Keri Hilson Review

Musicology reporter: With so much fresh young female talent around at the moment what make Keri Hilson stand out from the crowd?
Energy is the first release from Miss Hilson but she isn’t a young cat when it comes to the Music Industry, she is in fact a part of a collective of producers and writers know as the Clutch.

Throughout the early and late 2000s she wrote for many artists including Britney Spears and Ludacris. Although she didn’t hit the public eye until 2007 when she featured on the Timbaland track The Way I Are ,she has been around for quite some time behind the scenes and featuring in music videos for the likes of Usher, Ne-Yo and Nelly amongst others.

Energy was released officially in the Spring of 2009 and has become a hit with true R&B fans worldwide. After many pushbacks Energy was released on March 24th 2009 and reached number 4 on the American billboard 100 and number 1 on the official R&B charts. One of my personal favourite tracks Energy was the first worldwide release it failed to be a significant hit in the US and UK charts but is regardless a stand out track revealing a deep and personal side to Keri that had yet to be seen, a far cry from her involvement on Timbalands tracks The way I Are and Scream and Nas’s track Hero.

The second release Return The Favour Feat Timbaland became a top ten hit in the US and UK as well as all over Europe reminiscent of the tracks she had featured on previously the music scene took to it instantly.
Turnin Me On was the third official release, featuring Lil Wayne it’s an up tempo sure fire club hit and proving very popular not one my personal favourites but defo worth a listen.

Knock You Down feat Ne-Yo and Kanye West is the second UK release and the fourth US release its shaping up to be one of the standout hits of this ladies career, fans took to it and its sure to make a name for her especially having such high profile stars as Kanye featuring on the track.
