Bryson Tiller Receives Key To Louisville, Kentucky + Keri Hilson Returns To Music Scene With New Album ‘L.I.A.R.’
Bryon Tiller was awarded the key to his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky and was given his own “Bryson Tiller Day.” Meanwhile, Keri Hilson is ready to make a splash on the music scene again with her new album L.I.A.R. Deets inside…
From being a soundcloud superstar to rising mainstream mega star, Bryson Tiller (aka Pen Griffey) is making major moves in the music industry. And his hometown is taking notice.
Making a stop in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky on his "Trapsoul Tour," the 23-year-old crooner was awarded the key to his city. Seems like everybody is getting a key to the city these days. Bryson receives his key following in the footsteps of a few YBF artists, including Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Sevyn Streeter and more.
After Bryson was awarded the major key, Louisville mayor Greg Fischer hit the stage to present Bryson with a certificate to declare March 12th as “Byrson Tiller Day.”
Below are a few clips as Bryson is presented the key to his city:

Bryson's homie Big Sean was also in the mix as he was scheduled for a surprise performance during the show. He snapped a pic with Bryson backstage and captioned, “Had to come thru for my bro @brysontiller! Thank u Louisville, insane!”
A few days later, Bryson paid a surprise visit to some Jefferson County Public School students in Lousiville to speak some words of encouragement. He told the students English was his favorite subject in school, which led to him to become a songwriter.

Miss Keri Baby is back!
Singer-songwriter Keri Hilson is ready to return to the music scene after a five-year hiatus. For the follow up to her 2010 LP No Boys Allowed, the R&B songstress is gearing up to release her third studio album L.I.A.R., an acronym for Love Is A Religion.
On the new album, Keri will reportedly answer all the burning questions as to WHY she left music in the first place. “I promise, I will tell my fans everything on this album,” Keri said. “Why I was really gone, what actually happened, what didn’t, what I could control, and what I couldn’t,” said Hilson. “Never will I ever again take a break from music.”
To celebrate her new album dropping, Keri will be releasing the first single titled “Again,” produced by Mike WiLL-Made It and co-written by R. City. The album is being dubbed as Keri’s “most honest song to date.”
We can expect some heavy hitters to be featured on the new LP that will include Chris Brown, Timbaland, Powlow Da Don and more. L.I.A.R. is expected to drop later this year via Zone 4/Mosley Music Group.
