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. Check out their behind the scenes look at what has become one music’s biggest talking points this year (the video has garnered over 6 million views on Worldstar Hip-Hop – in 48hrs). Here Hilson, and others, explain the video’s concept in more depth.Array
While I’m keen to see what flavour consequence this will have for Hilson (be it positive or negative), I’d be lying if I said I haven’t both the video and song repeat since Sunday. A testament no doubt to the power of shock and awe.
