Product Description

CD Description

If you think Keri Hilson looks and sounds familiar, you’d be right. She was the guest vocalist on two of the biggest hits of the noughties--Timbaland’s "The Way I Are" and "Scream". She also penned smash-hit tracks for the biggest pop, R&B and urban stars int he business: Britney Spears ("Gimme More"), Pussycat Dolls ("Wait A Minute") and Usher ("Love In This Club pt 2" feat. Beyonce & Lil Wayne). Plus she’s featured in the videos for Ne-Yo’s "Miss independent" and Nas’ "Hero". The Atlanta-born singer/songwriter is now ready for the limelight to be focused on her, as she releases her US Top Five album "In A Perfect World". Produced by Timbaland and Polow Da Don, the record features her debut UK single "Return The Favor" featuring Timbaland and guest appearances by some huge names: Timbaland, Lil Wayne, Akon, Trina and Keyshia Cole, while Kanye West and Ne-Yo lend their vocals to single "Knock You Down".

BBC Review

Some people wait a long time to get their name in lights. Keri Hilson's waited twelve years (literally: her signature's scrawled in neon on the cover of her debut solo album), but on In A Perfect World! this eternal hook girl struggles to fill the shoes of a solo songstress.

There's no denying Hilson has a great voice, but it lacks the feisty edge of Scherzinger, Blige or Knowles. And though the collaborator list reads like a Who's Who of R&B, (Timbaland, Kanye, Ne-Yo, Akon, Trina) it all feels a little bit repetitive.

Timbaland, also on Executive Producer duties, joins her on pan-pipe laden Return The Favor - which lacks the catchy hook of their previous collaborations. Both Scream and The Way I Are appear here as bonus tracks - but where is her finest collaborative hour! Nas' Hero? Inexplicably missing.

Kanye and Ne-Yo collaboration Knock You Down is the next single and the biggest potential hit. Slow Dance - co-written with Justin Timberlake - is laden with potential in its first Prince-channelling two minutes, but loses its way completely when it breaks down into beatboxing.

The bland feeling is all the more surprising given that Hilson co-wrote 12 of the 17 tracks. It's not like she doesn't have the magic formula - she wrote Gimme More for Britney, Wait A Minute for the Pussycat Dolls and has also penned hits for Ciara, Usher and Ludacris. Maybe by the time she came round to compiling her own stuff she'd run out of inspiration.

Other good points on the album are Make Love (one of the few she didn't help write) and How Does It Feel, an interesting upbeat take on If I Were A Boy, mixed by Nelly Furtado's other half. But Alienated is like a lacklustre Jai Ho! - and there's that repetitive vibe again.

''Why would you change me?'' she sings on the inevitable Akon collaboration Change Me. Well! because frankly, love, your current incarnation's a bit dull. If she continues in this groove, Keri Hilson is destined always to be the bridesmaid. --Sophie Bruce

Got hold of this only a few days ago and have to say that I am exceedingly satisfied and happy with this CD. Keri Hilson is a very talented lady who has a great voice and impressive songwriting skills.

All of the songs on this album are excellent without any shadow of a doubt. All of the collaborations with other artists e.g. Keyshia Cole, Ne-Yo etc only serve to make a great album even greater.

From a personal point of view, the tracks which immediately stand out without having to press the so called rewind button are:

Return the Favor
Knock You Down
Slow Dance
Intuition
Alienated
Change Me
Energy
The Way I Are
Hurts Me

But these are just personal choices, like I've stated already, all of the songs on this CD are great in their own right. Even the Intro is good so be sure to listen to it rather than simply skipping to get the other tracks.

Specific comments on some of the lesser known tracks are as follows:

Slow Dance - quite literally makes me want to slow dance with my better half! Everything about this is spot on, production, lyrics, vocal arrangements etc. In a subconscious way, there seems to be an underlying influence of Prince lurking in the background which makes me like this all the more.

Intuition - Wonderfully catchy from a chorus point of view. Again, nice lyrics, I think many ladies may be able to relate to what Keri sings about on this track. Very infectious.

Alienated - Another wonderful, atmospheric tune which if you listen to it on an ipod is absolutely fantastic.

I cannot recommend this album enough - if you love r'n'b/urban/Timbaland/hip hop then this is definitely one to buy for the collection. For anyone else, consider giving this one a try, you may be pleasantly surprised.

This album is amazing! i was skeptical at first of Kerry because I thought she was just another Rihanna wannabe. but this album shows she is better than Rihanna! The beat running through this album is fantastic! Great for getting ready for a night out! She wrote most of the songs as well as such songs as Britney's Gimme More!!! Real talent inthis one and i recommend this album to anyone!!!!!!!!!

After hearing her work on the Timbaland album i was looking forward to hearing this album and the wait is well worth it . If you love bands like the Pussy cat dolls and Rhiannna this a must buy album 17 tracks and not 1 duff track amongst them .

I love this album and have listened to it loads. It has a good range of songs for different moods and Keri has a really great voice. I would recommend it highly and there's not a bad song on the whole album.

I could not have been happier with this album...although I waited since 2007!!! it was well worth the wait, as every track had me wantin to dance and was stuck in my head all day. All the tracks are amazing..but of course there's always stand out tracks no matter how good the album;
Intro;9/10; good way of startin out the album..as she says WE BOUT TO GET IT POPPIN.
Turnin Me On;8/10; Considering how long this charted I wasn't really feelin this track..her voice is too beautiful to be basically talkin through the song..but it is catchy.
Get Your Money Up;10/10; Absolutey AAmazing! This is constantly on playback and needs to be, or should have been, a freakin single!
Return the Favor;10/10; Love the beat on this and the lyrics are on point
Knock You Down;10/10; When I heard this I got REALLY excited for the album..this song is really beautiful and catchy
Slow Dance;9/10; Not on of my favorites, but its a nice smooth R&B joint, little too slow for me though lol
Make Love;10/10; beautiful catchy track, diappointed this didn't air over here
Intuition;10/10; love it.
How Does it Feel;10/10; needs to be a single!!! My favorite track probabaly.
Alienated; 10/10; again..no words can describe..loved it.
Tell Him the Truth; 1000/10; another one of my absolute faves..REALLY sexy beat and I'm really feelin this track.
Change Me;10000000/10; LOL, super catchy song. LOVE IT, so much single-worthy material for her to use here.
Energy; 10/10; i love this song the minute i heard it and im glad it's on the album, even though i'd already played it about a thousand times.
Tell him the Truth; 9/10; really beautiful track.
to sum up..buy this album, you won't regret it..i thought she was good in the Way I Are, but this just exceeded my expectations..although i was expecting a pretty good album from here but STILL.

I have been waiting months for the album to drop in the uk, and now the wait is almost over.
This album has pretty much every emotion on it, The beats in fact the whole tracks are impressive, Timbaland and Polow da don have made some unbelievable tracks and then with Keri writing and not forgetting the killer hooks it's got hit written all over it.
