release! I really wanted to do an album to tell women to be confident, no matter what their circumstances. You have to push trough, don’t yield at the first sign of adversity. The theme of this event is celebrating the journey and not the success."

She added: "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."

In June, Hilson hinted that she has collaborated with lots of "big names" on her forthcoming LP.
