Disgraced R&B star Chris Brown is hoping to mount a chart comeback with the help of Keri Hilson once his assault case is over.
Hilson confirms she has been in talks with Brown, who will be in court in Los Angeles on Monday (22Jun09) to face charges he attacked and threatened the life of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
She says, "Us working together will probably be the first project I've worked on as a songwriter in a while."
It won't be the first time Hilson and Brown have worked together - they dueted on track Superhuman, while Hilson wrote Young Love for the R&B star.
The singer/songwriter can only hope that Brown and Rihanna resolve the upcoming court case quickly and amicably.
She adds, "It is unfortunate what they are going through."
Brown faces up to five years behind bars for allegedly beating his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, and threatening her life in February (09).
