Chris Brown links up with Keri Hilson


Chris Brown is trying to bounce back from his legal issues with a new album.  He’s already asking Keri Hilson to work some of her hitmaking magic for him. 

“He contacted me like four or five days ago,” Hilson said earlier this week during a promotional appearance at Wet Seal in L.A.’s Beverly Center Mall. “Us working together will probably be the first project I’ve worked on as a songwriter in a while.”

She has already collaborated with Brown on the single, “Superhuman” as well as writing “Young Love” on his debut cd.  Hilson feels that his fan base is strong enough for him to bounce back from his recent trials (pun intended).


“It is unfortunate what they are going through, but I always feel like if you’ve ever had a fan base, you’re really only one song away from appeasing that fan base,” she said. “Whether that song is autobiographical or whether you want to talk about that or not, you’re just one hit song away. And that’s what I think of the industry in a nutshell.”

She might be right about that because if R. Kelly can make a comback then Chris probably won’t have too much trouble.

Ain’t No Love in This Club


So some of you might have heard how Keri Hilson dissed Beyonce and Ciara on the remix of her hit, “Turnin’ Me On” featuring T-Pain and Lil Wayne.  For those of you that missed this, here’s how it went down.  The diss track was released by super-producer, Polow da Don, who is also Keri’s close friend and head of her label, Zone 4.  Keri’s verse is below and you can listen to the whole song here:

“I ain’t trying to start no mess but there’s something on my chest/ that I need to get off/ cause you turning me off /your vision cloudy if you think you the best, you can dance/ you can sing / but need to move it to the left/She need to go have some babies/She need to sit down she fake/them other chicks ain’t even worth my time to talk about/Been getting dollars/ go and get your money up/Go head and tell these folks how long I’ve been writing your song/ I been putting you on/ Just check the credits ho/ And if you want me you can find me in Decatur ho.”  

Well, Keri’s beef with Bey seems to stem from an incident involving Usher.  Keri collaborated with Usher and created a verse for, Love in This Club, Part II, the remix to his hit, Love in This Club.  Keri’s vocals were scrapped after Beyonce heard the song and wanted to be on the track.  Usher’s consolation prize to Keri was allowing her to be his love interest in the video for the original song.  According to the NY Post, this wasn’t much of a prize.  It was reported that Keri was mistreated on the video set by Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster.  Here’s what was written:

“The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly – she looked like an extra,” and Foster “took a dislike to Usher’s longtime choreographer, Jamaica, and banned her from the set.”“It was supposed to be a sexy video shoot,” “And Tameka was there the entire time guarding like a watchdog. It was ridiculous – she knows Keri and knows she’s no video ho or Karrine Steffans.” “Tameka is very insecure,” “Even in rehearsals she was weird and clearly not happy that Keri is so gorgeous. Tameka threw a lot of attitude. The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly – she looked like an extra. Tameka wouldn’t let Keri have her hairdresser there – she had to use the hairdresser who was doing the extras.”

Tameka is reported to be possessive, insecure and very jealous.  But if Usher likes it, I love it.  I’m just surprised  he married a woman at all, let alone had 2 kids.  He was always a tad bit Miss Honey-ish to me. Maybe Tameka shouldn’t be so worried about Usher’s female friends…
