In a perfect world, Keri Hilson would have seen her debut album released at the end of 2008, but instead of having it’s release overshadowed by the other major releases in the last couple of months of last year, her record company delayed it’s release ’til 2009. Smart move. The album’s just been released in the United States – it’s Australian release in a month’s time – and although local radio is currently gobbling up ‘Return The Favour’, the US is already at single No.4, this one featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo on guest vocal duties. The clip features the R&B vixen lounging seductively on her doona, in the skimpiest micro-shorts since Kylie found a pair for 50p. With a sharp look and an even sharper sound, Keri could most definitely join the chorus of new talent who’ll be ripping up local airwaves in 2009.
