Keri Hilson

Ok, there are very few times when I hear a song and get excited about it but Keri’s second single “Turn Off” has just replaced my current # 1 slot. I’m appreciating the creativity in the track but moresoe the writing. Wouldn’t expect anything less from a BGITC. ATL Flavor never dies!

“I want to be a reason, not a result.” – Keri Hilson

I know I know I know! Lots of music posts but this is ‘new new’ season and of course (as I’ve already said) its all about Atlanta. This latest is from Keri Hilson and all I have to say is finally finally finally home girl! I wrote an article on her earlier this year marking her as one to watch. Up until recently Keri spent the majority of her career behind the scenes as a writer. She’s not just written songs, she’s written HITS. I appreciate her personally because of her warm spirit and sincerity when it comes to doing what she loves. Her craftsmanship and creativity as a writer is evident in everything she’s touched. Check her discography and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

It’s very difficult for anyone, let alone women, to survive in the music & entertainment industry ESPECIALLY when it comes to writing and producing. These are often the most difficult areas to break into because there is so much power in publishing. You can perform, hop-scotch, promote, and push a song or project all day…but the real money is in rights and ownership. The fact that Keri owned her position and killed it all while protecting her image and reputation deserves big ups and much respect. Be forewarned…Keri’s worth ethic is stellar as well so I know she’s going hard with this. Definitely a BGITC groomed and ready to take the number one spot. Move over…(you know who).

You can go here to watch her video because you tube does no justice!

Find out what Keri’s all about.

*ps – some of you have emailed me about the lead guy in the video lolol. His name is Christian Keyes, as for what he does – Christian does a little bit of everything (music, acting, business, modeling) and last time I checked he was taken, but that was a long time ago so I’m not sure.  You guys are funny! (he IS a looker doe)

bye bye…I don’t miss it!

(thnx for the foto Ali M.! – The hoodies in the shot were hand made by her.)

My hair is GONE!!!! Although I thought I’d miss having a head of hair, I waved a happy goodbye as I watched the locks fall away. What’s funny is that while she was hacking I wasn’t fazed at all. I was ready for the hair and what I felt was symbolic of the season passed go so I could get on with something new. Tried the new dew out last night and um…yea. I’ll have to fill you in on the night in question later! Not much time to talk today because I’m mad busy but I did want to let you guys know that the hair and everything that came along with it is FINITO. When I woke up this morning and rubbed my head, I smiled because I felt free and the bestest thing ever? I don’t miss AT ALL. So I’m still movin’ as yet another BGITC eloquently proclaims, “I’m still standing” but never alone. Listen to the words! (it’s a snippet but I know you feel me.)

Yes, it’s looking beautiful round these parts. Remember me.
