Keri Hilson’s debut album In a Perfect World… is an interesting mix of beats and featured artists. She has everyone from Lil’ Wayne to Keyshia Cole featured on her debut album.
It is no coincidence that Keri Hilson would have so many well-known artists on her debut album. She has been working in the music business since she was 18, about ten years, writing even Britney Spears’ comeback hit “Gimme More.”
Hilson was featured on Timbaland’s famous song, “The Way I Are.” It is no mystery that Timbaland would be featured on her debut album. Surely enough, he is on one of the album’s highlight songs called “Return the Favor.”
The more well-known songs on her album are “Knock You Down” featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo, “Change Me” featuring Akon, “How Does it Feel,” “Energy” and of course her first song off the album “Turnin’ Me On” featuring Lil’ Wayne.
“Knock You Down” is a sweet love song with a catchy chorus and an interesting video with slow motion falling, a love triangle and some painting. “How Does it Feel” is a good song if you are mad at an ex-boyfriend and you want him to see how it feels to see you with another guy.
“Change Me” starts off interesting then turns into a sweet love song that just shows their raw emotions and feelings. “Energy” is a song that shows how she didn’t think that this love would take all of her being and all of her soul. The first single off of her album “Turnin’ Me On” featuring Lil’ Wayne is a catchy song that is energetic and easy to dance to.
I give Keri Hilson’s debut album In a Perfect World… three stars out of five. A lot of songs had memorable lyrics, but other songs didn’t match the better ones on the album. There were definitely some good songs on this album.
Overall, if you like this type of music and have heard her songs on her MySpace or on the radio and liked them, her album is worth buying. Otherwise you can buy select songs you like from Itunes.
