It’s been many years since Keri shot herself in the foot by coming for the Queen Bey, however that hasn’t stopped many from holding it against her to this day. However, based on her recent claims, perhaps fans are willing to forgive now that Beyoncé herself supposedly has.
Once upon a time Keri Hilson’s career was flourishing with her hits such as “Knock You Down” and “Pretty Girl Rock”, but it came to a screeching halt after she appeared to be smelling herself a little too much and was accused of trashing Beyoncé in the remix of her song “Turnin Me On”. But there was more to the story: The songstress, young at the time, recently claimed she didn’t write the lyrics and was actually forced to record them under the threat of career-threatening retaliation from parties within her camp — a move she now regrets, of course.
Hilson, who hasn’t released an official album since 2010, has kept a relatively low profile throughout the last decade as she’s nourished her mental health, publicly acknowledging her bouts with depression following the almost immediate backlash from the diss record. But she’s cautiously emerged from her self-imposed cocoon, preparing new music and finding a passion in acting. Her latest gig being the TV movie “Lust: A Deadly Sins Story” which premiered yesterday on Lifetime as a part of a two-film partnership between the network and megapastor T.D. Jakes. During an interview with Persia Nicole or 92Q Jams to promote the film, of course the topic of that infamous Beyoncé moment came up and suprisingly Hilson shared that she’s had a conversation with Bey where things apparently led to a “healing place” for her.
When asked if she’d collab with Bey, Keri replied “absolutely, she actually has introduced herself, it was a gracious moment and I appreciated it. I feel like she understood what happened and what transpired. There was a bit of healing in that moment when we met, I took her as a very intuitive soul as am I” before ultimately confirming she thinks it’d be fun to team up with the “Formation” singer if she was open.
Honestly, this sounds like some grown woman shit. It’s dope to hear that they both were able to put their pride aside and come to common ground and understanding…but the question is, will fans do the same? Y’all know the Beyhive doesn’t play and time is not always a factor on their list. Do you see a comeback in the cards for Keri? Would you actually be here for a collab with Bey?
