KERI HILSON FEATURED IN ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"Entertainment Weekly" handpicked songwriter-turned-singer Keri Hilson for their Summer Music Preview issue.
The ATL-based singer picked over 200 songs before finalizing her debut record lineup. Keri also talked with "EW" about five tracks including her Justin Timberlake-collaboration, "Slow Dance" and her lead single, "Energy".
"Slow Dance": Justin Timberlake co-wrote this ode to the slow jams of the late '70s and early '80s. "Some of my favorite songs come from that time. Vocally, I thknk it's one of my best performances."
"Energy": Written and produced by the Runways (Natasha Bedingfield's "Love Like This"), this break-up groove - a potential first single - instantly got Timbaland's stamp of approval. "He loved it so much that he didn't want to touch it. Very rare."
Keri's upcoming debut record, "In A Perfect World" will be in stores on September 23rd.
