New Song: Keri Hilson – ‘Toy Soldier’

Published: Tuesday 14th Dec 2010 by Trent

Billboard debuted a new song from Keri Hilson today. ‘Toy Soldier’ will appear on her new album, ‘No Boys Allowed’, on December 21st. Give it a listen below:

This is a beautiful song. The beat-driven production and the piano melody had a very ‘grand’ appeal similar to the compositions found on – dare I say it – Beyonce’s ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’. Hilson’s voice even sounded great on the track.

It seems that Hilson is preparing for a chart battle. Most of her material has been solid and her promotion is definitely being well planned and executed. Let’s see if the numbers will reflect all of her hard work.

  5. QueenBeyonce December 14, 2010

    YAAAAAAAAASSSSS. See this is why i STAN for Keri Hilson and Beyonce. They are the ONLY 2 Urban/Pop Black chicks that i listen to and sometimes rihanna. BUT keri and beyonce are my favs. This was beautiful and she is doing new things wither her voice. Hence the mini runs. I love love love the chorus.

    He said that i will never have to fight again. He said that i will never cry again. <==== That 1 line is the story of my life right now.

  6. Bei December 14, 2010

    Her material is good but honestly this new image she’s trying to pass off could be her downfall

  7. C-bookem December 14, 2010

    her music is more grown up. i think this album is more like her song energy with good lyrics and heartfelt ballads I’m for sure buying the album

  13. RadioSmart December 14, 2010

    I think it’s so dope how her album has not leaked yet. Her team is on it for being in control of what we hear. This song is DOPE!!! Her album is going to be awesome. So smart for leaking this song at this time. She’s been working hard as hell this era she deserves all the success. December 21st!!!

    Anyways the song is okay.

  16. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 14, 2010

    One thing I can say about Keri even though I don’t like her is at least she is working and TRYING.

    Instead of hanging on the red carpet with the Kardashians and La La.

  17. GangsterA December 14, 2010

  27. S*** December 14, 2010

    #BASIC

    This would be str8 up filler on a Beyonce Album (something that she rarely has on hers if any)

    we’ll see if this goes Gold even with the Promo… we’ll see.

  36. royalkev December 14, 2010

    Wow @ people comparing Keri to Queen Bey & Mimi! delusional! This girl flops sleeping. How on earth is it that she’s getting all this love? …Is this tied to Cici hate? Anyway, Keri music is wack! …and so is Toy Soldier. I find it so funny that people are acting like they stan for her all of a sudden! The only thing hot off this album is Pretty Girl Rock and she better run that song to next year!

  37. truth serum December 14, 2010

    Lol… This song is too “pop” for my tastes and generic. That’s about the only thing that is similar about it being like a Beyoncé song b/c her material is generic as well.. IE anyone could sing it.

  38. Nik December 14, 2010

    She hit #4 on the charts selling 94k first week with her last album, I think she will do waaaayyy better with this album. He promotion is 100% better.

  39. Lostonez December 14, 2010

    sounds interesting..

  40. CORY December 14, 2010

    I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME SHE DOES POP MUSIC WELL BREAKING POINT WAS CUTE BUT THAT FORM OF SINGING WAS NOT FOR HER VOICE BUT SHE KILLED THE PERFORMANCE OF IT AT BETS “BLACK GIRLS ROCK” CONCERY

  41. Ummmmmmm December 14, 2010

    I
    heard
    that
    she
    was
    going
    to
    perform
    on
    the
    show
    yesterday
    and
    i
    wasnt
    going
    to
    watch
    then
    i
    only
    watch
    to
    hear
    if
    she
    sounds
    the
    same
    and
    dress
    the
    same
    as
    usual.
    keri
    your
    outfit
    was
    UGLY
    and
    you
    sounded
    the
    same
    boring
    horrible

    sorry
    girl
    still
    NOT
    A
    FAN!

  42. BOSS December 14, 2010

    LOLOLOLO!!!! FLOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. John December 14, 2010

    Ok song. She is working hard I have to say. But seriously, comparing this to any Mariah´s material and specially The Emancipation is just ridiculos. It´s not that ridiculous to compare this to Beyonce´s songs in a way cos they are generic and many voices could sing them.

  44. hesai December 14, 2010

    i gotta give it to TGJ

    i LOVE the way you mess with beyonce stans. its hilarious.

    for some reason im thinkin of ”WHO YOU FINNA TRY?”AHHHHH!

  45. Tami December 15, 2010

    I’m sorry but this is not ANYTHING CLOSE TO BEYONCE!DONT EVEN TRY IT!Keri needs to decide.She sometimes wants to be Ciara,Rihanna,and Beyonce. Honestly I don’t think she’ll do that great in the charts. *Shrugs* The song is okay I guess but is she FLOPS with all this promo it will be HILARIOUS!Cause she better do at least 120K with all this promo!I mean 120K is flop for some people but for Keri.Eeh that’s like hitting a million.LOL

  46. credits December 15, 2010

    alright, so people still wanna try and say she can’t sing after hearing this? get outta here!

  47. Lioness December 15, 2010

    i really love this song. super cute

  48. likeCAESAR December 18, 2010

    This puts me in the mind of “impossible’ by shontelle for some reason. I can dig it..
