Keri Hilson sent shockwaves across the internet upon debuting the racy video for new single ‘The Way You Love Me’ on Sunday. Since then, opinion has been markedly split; with many believing the singer-songwriter to have taken the sexy concept too far, with others feeling it just what the 27 year old needed to elevate her self to that all-important next level.
Providing clarity on the matter are our friends over at Hip-Hollywood, who were on the set of the Laurieann Gibson directed shoot.

The Essex-born/ US-based singer-songwriter has generated quite the buzz over the last year – so much so that ‘Dude’ – her label’s preferred “taster single” has surpassed expectation and is currently on-course to be a chart smash her in the UK. With her US debut scheduled for next year, the future is looking particularly bright for the talented songstress.
