No Boys Allowed

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
A popular and strange opinion prior to the late 2010 release of No Boys Allowed was that Keri Hilson's career was on life support. Her 2009 debut album failed to go platinum, but a number one R&B single and a number two R&B single, along with nominations for Soul Train, BET, American Music, and the Grammy Awards, did not exactly place her on a fast track to the Shanachie label's covers-album exile. And yet, her follow-up isn't merely eager to stand out -- she and her support staff go all out and aim for pop dominance.

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
A popular and strange opinion prior to the late 2010 release of No Boys Allowed was that Keri Hilson's career was on life support. Her 2009 debut album failed to go platinum, but a number one R&B single and a number two R&B single, along with nominations for Soul Train, BET, American Music, and the Grammy Awards, did not exactly place her on a fast track to the Shanachie label's covers-album exile. And yet, her follow-up isn't merely eager to stand out -- she and her support staff go all out and aim for pop dominance. Hilson, despite being a gifted songwriter, contributes to only five of the 11 songs, while a vast assortment of collaborators -- a number that dwarfs that of In a Perfect World... -- are enlisted. The most emblematic track is "The Way You Love Me," rowdy and sexually direct dance-pop "I got the kinda lovin' that'll keep you off the streets" with screaming vocals and blaring sonics. There is a handful of direct hits, like the Danja-produced "Toy Soldier" palpable heartache that hangs in suspension, the sleek StarGate/Esther Dean collaboration "Lose Control" despite an "anus"/"famous" rhyme from Nelly, and "Gimme What I Want," something of a part two to both "Turnin' Me On" and "Get Your Money Up" featuring a phenomenal shape-shifting beat from Boi-1da.
