Keri Hilson, Kanye West & Ne-Yo ‘Knock You Down’ Free Music Video

In the last few years Keri Hilson has become the rising R&B star to watch. Keri Hilson has not only been penning hooks for rap songs since the early 2000s but she has written songs for J-Lo and Britney Spears and guest featured on many of the decade’s biggest hits. Prior to the release of her solo album ‘In A Perfect World…’ she was most famous for her work on the Timbaland album ‘Shock Value’ on which she sang on several main tracks. Keri Hilson has also made guest appearances in several artists’ videos, for example Usher, Ne-Yo and Nelly.

Born in 1982, Keri Hilson has been a player in the music industry since the tender age of 14 when she was part of a girl group called D'Signe. The girl group fell through and she turned to after school clubs and groups to express her musical ideas, eventually to become a backing singer and songwriter whilst at high school. She formally became a songwriter in 2001 at the age of 19, writing songs for Ludacris, Brtiney Spears, Ciara and Usher and her work in this capacity and as a backing singer led to her appearance on the Xzibit single ‘Mean Muggin'‘ in 2004. In 2006 she was eventually signed to Timbaland's label having proved herself as a talented songwriter and vocal artist. In 2007 she made several appearances on Timbaland's album, the most notable being her cameo on ‘The Way I Are’ and ‘Scream’ with Nicole Scherzinger from The Pussycat Dolls.

In early spring 2009, Keri Hilson's long awaited album ‘In A Perfect World…’ was finally released following budget restrictions at her label. The album has received global popularity and has spawned several fantastic singles such as ‘Return the Favor’, ‘Energy’ and ‘Turnin' Me On’ with Lil’ Wayne, all of which were produced by Timbaland. Her second release in the UK is ‘Knock You Down’ which features her previous collaborators Kanye West and Ne-Yo. The single is a collaboration between many different songwriters including Kanye West, with Keri Hilson making last minute changes to make the song her own.

Free Music Video - Keri Hilson, Kanye West & Ne-Yo ‘Knock You Down’

‘Knock You Down’ is definitely a typical product of the Keri Hilson and Timbaland hit-making pairing as it combines a heavy thumping bass beat with silky vocals and a sensational rap. The song is powerful and will definitely get stuck in your head as the hook is catchy and great for filling dance floors. The music video is also typical of Hilson as it shows an empowered sexy woman struggling with the balance of her love life as Kanye West and Ne-Yo play lovers rivalling for her attention. The video has become very popular with some due to Hilson's provocative clothing (or lack of).
