While currently on tour with Lil Wayne, Keri Hilson recently took a moment to reveal a few details about the focus of her upcoming third album, and her plans to get behind the lens for her next music video.

While Hilson is still technically promoting her sophomore release, ‘No Boys Allowed,’ the ‘Lose Control’ singer told Billboard that she’s planning to make some changes next time around. “We’re proud of the fact that we have so many options on my albums for singles, but for the next one I really want people to get the concept of the album,” she said.

“I think some of the singles that we’ve chosen so far don’t quite encapsulate the album title and theme, so I want to release a song that makes it a little easier to understand,” Hilson continued. “I straddle the fence between getting the concept out and just having a simple, great, successful song.”

In addition to releasing a more conceptual release, Ms. Keri Baby revealed that she would like to direct her next videos. “I would love to tell a story and shoot more videos on my own,” she said. “I would love to do a short film-style video … because it’s a real story of single women who are dating. I keep it real. I talk about how we really think and how we really feel. So I think there’s a message to still be had from this project.”

Catch Keri Hilson on the second leg of Lil Wayne’s I Am Still Music Tour with Rick Ross, Lloyd and Far East Movement in Pelham, Ala. tonight. The tour continues across the country, concluding on September 11. Check the rest of the dates here.
