Keri Hilson Hits #1

Published: Wednesday 2nd Feb 2011 by Sam

R&B star Keri Hilson has cause for celebration this week; her latest single ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ has hit the top spot on Urban radio.

Buffered by a host of promotional appearances (including stops at the Jay Leno Show and VH1 Divas) and a strong iTunes presence (half a million downloads to date), the song  has experienced a surge in spins as of late, propelling it to the top of the Urban radio chart. {Source}

Congratulations Ms. Hilson!

    I am still waiting for this b**** to praise and pay homage to Queen Mariah and to say how influenced she was by the AMAZING voice by the best selling female artist of all time Mariah Carey

  2. Nana February 2, 2011

  3. Stoney-Brie February 2, 2011

  12. T-vince February 2, 2011

    ready for buy you now……………

  13. jaybarbiebitch February 2, 2011

    It took almost 5 months and p**** popping antics but she got it how late i guess and @cbstan @ this point Kim Zolciak is slaying Ciara why if she was going to release a new single it should have been weeks ago and for someone to say this is her 1st number 1 wasnt TMO and KYD number 1s too? *sips tea*

  14. stan February 2, 2011

    and yet you said she should stop promoting this song #lmao

    congrats to her

  15. Sunflower27828 February 2, 2011

    Congratulations Ms. Keriii….Babyyyyy……She has the Number 1 Urban song on Mediabase’s Chart and Chris Brown has the Number 1 Urban song on Nielsen’s BDS Chart. She said in a recent interview that her collab with Breezy (“One Night Stand”) might be her next urban release. Now, wouldn’t that be something, the 2 Urban Number 1 chart toppers getting together to make a Number 1 hit on both radio charts. Go Breezy and Ms. Keriiii….Babyyy…….!!!!!11

  16. LaFrench February 2, 2011

    congrats!

    I was beginning to wonder what this song was doing on the charts. It’s always in heavy rotation on the radio. [and i’m not talking about urban stations either]

    I don’t really care for her music or new awkward dance moves but i guess she had to come up with something to remain in the shadows of relevance.

    [ SN: follow me on twitter @frenchavant]

  17. mark ginnis February 2, 2011

    I am proud of her work. She worked this song to the top of a major chart and has 500,000 sales of the song. Good she will probably not get dropped and will have a chance at another single video. hopefil not the raunchy TWLM

  18. cb stan 4 eva February 2, 2011

    lmao where was tmo & kyd number one at?i will wait for reciepts….haha now thats the real tea…oppss

  19. cb stan 4 eva February 2, 2011

    andciara is not doing nothing right now lmao keri will always remain in her shadows just wait n watch

  20. Jwellz February 2, 2011

    CONGRADS KERI HILSON..YOUR HARD WORK & LATE NIGHT PERFORMANCES & PROMO IS FINALLY PAYING OFF..DID SHE REALLY CONFIRM “ONE NIGHT STAND” AS THE NEXT URBAN SINGLE BECAUSE I LOVE THAT SONG LOL..I SEE BIG THINGS HAPPENNG FOR KERI AFTER THIS ERA

    NOW I CAN’T WAIT FOR CIARA TO RELEASE “TURN IT UP” & “YOU CAN GET IT”..SO I CAN WATCH HER HARD PAY OFF..BECAUSE SHE HAS WORKED SO HARD THIS ERA & HAS BEEN GOING THRU SO MUCH..GOD HAS SOMETHING BIG FOR CIARA COMING UP..JUST CAN’T WAIT

  21. Traci Summers February 2, 2011

    WHERE THE F*** IS BUYOU?? i still think she should make an extended mix will LIL KIM on it.. cuz kim brought that flava.. keri wants nicki n kim both on it.. then she should put them both on it but work with them sepereately in the video so ther not together at all.

  22. Traci Summers February 2, 2011

    AND um… Keri Hilson always has a time where she “thinks” shes shat on ciara. but then ciara comes back and kills her all over again just wait until “Turn It Up” and “You Can Get It” comes out. the videos. #SLAYED #WIGSSNATCHED

  23. Alexander February 2, 2011

    She knocked off Trey Songz! I love it

  24. Royalkev February 2, 2011

    I can’t stand this chick! I don’t even know why I’m annoyed with her so much! It’s started from the first day I ever heard of her. The only other person that gets under my skin this way is Gaga. There both arrogant people that can’t control what comes out there mouths! Atleast in Gaga’s case she does have a few more reasons to be than Keri does.

    Anyway, this is 1more for Keri… so congrats!

  25. Royalkev February 2, 2011

    Hmmmm… *rereading the post*
    You know what, I’ll postpone my congratulations until this spills over into another chart.

  26. Lioness February 2, 2011

    Gettem KERI!!!!

  27. Prince February 2, 2011

    Thats great Ms.Kerry baby! But i dont know about releasing One Night Stand as the next urban single. I jus dont see the hype around that song its just kinda boring. That song is for Powerfull Voices. Maybe if they do it live i might start 2 like it. She need to focus on releasing Buyou and Lose Control as singles. Keri girl I lovvvvveeee ur album!!!!! I cant get enough of it!!!!! Lol

  28. Sunflower27828 February 2, 2011

    @Alexander……..Keri’s Number 1 is for Urban Radio (Mediabase) NOT the Billboard Urban Chart. We’ll find out tomorrow when that chart is refreshed if Trey is Number 1 again…..Right now, he’s been Number 1 for 13 weeks…..That’s about 10 weeks to long in my books….lol

  29. musicfan February 2, 2011

    it was about time with all the promo… kelly rowland’steam should learn from hers

  30. sabrina February 2, 2011

    Good for her. She is a hard worker even if I’m not into her music, she really is out there.

  31. DUMMIES February 2, 2011

    ….I LOVE the HATE that she gets for being #1 🙂

    ….And to the person that said TMO & KYD wasn’t #1 are you DUMB or STUPID?….

  32. lostonez February 2, 2011

    congrats keri now its time for you to release lose control and all the boys

  33. QueenSize February 2, 2011

    I love Keri. She seems so cool and down to earth. I would love for her to remix it with Faith Evans and the chick from Dirty Money. Not Dawn. Even be hotter if she used the people she immulated in the video. Diana, T-Boz, Janet Jackson.

  34. Avenger February 2, 2011

    Mariah Carey Stan (Lamb), shut up. Why do people like you insist on getting on the Internet and acting like idiots?

  35. X_POSED99 February 2, 2011

    Who caresss!! Her album sales are still an epic fail. Trending on twitter.

  36. Legendtina February 2, 2011

    1. keri hilson already said mariah carey influenced her on jay leno idiot
    2. knock you down was #1 on the R&B charts and #3 on the hott 100
    3. turnin me on was #2 on the R&B charts and #15 on the hott 100
    4. pretty girl rock is currenty #6 on R&B charts and #35 on the hott 100
    5. pretty girl rock peaked at #31 with urban airplay and itunes alone. It has just now been added to mainstream and rythmic/pop radio. The song is rising rapidly so im sure it will go top 20. on the hott 100 and may even hit #1 on r&b charts. we will see tomorrow

  37. X_POSED99 February 2, 2011

    Her cd has yet to go Tin Certification. #EPICFAIL

  38. T_vince February 2, 2011

    “One Night Stand” Next single she will slay with it cause that’s the next best song beside buy you and lose control

  39. ~RiCiBey(Breezy)~ February 2, 2011

    Congratulations, Miss Keri Baaaabyyyyy 🙂 ….Keri grew on me. And Im happy shes seeing success. And Im also glad that shes releasing “1 Night Stand” as a single. The chemistry is blinding between Keri and Chris, and the song is everything..

  40. VA STAND UP!! February 2, 2011

    Um…congrats. That’s good for her..I guess. Lord knows she has promoted the hell out that song but I still don’t think it was the hit that she wanted it to be. *shrugs*I am so over ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ though and I seriously don’t want to see her perform it ANYWHERE else! She needs to move on to her next single ASAP! Her album is full of potential singles!

    She needs to hurry up and release ‘One Night Stand’ with Breezy as her urban single! Its already got a halh a million views on Youtube and CB is hot right now sothat song will do well on urban radio. I’m dying to see what the video will be like.

    I’m hoping she will release ‘Lose Control’ soon as well too. If she does a really hot video I think that has the potential to do well on Hot 100 more than any other song on her album. Then she can start performing that instead of ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ ALL the time.

    She has so many good songs on this album I hope her team doesn’t let her down. They have done good with all her performances, she needs to get new material out soon.

  41. kekeluvsu February 2, 2011

    Y’all act like going #1 on the R&B charts is an ugly curse that nobody wants to get. #1 is #1 no matter where that s*** is. And I don’t even f*** with Keri like that.

  42. Legendtina February 2, 2011

    @xposed um keri album just came out in december 21st its hasnt even been out for 2 months idiot. At least she didnt pull a ciara. ciara aint even reached 80k yet. Ker is only on her 2nd single. The way you love me is not a single it was promo. it has not been sent to any type of radio stations. so keri will still have about 3 or 4 more singles to go. this album will at least go Gold and it will sell over 1 million world wide. In a perfect world did 1 million world wide and 540k in the U.S.

  43. sierra February 3, 2011

    we all knew she’d get SOME sort of #1, dont lie. keri’s worked her ass off these past few months and she deserves it. Ciara meanwhile is digging through garbage cans looking for some hits.

  44. lola February 3, 2011

    LOL, why the hell are people and urban blogs acting like this is a big achievement? “Knock You Down” peaked at number 3 on the BILLBOARD HOT 100! I mean, it was only because Kanye and Ne-Yo were on it, but that was big. Reaching number 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart is nothing! It has peaked at number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100. Can you say flop? She’s supposed to be growing as an artist and coming for her so called competition Beyonce and Rihanna, when she is still only an urban artist. S***, Chris Brown’s “Deuces” reached number 15 on the Billboard 100 and that was straight contemporary R&B. Skeri’s :Pretty Girl Rock” is bubblegum generic R&B/POP. She needs to sit down. How come you didn’t report that her album has only sold 190,000 copies after over two months of being released? LOL

  45. angie February 3, 2011

    lol Sierra i am a ciara fan but that s*** was funny

  46. chris February 3, 2011

    lola you dumb c*** its only been 2 months she is a new artist she aint f***** mariah

  47. angie February 3, 2011

    thats 190,000 in the us this album will sell over a million world wide just like her last album did

  48. mindgames February 3, 2011

    wow you haters are PATHETIC. -_- YOU are failures and flops. NOT HER. GET LIVES. stay presssssssssssssssssed!!!!!!!

    always bring ciara and others into the conversation. f*** off.

  49. Legendtina February 3, 2011

    @LOLA

    Chile sit down keri hilson>>>>> your life while keri is living the life you are sitting there wearing rags lmfaooo living in a house that aint even over 500,000 dollars.

    Anyway pretty girl rock is NOT a flop people always said keri would NEVER see the HOTT 100 and pretty girl rock is still rising it will go top 20 like i ssaid on the hott 100. and beyonce and rihanna aint her competion. Hell kesha and pink could be her competion just because she black don’t mean ppl tryin to compete for beyonce and rihanna. i dont even notice beyonce and rihanna. neither one of them catch my attention. and neither one of them are on top. taylor swift and britney spears are the ones who are sellin the most records.

  50. lbonit February 3, 2011

    The title is misleading she’s not number one on the charts that matter but good for her. This is almost as bad as being the number one added song and still not doing anything. PGR isn’t that big of a hit yeah it’s gold so what. y’all still try to call ciara out and even with two back to back flops Keri will never have a #1 on the hot100 or an album to do past platinum in the us or anywhere else for that matter. The Goodies Album and singles> Keri’s whole career

  51. Speaks Truth February 3, 2011

    Congrads Keriiii!!! But I’m so mad with CIARA right now, She Should have been still promoting “ride” & “Gimme dat” I don’t give f*** how bad it flop, if she would have shove it down folks throat, clearly miss Keri did with “pretty girl rock”, then maybe the album coils have sold more, but let’s hope that “Turn it up” and “You can get it” brings her the attention she need cuz whewwwww

  52. KD February 3, 2011

    Good for her, but reaching #1 on the urban chart is kinda like being told that you have won $1 000 000 in Monopoly money.

  53. LSZ February 3, 2011

    Who really cares about the RnB chart? I thought singles didn’t matter since Rihanna being deemed a singles artist is a joke? hypocrit, much? Anyways I thought you were talking about the Billboard HOT 100 Sam, which is the one that matters. And what position is her album? Congrats to Keri nonetheless

  54. LSZ February 3, 2011

    *Urban Radio

  55. hp February 3, 2011

    OK I WANT SOMEBODY TO TELL ME THE TRUTH WHO HAS SOLD MORE,,
    MARIAH CAREY OR MADONNA,,,,,,,,,,THANKS ALREADY

  56. Anon February 3, 2011

    Proud of Miss Keri Baby!!! Loving Pretty Girl Rock. Just wish she hadn’t did that whole Rick Ross thing. She needn’t not cheapen herself in order to sell records. Heaven knows we see enough of that already.

  57. Legendtina February 3, 2011

    ^^^ nobody said she was #1 ON R&B CHARTS IDIOT. YOU ARE CLEARLY AN UNEDUCATED HOOD RAT. THEY SAID SHE #1 ON URBAN RADIO. THAT MEANS HER SONG IS THE MOST PLAYED SONG ON ALL URBAN RADIO STATIONS YOU DAMN FOOL… READING IS FUNDAMENTAL

  58. d February 4, 2011

    ride was #2 on rnb charts. ithe single went plantum. the video broke records in views.

    keri is most played on urban radio this week. she give the single free downloads on itunes for months. i’d hardly call that ishing on cici

  59. tones February 5, 2011

    I was gonna post a postive comment about keri but I am not, her fans are acting like her song reaching #1 on urban radio after nearly 5 months is an accomplishment, her debut selling only 850K WW and not 1 million WW is an huge feat. ride has sold over 750K downloads, was #3 on the R&B charts and #1 on urban radio for over 1 month and was #42 on the hot 100 and charted in over 10 countries and keri hilson is no where near a new artist, she’s been on ppl s*** since 2005 and her 1st single came out in april of 2008, i can bet money that once turn it up is released and it slays the charts, seeing as how it’s already getting airplay in europe and reached #72 in japan a few weeks ago, keri hilson will be simply forgotten, if anything keri hilson should be thanking ciara because if fantasy ride hadn’t flopped, where she be at now, no where. ciara doesn’t need to have a hit right now because she dozen’s of those : Goodies, 1,2 Step, Oh, Like You, Lose Control, So What, Promise, Like a Boy, Ride, Get Up, And I, LSM, Never Ever, Go Girl, Takin’ By My Love, Just Stand Up, Promise Ring, Stepped on My J’z, Work, Like a Surgeon, Speechless, Gimmie Dat and Can’t Leav Em’ Alone. Ciara’s first 2 albums by themselves s*** on keri’s career as of now, so keri fans, let’s not get too cute because when it comes to black female artists out now, keri will always get honorable mention behind ciara, rihanna, beyonce, alicia keys, MJB, Monica, leona lewis, fantasia, jennifer hudson

  60. DCS26 February 7, 2011
