Keri Hilson Dropping A New Album In 2011!!!

Yessssssssss!!!!!!!! I love her but I loved her much more before I heard that lackluster a** sophomore album. There’s literally one song on the whole set that gets regular spins on my iPod. “All The Boys” is a great song, she really could’ve just put that on “In A Different World” though.

I think she’s back in the studio so quickly because she’s seen the error of her ways. While “No Boys Allowed” debuted with 100k+ it’s first week and “Pretty Girl Rock” remains in the Billboard’s r&b top 10, finding a new single is going to be a stretch. The first single “Breaking Points” didn’t make a splash at radio and  her 3rd radio submission, “Love Me” was foolish and was accompanied by an even more foolish video.

She’ll be back in the studio next month with Polow Da Don! Good luck Ms Keri!

Keri Hilson Talks Ciara’s “Basic Instinct” and Album Sells!!!

The title makes you think she’s finna come with some shade but that’s not at all the case. She almost defended poor Ciara’s first week. 37,000 copies, that’s a mess but I saw it coming. She didn’t deliver a strong enough video for “Gimme That” but I’ll talk about that in another post!

The interviewers cut up but I’m sure there’s something to that Nicki Minaj having Lil Kim pulled but who really is tryna work with Lil Kim these days lol…

LOL, they straight went in on Chris!!!

Keri Hilson “No Boys Allowed” Full Album Review!!!

Hmmmmm…. This one is iffy.. at first! Keri’s new album isn’t the fire debut that “In A Perfect World” was but “No Boys Allowed” is a solid album and a testament to her song writing prowess. Despite the foolish single choices and the way more the questionable “The Way You Love Me”, Ms Keri is still one of my favorites artist..

Highlighted Tracks:

– All Of The Boys

– Lose Control Ft Nelly

– Bayou Ft J Cole

– Let Me Down

– Breaking Point

“All Of The Boys” drew tears on this end, one of the realest love songs I’ve heard in a long time. She’s beast on the penz and writes from experience and her heart and you can really tell these are her words.

“Lose Control” sounds like something Rihanna passed on for “Loud” but it works, love it!!!

“Let Me Down” hit real too, even though it’s only a minute or so, love that song, love this album.

I’ll never forgive her for “The Way You Love Me”, FOOLISH! She also could have made better use of Chris Brown on “One Night Stand”, that weak vocal arrangement would have fit Trey Songz better. Chris’s voice is much stronger then that..

Again, it’s not the jewel that “In A Perfect World” was but it’s solid album.The production is on point even on the songs I don’t feel and she’s become a better singer over the years. Thank you Ms Keri..

The promo wasn’t handled right and she made some horribe singles choices after “Breaking Point” so I know this album isn’t gonna do sh** on that album chart, maybe a 3 or 4 debut but it’s solid!

Score Card:

Production – 5

Vocals – 4

Listenability – 3

Penz (writing) – 4

TrueClefMusic Rating: 4.00

I won’t say cop it immediately but it’s a good listen and I know there are a few songs that you’ll really love.

I LIVE!!!! My girl is back, one of the most talented female song writers since the original Ashanti! Can’t wait for the new album!!!

This is the official first single from her upcoming album, “No Boys Allowed”. The album will be available sometime later this year and the video for the first single is scheduled to be shot sometime next month!

Keri’s one of the brightest and one of the most under-estimated. Her first album is second only to Mariah’s “Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel”, GREAT ALBUM!!! I can’t wait to hear the new material!

Top Female R&B Albums In Recent Memory!!!

There are many great r&b albums out there with a lot to give but some stand head and shoulders above the rest. A good album is comprised of music that is listenable, well written, produced, and sung. Names like Maxwell and Jamie Foxx come to find but I’m not going to be talking about the boys.. It’s the females that really give it to me, vocally at least.

I have carefully chosen 3 albums that have been released roughly in the last 2 years. Here’s what I came up with, from least to greatest.

At the time, I thought this was the best female r&b effort since Mariah’s “The Emancipation of Mimi”. Keri’s debut is incredibly well produced and written! That’s where she got her 5’s, the 5’s that pushed her review to a 4.50 overall.

The album was listenable but the vocals aren’t as stellar as I needed them to be. She’s a good singer but doesn’t possess as much range or versatility as the other 2 women on this list.

This album completely surprised me!!! Monica came hard with a strong and extremely listenable r&b album that has become a bridge between Ms Keri and my #1 choice. Her album is more listenable then “In A Perfect World” and better sung. Monica’s voice is just as crisp as it was when she debuted in the mid 1990s. This album came out a few weeks ago, if you don’t have it, COP IT IMMEDIATELY, she did the damn thing!

This album is by far the best female r&b effort in recent memory, with vocals and listenability that sore high above the other two projects presented here. The production and writing are on point and this is perhaps Mariah’s best Def Jam release to date…perhaps better then “The Emancipation of Mimi”.. COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!
