Keri Hilson's sophomore album, "No Boys Allowed," will be available on Dec. 21 and in anticipation of the release the R&B songstress has given The Juice readers an exclusive first listen to the track "Toy Soldier." Listen to the power ballad below.
"No Boys Allowed" follows Hilson's 2009 debut, "In A Perfect World," which has gone on to sell tk copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan, and spawned the hit singles "Turnin' Me On" and "Knock You Down." It features production from Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Danja, Ne-Yo, Chuck Harmony, John Legend, Boi-1da and Stargate, among others, as well as guest spots from Kanye West, Rick Ross, J. Cole, Chris Brown and Nelly.
"It's basically my way of saying 'girl power,'" Hilson tells Billboard.com about the set's title. "The album is about empowering women to be themselves and keep control of their confidence... It's not about alienating men, it's just about wanting to school them on what it takes to be considered a man as opposed to a boy."
