Keri Hilson Lines Up Yet Another Single & Video

Published: Thursday 28th Oct 2010 by Sam

Trick or treat? Indeed, that’s what we asked ourselves upon hearing that R&B singer Keri Hilson is set to release yet another single from her ‘No Boys Allowed’ LP in the form of ‘The Way You Love Me’. An epic video for which was shot earlier this week.

Full story (as well star-studded video set pics, and a live performance) after the jump…

According to Rap-Up, the uptempo release is being given the full works treatment by Hilson’s label – most notably with its accompanying video.

Directed by choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson (in her directorial debut), the short film features cameos from the likes of Faith Evans, JoJo, the Teflon Don Rick Ross, Polow Da Don, Columbus Short and Lloyd. The ladies in the clip reportedly play bounty hunters.

—————————————————–

Sounds interesting. Although it does beggar the question; is this a last ditch effort to salvage Hilson’s sales prospects? For none of the LP’s earlier released singles have done much of anything on the charts (see: ‘Breaking Point’ and ‘Pretty Girl Rock’). This despite the album’s release date fast approaching (November 30th).

To be fair, kudos are most certainly in order for Hilson’s team. This is a quintessential example of pulling out all the stops. If only certain other labels would do the same for their artists *cough Kelly Rowland / Universal Motown cough*

In any case, check out Hilson’s recent performance of ‘The Way You Love Me’ in New York. Video set pics follow…

  6. Adrienne October 28, 2010

    I thought it was just me who feels like Keri just doesn’t give you that SOMETHING!I agree that she needs to stop jackin’ Rihanna and do her own thing.I believe that Keri needs to develop her own style and maybe she’ll get some respect.I do hope that this video/single does well for her though,she really needs it!

  7. KiKi October 28, 2010

    FLOP ALERT!

  8. mark ginnis October 28, 2010

  9. Dax October 28, 2010

    She looks like a cracked out Nicole Ritchie.

  10. GangsterA October 28, 2010

  11. zee October 28, 2010

    wow the song sounds like a serious club banger that will do her goood! finally!

  12. queenbeyonce10 October 28, 2010

    This b**** can’t dance. Leave that to Ciara sweetheart. If Ciara performed that song she would rcok that stage.

    I just don’t understand why this b**** Keri Hilson bothers, she’s horrible live. She can’t entertain. It’s like watching water freeze.

  13. Carmello October 28, 2010

    F****** DEATH @Queenbeyonce10

    Its like watching water freeze

    Lol. I agree, i just hate her performances. It’s a bore fest, and she can’t really entertain. Or the only entertainment is actually watching her act a fool.

  14. LOL October 28, 2010

    nice concept for a vido she’ll find away to F*** IT UP though TRUST ME !!!

    As for the song sound like a banger!!! As long as they STUDIO edit her voice and turn up the production for the beat she might have a hit!!!!

    @THAT PERFORMANCE ummmm NO

    GOD SHE IS SO TONE DEAF !!!!!!

    I HAVEN’T EVEN HEARD THE “OFFICIAL” SONG AND I KNOW SHE IS OFF… SINGING IN THE WRONG DAMN KEY !!!!!

    I haven’t watched a keri hilson performance since the 09 BET awards AND THE B**** IS STILL HASN’TGOTTEN “IT” YET !!!!

    I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE DAMAGE DONE TO EARS OF THE PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE !!!!

    they get my condolences…

  15. WILL WATS October 28, 2010

    WHY IS SHE SO F***** WACK, B**** OUT OF BREATH AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PERFORMANCE.. UMMM CARDIO B**** LEARN HOW TO DO THOSE SIMPLE ASS MOVES AND SING AT THE SAME TIME.. SMH… ITS JUST SAD.. *WAITS FOR CIARA TO PERFORM GIMME DAT* BASIC INSTINCT 12-14-2010

    Keri looks like a crack w**** who just did a line of coke in the pic she’s posing in with Rick. Her look is very tacky and cheap. I don’t care how epic the video is supposed to be, she still won’t impress anyone or turn heads. She just doesn’t have it. “Knock you down” was an amazing video and song with talented artists. That should’ve catapulted her to stardom, but sadly it didn’t. The thing about her is she’s not being her true self, she’s giving us so many looks and themes that aren’t her, and people can see right through the BS. She let the industry turn her into a puppet and that is her demise. She should just stick to writing those amazing songs for other people and stop trying to make her career happen, cuz it’s not gonna happen.

  17. the truth teller October 28, 2010

    I cant with Keri…shes way too HOT!!!

  18. Altered_Reality October 28, 2010

    Oh and the blonde hair she is sporting is unbecoming. I don’t know why all these black chicks think that dying their hair blonde will make them more appealing. It doesn’t, just make you look like you hate your DNA.

  19. stan October 28, 2010

    “pretty girl rock” is a cute song. i’m kinda surprised it wasn’t bigger.

  20. Soulful Roses October 28, 2010

    She tries way too hard. What happened to just being you?

  21. jo October 28, 2010

    well i do hav to say that shez doin it big on the 106 & park countdown

  22. BENJAMIN October 28, 2010

    She better not think about releasing this song before releasing “Pretty Girl Rock” as a single.

  23. Jordan October 28, 2010

    This should have been the first single. Keri just sounds better over a Polow beat than a TImbaland beat.

    Let us remember that she released “Energy” and “Return the Favor” before releasing “Turnin’ Me On” which was her breakout song.

    I don’t know what the f*** people’s labels are thinking sometimes. If they only read blogs and had fansites, they would know exactly what the fans want.

    And she dances like B.Scott lol fail.

  24. Vee October 28, 2010

    flop Keri Can come Harder then this. this video was wack sorry But i love Keri and all she can do much better then this and what with the song title, she said no boys allowed and she talking bout the way he love her WTF KH. come on now *disappointing*

  25. Nadjee October 28, 2010

    Ugh, she looks like old white trailer trash in that pic. She needs to tan up her skin again. cuz the bright yellow skin and blond look is not working for her.

  26. Jordan October 28, 2010

    Oh, and she’s not tonedeaf; she’s lip syncing.

  27. lola October 28, 2010

    LOL WTF is this? Keri, sit down! OMG this chick is wack as hell! I think she may even be wacker than C-ERROR! That single was horrible! It seriously sounded like a bunch of noise and screaming. Wow, I knew Keri’s voice was a mess live, but this hurt my ears! Is she tone deaf? Isn’t it amazing at how much a producer/sound engineer can fix a singer’s vocals in the studio? That performance was a no no and her dancing was embarrassing. She doesn’t even have her own style and image. She’s rocking Rihanna’s blonde DON’T so I guess when Rihanna’s changes the red, Keri will go to the red. Her face is UG! She is so damn ugly and old looking and I agree that she looks like a crack w****. I hate it when people try to act like she’s pretty because of her airbrushed pics or light skin but she looks like a drunk and high bird. Her body is on point though. But Keri, go back to song co-writing.

  28. credits October 28, 2010

    Ok, im actually sold on this song! You guys wish rihanna or ciara sang it don’t you? As for her hairstyles, is that not an afro i’m seeing on her head? tell me when rihanna had a blonde afro….When rihanna did blonde was it because beyonce was blonde? How about when rihanna was rocking a short keri hilson bob which keri hilson did first…peep the ‘make love’ video. Yea, even i feel whack now making comparisons.

  29. meme October 28, 2010

    Ms Hilson, work on your abs before want to “show off” your “abs”..oh and I did not listen or watch that video..what for right

  30. chile please! October 28, 2010

    Can’t see the video at work now but is it just me or does Keri looks old & worn out in the face in that first pic???? I mean she looks like she has bags under her eyes & a bad makeup job! Girl Bye!

  31. Educated Diva October 28, 2010
