Keri Hilson Goes For The Gold

Prior to the last few songs that Keri Hilson has put out, I was never really a fan. But now Ms. Hilson is forcing you to listen with her flowing tunes and hip hop infused sounds. According to Interscope Records, has her first gold single, thanks to a little help from Ne-Yo and Kanye West.

The trio came together to collaborate on Keri’s “Knock You Down” track and the union proved to be a very profitable one. KYD has so far sold over 600,000 units, with the ringtone ringing up another 500,000 in sales. The single presently sits at #3 on the Billboard charts, jumping four spots up from last week and overtaking both “Halo” from Beyonce and “Blame It” from Jamie Foxx. Keri needs only take out Pitt Bull (I Know You Want Me) and The Black Eyed Peas (Boom Boom Pow) to achieve her first #1 single- an accomplishment very few singers achieve with their first record.

Keri Hilson will also be seen at this years BET Awards show which airs on June 28th. Keri will be nominated for four awards including Best Female R&B artist, Best New Artist, and Best Collaboration. Hilson is also up for a Viewer’s Choice Award for “Turnin’ Me On”.
