Keri Hilson New Music & Tour Info
Keri Hilson’s second single, “Turnin Me On,” lands at the number one spot at Urban Radio this week. The video peaked at number one on BET last week and has been one of the top ten videos for four consecutive weeks. Produced by Polow Da Don and featuring Lil Wayne, the song is also climbing up the pop chart. Hilson and Lil Wayne performed the song nightly as they toured the country together on the “I Am Music Tour”.
Nurtured between Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group and Polow’s Zone 4 Inc., In A Perfect World… boasts amazing sounds from a slew of hitmakers like Timbaland, Polow, and Danja. The album, which features guest appearances by Timbaland, Lil Wayne, Akon, Keyshia Cole, and Ne-Yo, will be released on MMG/Zone 4/Interscope and is set to arrive in stores on March 24, 2009. It’s a watershed moment that meets both goals-it sounds and feels great. Speaking up for all the ladies, In A Perfect World…also looks to empower women to be strong, independent and determined. “No human is exempt from the realities of life- heartbreak, failure, success…” Keri comments. This takes all forms throughout the album which reveals Keri’s ability to translate every day trials and tribulations into engaging music.
Hilson has received many accolades in the media, having graced the covers of Fader and Trace Magazine and has been championed in the pages of Rolling Stone, Blender, Vibe, Entertainment Weekly and Interview to name a few.
