From The Vault: Keri Hilson – ‘The Way You Love Me (ft. Rick Ross)’

Published: Sunday 1st Apr 2018 by Joe

“I’m swaggin’, I’m swaggin’, I’m swaggin’, I’m swaggin’”

From The Vault skews racy this week with Keri Hilson’s edgy ‘The Way You Love Me.’

A love song of a different kind to say the least, ‘Love Me’ was included on Keri’s sophomore effort ‘No Boys Allowed’ in 2010.

At the time, the Rick Ross assisted jam was quite controversial due to its no hold barred lyrical content. Indeed, in many ways the song dually served as a braggadocios account of her bedroom gravitas and an emphatic instruction manual for her male companion.

For Hilson though, the main message was one of female empowerment – something she stressed many times in promotional interviews.


The formidable Laurieann “Boom Kack” Gibson directed the fiery visual. With cameos from JoJo, Dawn Richard, Columbus Short and Faith Evans, the video managed to solidly capture the essence of suggestive tune. Guns, frantic choreography, and scant outfits made it more than clear: the new and improved “Ms Keri Baby” had arrived.

[Sidenote: It’s mind-boggling how tame this plays today compared to the jaw-dropping response that greeted this on release.]


We’re scratching our heads at how 8 years have flown by without any new Keri material. It’s been teased in earnest, but we hope to see a return in the coming months of an artist who seemed to be on the cusp of something big.

Ready when you are, Keri.

    Rick Ross is my baby daddy. I just love dark fat men with dark gums, especially when they have money.

      • Suicide Blonde April 1, 2018

      • JOHNVIDAL April 1, 2018

        I don’t care if a dude is small or big because most of the time he gonna be versatile with me. Now if his asss is flat then we got a problem.

      • Suicide Blonde April 1, 2018

  3. DanYiel Iman April 2, 2018

    I’ve always loved her sound!!

  4. A&R April 2, 2018

    She was on the way and what was even more notable about her rise is that she came into the game later and older than most.. yet grabbing attention left and right. What tends to knock of the potential leads are life issues and a lack of drive/consistency.

    Keri was a CONTENDER FOR THR THROWN, bih.
