Keri Hilson!

Miss Keri is one music Diva I heart!!! I loved her from the very start when she first featured on Xzibit's track, "Hey Now (Mean Mugging)" in 2004. Then it was revealed she had written several songs for artists like Usher, Kelly Rowland, Ciara and Ludacris. As well as hit songs like Mary J. Blige's "Take Me as I Am", Omarion's "Ice Box", "Crazy in Love, the Pussycat Dolls' "Wait a Minute",Britney Spears' "Gimme More" and also Ciara's "Like a Boy".

She pretty much remained behind the scenes till she featured on Xzibit's track. Keri made her performing debut at the 2004 MTV Europe Music Awards in which she performed the song live with Xzibit. In 2006 she signed as an artist to Timbaland's record label, Mosley Music. In 2007 she made several appearances on Timbaland's solo effort Shock Value, including the singles "Scream" and "The Way I Are" which reached number three on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Then came the albums "In a Perfect World" released 2009 and the current steaming one, "No Boys Allowed" released 2010. I love the first album, very versatile all through with the great collaborations she had on it like Ne-Yo, Kanye, Keyshia Cole, Timberland, Akon, Lil Wayne and Trina. The second album is equally a classic, especially the "Pretty Girl Rock title song". It's so silly how people have been underrating this song saying she's copying Beyonce and copying this person and that person. People can't just seem to appreciate something new and different, there always has to be something. I think it's a Beautiful video, paying homage to female artists starting from the 20's.. Josephine Baker, Dorothy Dandridge, Patty Andrews (as a member of the Andrews Sisters), Diana Ross (as a member of The Supremes), Donna Summer, Janet Jackson (Rhythm Nation 1814 era) and also Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins (as a member of TLC performing "Creep").
